There are lots of suggestions online for how to keep your child reading at home during school closures. We’ve tried to list some of them here.
To access your child’s Accelerated Reader account from home, please click on the logo on the Quick Links page of the website. Your child should know their user name and password. Please contact the school office via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you experience problems logging on and a member of staff will be in touch to help you.
If you would like to check if books you have at home have Accelerated Reader quizzes, please use their AR Bookfinder website.
Further guidance and information about using Accelerated Reader at home can be found here.
