Reading support

Please continue to read with your child everyday at home and note down any information in their reading record. The more opportunity children have to read the more they will progress in all their learning. Please keep reading books and reading records in school bags at all times so comments can be added when children are read with in school.


Children will have the opportunity to change their reading records on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.


Please ensure your child always has a reading book and a their reading record so it can be stamped by an adult.

Recommended reads for each key stage


As well as reading fluently children are also expected to understand and answer questions based on what they have read. Attached you can see some suggested question prompts to use at home when you are reading. In school we use VIPERS. VIPERS stands for, vocabulary, inference, predict, explain, retrieve, sequence or summarise. These are all skills we practise within school but it would be great if you could practise at home too!
