Accelerated Reader® is a programme used in many schools in the UK to support children’s reading. It allows children to choose books at their own reading level and then to take an online quiz on each book they read. We have been using Accelerated Reader® at Barnack for a year and are very pleased with the results.


Last year,  many children read more than 100 books and six children in Years 4, 5, 6 read over a million words in the year! Our top reader read over 6 million words - an incredible achievement. 


I enjoy Accelerated Reader because it is fun and it’s a challenge, and it makes reading a joy. Year 6


Reading is the best! If you are not good at reading, start now! I love reading.  Year 4
