We live for books

Posted on: 14/12/2015

Well done to everyone who has made such brilliant progress with reading this year. Years 7 and 8 take part in the Accelerated Reader (AR) programme from Renaissance Learning.  The programme is targeted to help us monitor students' independent reading.  Students choose a book at their own level and read it at their own pace. Once finished, students take a short quiz about the book on the computer. Passing the quiz is an indication that they have understood what they have read and gives both students, staff and parents immediate feedback based on their quiz results. At GTS we also honour students with reward points which go towards their personal recognition awards as well as towards their House points. 

So far this year there have been eleven Year 8 pupils and nineteen Year 7 students recognised on the "You're A star" board in the library.  These students have achieved 100% in more than one Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader book quiz.  Please encourage more Year 7 & 8 pupils to take a quiz on a book they have read.
