Accelerated Reader Programme

Can you help?


Our Key Stage 2 (P5-P7) pupils take part in the 'Accelerated Reader' programme. This provides teachers, pupils and parents with lots of information about the child's reading progress and, with individual targets set for them, children are motivated to read daily. 


There are two ways parents/friends can help...


- Do you have any good quality children's books which are no longer needed by your family? We'd be delighted to receive them and find them a new home in our class libraries. Books can be sent to your child's teacher or left at the school office.


- Could you donate a prize for the half-termly 'AR Celebration'? We like to celebrate the success of all the children who reach their targets. Previous prizes have included vouchers (Smyth's, Claire's, Dominos, Subway etc); stationery; small toys; chocolate or sweets... Anything appropriate for 8-11 year olds will be gratefully received.


Many thanks
