This term we will be reading The Firework Maker's Daughter by Phillip Pullman
In school we use the "VIPERS" approach. At the bottom of this page there is a useful document of question prompts to help support your child's reading comprehension at home.
Reading at Home
We encourage children to become independent in their book choices and develop a love for reading. With this in mind, they may bring home a book they have previously read. This could be because they have enjoyed it or simply forgotten they have had it before! It is good practise for children to re-read books to build up their fluency and understanding.
Due to COVID-19, books are sent home on a Monday, children should then bring them in on the Friday. They will be left in their individual trays over the weekend and changed individually the following Monday.
Children should read every day. This could be with an adult, older sibling or independently. Children should be asked questions about what they have read to ensure they have a good comprehension of the text. You can use the VIPERS question prompts that we use in school to help create questions.
Please write in their reading record and adults will respond where needed should you have any reading related questions.
Please also record any other reading opportunities children have engaged with at home. This may include texts such as reading a favourite book of their own, comics, newspapers or recipes. The possibilities are endless!
If you would like further reading materials, please use the following log in information to access books via Oxford Owls or access even more great reading through Get Epic.
