Useful Weblinks:

Accelerated Reader:

For Accelerated Reader users, see if the books you are reading are part of the scheme.  Use www.arbookfind.co.uk and log on as a pupil to search for all titles. This is helpful if you are reading a book from home and you would like to see if there is a quiz for it.

Accelerated Reading quizzes can be taken from home using the following link: https://ukhosted2.renlearn.co.uk/2127984/.

For parents who wish to see how well their child is progressing with Accelerated Reader, the Homeconnect website will give you access to your child’s bookshelf.  The site complements the Accelerated Reader scheme that your child uses in school and is a fantastic way to encourage your child’s reading. The website shows you their quiz performance, the points they’ve earned and the book level they are reading. Your child’s usual Accelerated Reader login can be used to access the website.

Newspapers for Schools: Great for searching articles from national and regional newspapers within the last 5 years.
