Transition for September 2017 - Reading Challenge

In conjunction with English lessons, students take part in the School's Accelerated Reading Programme.

During the two transition days in July (Tuesday, 4 July and Wednesday, 5 July), students will be assessed so we know their reading ages before they start with us.  We will also be using information provided by their primary school so that we can effectively support our students from the very first day, across all their subjects.

Each child will receive a diagnostic report which will indicate the level of book they should be reading.  If the diagnostic report is misplaced, please ensure your child is reading a Green Level (which equates to a reading age of 11). 

You are not expected to buy any books, this is just a guide to what your child should be reading in their reading comprehension age range. If you cannot access any of these books then please read any books that are age appropriate for them with lots of discussion about the plot and characters.
