Accelerated Reader Competition – Update

Your children may have already told you that we have a competition in school between the different classes about how much reading is done.

We as teachers can measure this by the amount of Accelerated Reader Quizzes that are taken and passed. At the moment the totals are:

1st Place – Year 5: was 6,255,155 words –  was: 6,660,784 – Now: 7,468,145

2nd Place – Year 4: was 3,701,147 words –  was: 4,006,659 – Now: 4,122,830

3rd Place – Year 6: was 2,997,317 words –  was: 3,484,863  – Now: 3,748,094

4th Place – Year 3: was 2,467,221 words –  was: 3,037,036 – Now: 3,732,669

5th Place – Year 2: was 42,323 words –  was: 227,546 – Now: 338,858

We also have some children who are in the ‘Millionaire’s Club’ which means they have read OVER ONE MILLION WORDS!

These children are:

Amara – Year 3 

Isla – Year 5 

Sophia -Year 5 

Charlie D – Year 5 

Your teachers will be in contact with you to congratulate you!


The way to add to your class word count is to read books or go onto Myon and take Accelerated Reader Quizzes on them (Please note these are to be completed independently by the children with no help from adults so that we can gauge their understanding of the text)
