Phonics and Reading

Reading at Woodseaves

We have utilised part of our Covid Catch Up Premium to purchase Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader provides us with online quizzes which children can complete after reading real texts that are matched to their reading ability through assessments and standardised scores. 

If you are a Woodseaves pupil in Class Two or Three you can log on at home to complete book quizzes by clicking HERE. 

If you would like to search for Accelerated Reader books you can do so by clicking HERE.

Our Amazon Wish lists, at Woodseaves we love to read and refresh our book corners! If you would like to help us to do this, we have created a series of Amazon Wish lists which you can use to donate a book straight to the school!
