Reading VIPERS

 

To supplement our work within The Power Of Reading, we use VIPERS from the Literacy Shed. 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. Mechanics of reading (decoding, fluency, prosody) is taught throughout our whole class guided reading sessions.
