Accelerated Reader

At Keresley Academies you can almost feel the buzz about books. All children from Reception to Year 6 are actively involved in our Accelerated Reader programme, which hooks them in to reading and leads them on a quest for their next best read.

Accelerated Reader challenges our children and encourages them to extend their reading experience. Once they have read a book, the children take a quiz on it. A result of 85% or more in that quiz means the words are added to their word count. The children try to beat their monthly target, which takes them closer to their millionaire reader reward.

The star reading assessment informs our children (and their teacher) of the number and colour of their reading level. Our librarians are available daily to support the children, as they choose their books from our busy school library.

Here are just a few of our Accelerated Reader challenge boards:
