For children on the school reading scheme, we offer books that are decodable using their phonics learning. For free readers, there are a variety of fiction and non-fiction books available.
Please try to listen to your child read some of their school book at least three times each week. If you are able, take time to discuss the text, focusing on VIPERS skills which we use in school:
Vocabulary - discuss meanings of unfamiliar words;
Inference - use clues to discuss events or characters;
Predict - discuss what children think might happen next;
Explain - discuss why has the author made certain choices;
Retrieve - find information directly from the text;
Sequence - order events from the text.
