2020 - 2021
Children will be bringing home books, which have been placed on the Accelerated Reader system; these have been assessed through the Accelerated reader Star reader test. Children will be retested at intervals during the year to monitor progress and recalculate book levels.
As mentioned in a previous Parentmail, it is important for children to read for at least 10 minutes a day and ideally to someone. The children need to bring back their books daily, so they can quiz and receive a new book to read.
Discovery class have been given a bookmark to write their spellings on, and to keep in their Accelerated Reader book, so they can practice spellings at home and in school. The children had five the first week and have now received a further three of their choosing. Each child’s spellings are based on their individual need. Children should be practicing these at home; we will have our spelling test on a Tuesday morning.
