Your child’s planner is your first point of contact for any queries about their reading age or book level (ZPD).


How does the school determine students’ reading level?
Heartlands uses a STAR Reading™ test taken 3 times a year.

What should my child’s reading age be?
Easy – How old are they?

If their reading age is below their chronological age – they need to catch up.

What is a Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD)?
ZPD is the range of books that will challenge a student without causing frustration or loss of motivation.

Their ZPD will improve the more they read.
