Hello Readers in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6, 

 

I hope you are still reading everyday as part of your home-schooling routine. Great news ... you can now log onto Accelerated Reader and take reading and vocabulary tests at home. You will need to login at this URL/web address so type this into the web address bar:  

 

https://ukhosted4.renlearn.co.uk/1893647 (currently unavailable) 

You should have books from school that you can read and quiz. If you have read them all, you can access more books from these locations and see if they are AR books and quiz them. You can even listen to books and quiz on those!  

 

Logon onto: https://readon.myon.co.uk/ and access the thousands of different titles available, both fiction and non-fiction. Read the books online or listen to them and complete the different activities on the side. Then don’t forget to take a quiz for the same book on AR. 

 

We will look at what you have been reading and make a top 10 word count per week for each year group. Can you get your name on the leader board? 

 

Try accessing these resources to ensure you have loads of books to read and listen to. 

 

Keep on reading!
