An Example of Continuous Provision in Y2



The children are enrolled on Accelerated Reader which provides comprehension quizzes.  The results of these can be viewed at home.

Children use a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, and you to share information about children's progress in Accelerated Reader.  You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. Children have been given their user names and passwords.  To log in to Renaissance Home Connect Website:

I have had a couple of questions about logging on from home.  First - this is definitely possible, they can do quizzes and children can also use myON e-book library and daily myON News service - freely available for the duration of the closures. It will allow pupils to access at home, on tablet and laptop, an e-library of over 7000 books. Children can browse through books on myON. Once they have read the book, they can then log into your schools Renaissance site and click the Accelerated Reader tile. They can then search for the book and take a quiz. Please note that not all books on myON are quizzed.
