Formby High School uses the Accelerated Reader programme (AR) which is a computer-based programme that helps teachers and parents manage and monitor children’s reading progress. Students will choose a book at the exact reading level and read it every day for at least twenty minutes. When they finish the book, they will take a short quiz on the computer to establish how much they have understood.
Three times per year, the participating students will take a reading test to measure how much progress they have made, at which point their reading level should increase.
This is an exciting opportunity for us to promote, encourage and celebrate reading.
