Reading is a skill and, as with every skill , it requires not just instruction but practice. We at OPA successfully co-ordinate a reading programme called Accelerated Reading. Students get to take a star reading test four times a year where students are guided to the correct level books. Independent reading is encouraged for the stronger students. Some students may struggle with reading, so these are supported in their reading classes and in interventions. Students are encouraged to read their books and complete a short quiz which gives the students a visible result and points. The most important factor in the Accelerated reading growth is good comprehension.
