Reading in Key Stage 2

In Key Stage 2, we build upon children's reading skills by teaching them as a whole class. 


Each week brings a new text for the children to explore and practise their comprehension skills. On Mondays, we explore the text and practise our prediction skills. On Tuesdays we focus on vocabulary to help us understand the text more. On Wednesday, we ask questions about the text so on Thursday, we can practise all of our comprehension skills.


In class, our comprehension skills are known as VIPERS.

V - Vocabulary

I - Inference

P - Prediction

E - Explain 

R - Retrieve 

S - Summarise 


Reading for Pleasure 

We dedicate our Friday reading lessons to Reading for Pleasure. We play games in class, produce art work and drawings based on books we enjoy and sometime we simply sit and enjoy a good book!
