Reading in Year 2:
In KS1 at Alresford, children read each week with an adult on a 1:1 basis. Our Year 2 reading books are banded and when a child has progressed through them, they become a free reader and can choose books from the library. We also follow VIPERS.
What is VIPERS I hear you ask...
VIPERS is an acronym to aid the recall of the 6 reading domains as part of the UK’s reading curriculum. 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;
- Sequence or Summarise
It is so important that children read regularly at home as well as at school. We really do appreciate your support in this matter. Below are some tips to support your child's reading at home.
