Letter to Y7, 8 & 9 parents/carers - Reading Age test

Dear Parents/Carers

As you know, at St Cuthbert’s, we are always encouraging our students to become avid readers through our Curriculum and through our Accelerated Reading and MyOn Programmes.

In order to help your child progress with reading, they will be doing a reading age test on either Thursday, 28th January 2021 (Years 7 and 9) or Friday, 29th January 2021 (Year 8). This will be, of course, done virtually through Google Classroom.

During your child’s English lessons on their allocated day, their class teacher will meet with them and give them instructions and log in details to enable them to access the test online. Their teacher will then be available for the entire lesson, should there be any technical issues that need to be resolved. In this case, your child will be able to log back into Google Classroom to speak to their teacher should they need to.

We know you will understand the importance of reading and hope you will support us in encouraging your child to log in and take the test on their allocated day.

Many thanks in advance for your support with this.

Yours faithfully

Mrs C Sharples
Second Curriculum Leader for KS3 English
