The SCWA Library is a fun and busy place to hang out and is open to students at break and lunchtimes. With themed displays, bean-bags and comfy armchairs it’s a great place to ‘lose yourself’ in a book. There are competitions to enter, rewards to be won and achievements to celebrate.
We have a wealth of revision resources in all subject areas and the bank of computers provide students with the opportunity to keep up with current affairs or research topics for homework and revision.
Here at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy we run a reading programme called Accelerated Reader. This is an on-line programme that is available to all Year 7&8 classes. Students start by taking an on-line ’Star Reading Test’, which then gives a ZPD (Zone of Proximal Development), and also indicates a reading age for the student. Library books have been colour coded to match zonal ranges. Students can then choose books according to their ZPD with ease – there are currently 3,735 books available in the AR section to which we are constantly adding.
