Year 7 are currently taking part in the Accelerated Reader (AR) reading scheme. AR is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Students pick a book at their level and read it at their own pace. When finished, students take a short quiz on the computer. Passing a quiz is an indication that a student has understood what they have read.
BookBuzz Reading Programme
All students in year 7 have had the opportunity to choose their own books to take home and keep from the Bookbuzz shortlist. They are all carefully selected by a panel of experts to ensure quality, suitability and to encourage reading for pleasure.
