ACCELERATED READER: A GUIDE FOR PARENTS
Earl Spencer Primary school want to focus on improving the reading provision for year 2 and Key Stage 2 children. To ensure the children have access to the best fiction, non-fiction and poetry books available, we have made the decision to invest greatly in a wide range of new books which would cater for the needs of all children, a variety of interests and genres and we are committed to continuing to add to these books each year. In order to support our focus on reading, we researched a number of reading programs that would help develop a culture of ‘reading for pleasure’, as well as allowing staff, parents and pupils to monitor progress and attainment. Accelerated Reader allows Earl Spencer to achieve this.
