Through Whole Class Reading from Year 2 - 6, pupils are introduced to the Reading VIPERS (Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Sequencing / Summarising).  This consistent approach throughout school enables pupils to become secure in each skill as they are introduced and further consolidated. Through Whole Class Reading lessons, pupils are exposed to a wide variety of texts taken from a range of sources including whole books, excerpts, newspapers and magazines as well as video and picture stimuli.
