Accelerated Reader at KS3
Accelerated reader ensures students have a wide range of books available to them from our library that are appropriate to their ability, will support their reading development and aim to foster a love of reading. Students read a book, then take a quiz to check their understanding of what they have read. All students in Y7 and Y8 have a target to read their accelerated reader book for at least 15 minutes each day. Students reading age, effort and progress with accelerated reader now appear on student reports (further details are attached).
This regular reading practice is shown to have a significant impact on their progress across all subjects.
Form tutors will be awarding credits in week 2, 4 and 6 of each half term to reward those students who are on track to hit their accelerated reader target. We will be writing to parents in week half termly to inform you of your child’s progress with accelerated reader.
All students who hit their accelerated reader target for the half term will be awarded a Manshead Star Reader Certificate.

As parents I would ask you to do all you can to support us in encouraging your child to read for at least 15 minutes each day.
