Our students are fully embracing our drive to embrace a reading culture at Telford Langley School and it has been an absolute pleasure to see them engrossed in their books during READ45.
KS3 families will receive a detailed Reading Diagnostic Report in the student’s report before half term which outlines their reading age and their ZPD (which stands for Zone of Proximal Development).
All KS3 now undertake regular computerised STAR tests. These tests automatically calculate their reading age and provides a range of books the student can read to stretch and challenge them. All KS3 students then take an online quiz about their book to check the accuracy of their reading and help monitor their progress. All KS3 students, regardless of ability and reading age, have the same target of 85% accuracy as they are all reading books within their ZPD.
If you wish to review the student’s Accelerated Reader account to discuss the books they have read, monitor their progress and their percentage accuracy then please go onto our website, select Quick Links and then select Accelerated Reader Home Connect.
The log in details were posted home in March, however, it is the student’s login and password which they all (should) know. If they cannot remember please email emma.Norry2@taw.org.uk .
