Reading in Year 2
 
When children are becoming more confident and fluent around (ORT 8) they will move onto Accelerated Reading books.
 
The children will complete a reading test which will give an AR level.
 
Children pick their book at their AR level from the library in the KS1 shared area.
 
When the children have read their book and feel confident to answer questions about the plot, characters and their likes/dislikes they take an AR quiz.
 
The quiz will give the child the next AR level to take, it can move up, down or stay the same.
