Can you feel the force? is our science-led topic to open the autumn term. It is
only a short topic, but it is learning with which we know the children will have fun engaging.

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.
