VIPERS (Reading Lessons)

At St Pius X we teach whole class reading lessons four afternoons a week, as well as an extended reading session once a week in an English lesson, which focuses on written evidence. Each class follows the VIPERS format during the reading lessons. We believe that reading VIPERS improves key reading skills. VIPERS allow children to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of:

Vocabulary 

Inference

Predicting

Explanations 

Retrieval 

Summarizing
