By the end of January, we had two! How many more can we get before the end of the school year? It’s all up to you!
Word Millionaire awards are presented to children who have read a million words since their Accelerated Reader journey started in September. The system keeps track of how many words are in each book they read and it cleverly tots them all up, notifying staff when the landmark amount has been reached.
You can help your child by making sure that they read their AR book every night, and that they bring it into school every day. Each child is given the opportunity to read their book during the course of the day, and they all get the chance to read with the class teacher at least once a week.
Awards for 250,000 words are also available in Key Stage 1.
