Accelerated Reader Awards

26th Jun 2019

*** Accelerated Reader Awards ***

Our last accreditation awards of the school year took place this morning and we were delighted to see Fionn, Kieva, Louis, Cian and Emily attain the next level in their AR journey. Two of our P7 leavers also received certificates, namely Damien and Joshua (both absent from photo).

Accelerated Reader is a huge part of our literacy programme in St Joseph’s. It has been a massive benefit to our pupils and everyone is fully engaged in it.


Here are some very interesting year end figures which relate to our P4, P5, P6 and P7 classes and their involvement in the AR programme:

- 1132 books were read.

- 5,379,009 words were read.

- Enchanted Wood (Enid Blyton), Back-to-Front Benjy (Dick King-Smith), The Big Little Dinosaur (Martin Waddell), Horrid Henry (Francesca Simon), Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Jeff Kinney), Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling) and Timmy Failure (Stephan Pastis) were among the children’s favourite books.
