In year 3 we will be teaching reading following the V.I.P.E.R. acronym. This stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation and Retrieval – hopefully this sounds less scary than a poisonous snake. Each week we would like you to focus on a different VIPER element when listening to your child read.

Please download the attachment below for some example questions to support your child with their reading.
