Accelerated reader -

 At Mount St Mary’s we support reading for pleasure but we also want out students to become the best readers they can be.

In Years 7, 8 and 9 students complete a Star Reading Assessment which gives them a reading range. Each book is then labelled with a number on the cover so that children easily find books in their personalised range. Children are encouraged to read within their range most of the time in order to make the optimum amount of progress.

After reading a book, students then complete a quiz to check their understanding.

Children can complete their quiz at home or at school.
