Reading and Phonics

The statutory information about Reading and Phonics can be found by clicking the link below:

We use the VIPERS approach to developing Reading Comprehension across school to help the children master their skills in the various domains of comprehension. 

The acronym helps children to remember the different skills they use during comprehension to make sense of texts.  It helps adults in school and at home ensure that they focus on all the various skills of comprehension.

In school comprehension skills are developed through whole class and small group sessions focusing on both verbal and written responses.

Support is available for parents; an information book is sent home at the beginning of the year (copies can be found below) and reminders are included on the weekly homework sheets published on ClassDojo.
