Some children are using the Accelerated Reader scheme, where children can quiz on each book that they finish to check their understanding. Children accumulate points for passing quizzes and a word count for the number of words read. Look out for our 'Star Readers' scoreboard in class where we update the children with the most books read, most points and most words read! If a child becomes a 'millionaire', where they have read 1 million words, they receive a prize!
