KS2 Reading VIPERS

After half term, year 5 and 6 English teachers will be setting a ‘VIPERS’ sheet for the Monday reading homework tasks.  These tasks are focused around specific reading skills (Vocabulary – Inference – Prediction – Explain – Retrieve – Summarise), which are linked to the SAT Content Domains.  Your child’s reading progress will improve further if pupils can practise and discuss these skills with you at home as frequently as possible.  We would like the weekly homework session to be completed in the following way please:
1)      Listen to your child read their Renaissance reading book for 10/15 minutes.
2)      Look at the VIPERS sheet which has come home that week.
3)      Work through some or all of the questions on the sheet, in reference to the book your child has read to you.  Should you need some help, there are exemplar, modelled VIPERS sheets on our website in the ‘Pupils’ section, with suggested answers to each question.  These are not exhaustive, but are examples of the sort of response which each question requires.  These modelled sheets refer to an extract of ‘Wind in the Willows’, also on the website. 
4)      Your child will write their answers on the sheet – these can be quite brief – and then hand in the sheet to their English teacher for the homework due date.  There is a comments section for parents also.
