Reading Schemes

Reading is given the utmost importance at Christ the King. Moving on from the development of pupils phonics skills Key Stage 1 pupils begin to initially use the Oxford Reading Tree and Rigby Star reading Schemes.

Accelerated Reader is a digital reading scheme that we have invested in at Christ the King Primary School. We are using it across Key Stage 2 from year 3 to year 6. Pupils begin the year with a Star reading test which calculates a range of books that the pupils can access. During the year pupils retake this test and their progress is recorded. After completing a reading book pupils complete an interactive quiz which informs the teacher of the comprehension levels of each child. Parents are able to follow the progress of their child online and can see a range of information such as how many books their child has read, their Star test results and their comprehension quiz scores.  

At its heart, Accelerated Reader is simple.

A pupil reads a book, takes an online quiz, and gets immediate feedback. Children respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills.
