Over the next few weeks your child will be started a new reading programme called Accelerated Reader. The only way to become really good at understanding what we read is through practice. Reading is a skill, so the more that we do it then the better we will become, which is why we hope that this new system will encourage pupils to read even more than they did before. We will be sending out more information about it next week, but in the meantime if you want to find out more we have lots of information on our website. We are all very excited about it and I’m sure you will be too!
