At Ss John Fisher & Thomas More Catholic Primary, we love reading! We try to share what we most enjoy about reading and encourage the children to read new genres and ever more challenging texts.
Accelerated Reader (AR) is a reading management and monitoring programme that aims to foster independent reading. The internet-based software assesses reading age, and suggests books that match pupils’ needs and interests. Pupils take computerised quizzes on the books and earn AR points as they progress.
Why is reading so important?
