ENGLISH HEART

READING

Reading is such an important skill and our Y6 expectation is that you read on a daily basis. You are also encouraged to read a variety of genres - look at the reading 'bingo' page in your school jotter - your challenge is to read through all genre types!

Reading diaries will be collected and checked every FRIDAY so it is your responsibility to bring your completed & signed logs into school. Unsigned or late logs (unless due to illness) will not be counted .

Here are some READING LINKS to explore from home!

Reading VIPERS

VIPERS is an anagram to help the recall of the 6 reading areas or skills that children need to develop in order to read well. 

They are the key areas which we feel children need to know and understand in order to improve their comprehension of texts.

VIPERS stands for:

Vocabulary

Inference

Prediction

Explanation

Retrieval

Sequence or Summarise
