Lexia Core5 Reading provides a structured approach to the critical areas of reading. The program creates personalised learning paths for children of all abilities but there are also lots of activities that you can do at home to support your child’s reading!

Lexia has a personalised approach and works with your child to target reading skill gaps as they emerge. This is a fun way to help your child’s reading at home as well as a useful way for us to target key areas of reading in school. Teachers timetable specific Lexia sessions into the week to ensure all children are able to access this resource.

Below are some useful documents to help parents use Lexia at home.

Accelerated Reader

Accelerated Reader (AR) is a reading program that helps support and monitor
children’s reading practice. We are fortunate to have such a large library and choice of books at Jewell Academy and children are able to select a book at their level and read it at their own pace. When finished, your child takes a short online quiz to measure how much of the book they understood.

How can I help my child become a better reader?
• Make time for them to read at home. Children need to read for at least 20 minutes every day to improve their reading ability.
• Encourage your child to read; discuss books, asking questions about what they have read; and visit your local library.
• Find suitable books for your child at www.arbookfind.co.uk Use the Search function to look for specific titles or topics, or go to Advanced Search to browse for books within your child’s ZPD and interest level.
• To find out more about your child’s reading progress, visit Home Connect. This will allow you to track your child’s progress towards their targets and to view your child’s reading history.
