AR and Mathletics reminder

We have received several questions about using Mathletics and AR at home so here is a post we shared a few weeks ago...


AR

Pupils from year 2 in IPACA have access to Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader is an online reading program. Students select and read books of their choice and take multiple choice tests when they finish reading.

From Easter pupils can access AR at home and take reading quizzes. We would encourage students to take quizzes on their own.

AR can be found at: https://ukhosted40.renlearn.co.uk/2236801/

A great feature AR offers is a parent email service. Parents, carers or family members can sign up for email alerts. Every time your child takes a quiz in school or at home you will receive an email telling  you what book your child has read and what percentage they got correct.

To access AR parent emails follow this link. Your children will be coming home with their log in cards over Easter. You will need their username and password to activate parent emails (most children already know this)

We have set all pupils a challenge, to read 2 books with a test score of 85% and over during the Easter holidays.

Maths

We have seen some absolutely fantastic Mathletics work over the last term in both West Base and West 2. Pupils are still enjoying collecting their many certificates and we see Gold badges given out in celebration assembly most weeks - fantastic work.

All pupils have a mathletics log in (again this will be coming home over Easter if you child doesn't know theirs). We have seen some brilliant progress from those pupils who consistently 'play' mathletics at home every week.

Mathletics is available as an app on any tablet or through the website: http://www.mathletics.co.uk

Mathletics also offer a parents email. You Will receive a weekly email informing you of your child's progress in mathletics. To access this follow this link: http://west.core.mathletics.com/ParentCentreService-R83/ParentRegistration.aspx

A Mathletics challenge has been set over the Easter holidays. Can our pupils 'win' 2 mathletics certificates over the holidays?
