Developing Literacy & Reading

Accelerated Reader

The Accelerated Reading scheme at City Academy Norwich motivates students to read and encourages friendly competition both in classes and across the year group. As of September Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 students are taking part. Students take a test at the beginning of term to determine their reading comprehension level, and then choose from a wide selection of suitable books to enjoy. Once they have read the book, they then use an iPad to take a reading comprehension quiz and are allocated points according to the book's difficulty, length and their percentage of correct answers.
