Accelerated Reading

At Reculver we use the Accelerated Reader programme. Children take a ‘Star Reader’ assessment three times a year which provides them with a ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development) to help to guide their reading choices. The children have free rein to choose books within their ZPD. After reading a book the children complete a quiz which helps the teachers to monitor their understanding and comprehension skills. We encourage the children to average 85% or above on their quizzes. If the children achieve 100% they receive a raffle ticket and are then entered into a prize draw.

As part of the AR programme parents can track their children’s reading from home using the ‘Home Connect’ website. Parents can receive instant feedback on the quizzes taken and help to guide their children in their reading choices

Below are details of our Accelerated Reading program.
