Reading Plus Awards - 24/05/2018

Congratulations to the Year 7 Reading Plus groups, who through hard work and dedication, have been awarded their Level A and Level B status in the Reading Plus Program. 

Having been recently introduced, Reading Plus is already proving to be a hit with the students. The program offers an online reading support curriculum for students allowing them to read interdisciplinary, informational or literary texts and receive specialised academic vocabulary and reading comprehension instruction while teachers monitor their progress and performance. 

As well as running Reading Plus groups, we also encourage students to log in and continue their development at home. We also offer an afterschool Reading Plus Club which runs each day from 3:00pm to 4:00pm and is open to all years. Come along and give it a go! 

Mrs Banks said: “Reading Plus is an amazing program that is individually tailored to meet the needs of the students whilst giving them the ability to monitor their own progress. It has been rewarding to see the students so enthused and dedicated in continuing to develop their skills, which will benefit them throughout all curriculum areas.” 

Charlie Williams, a student at the Academy, commented: “I love Reading Plus because I enjoy competing against myself to improve my reading scores each week. It also helps with my reading in lesson and makes me feel more confident in all of my lessons.” 

Maisie Drew added: “Reading Plus is an enjoyable program and I can’t believe how much I’ve progressed already! I use it in school, at home and I have just joined the afterschool club. It’s helped me in all of my lessons because I can understand more. It’s also given me a boost in confidence to get more involved in lessons.”
