The importance of reading cannot be overstated, which is why at King Edward VI Lordswood School for Girls all Year 7, 8 & 9 students have been enrolled into the Accelerated Reading programme.
Accelerated Reading is a computer program that helps teachers manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at her own level and reads it at her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read.
You can also monitor your child’s progress by logging onto the Home Connect website.
