Christmas is Coming – Get reading!

It’s the time of year when we all write to Santa and hope for many of the gifts on our list to be under the tree or in our Christmas stocking on December 25th. Many “elves” like to have a good book amongst that selection for Santa to deliver.

The LRC and English department have been working hard to establish all year 7 and 8 pupils onto a reading program called Accelerated Reader. By now the bulk of both year groups will have undertaken the initial reading test. Once undertaken their individual results will be discussed with the pupil and a plan established for their personalised reading progression path. Once they have finished the book a Quiz is undertaken to check their understanding and indicate the next step on their pathway.

If parents would like to assist their child further, you can easily check that the book they are reading is suitable for their requirements by looking on www.arbookfind.co.uk. For that perfect stocking filler, log on as a parent, no password is required and you can search for particular topics, authors or genres.

If you would like any further information, please feel free to contact the Learning Resource Centre Manager Miss W Smith.
