Accelerated reading

What is Accelerated Reading?

Accelerated Reader is now a well-established programme we use for pupils in Primary 3 – Primary 7.  Each class enjoys using Accelerated Reading for one term. 


Term 1

Term 2

Term 3

Term 4


Pupils undertake a STAR reading test which calculates their reading age. Pupils can then choose suitable books in line with their test scores.  In class, pupils have the opportunity to read for 30 minutes every day and complete a short online test when they have finished their book.
