Reading in Year 5
Vipers is a range of reading prompts based on the 2016 reading content domains found in the National Curriculum Test Framework documents which can be found online here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/keystage-2-english-reading-test-framework
For more information click on the image the reading VIPER to see what each letter stands for an for some example questions which could be used.
In Year 5 we discuss the reading VIPERS daily, therefore all children should be aware of what the letters stand for and be familiar with the questioning we use. The VIPERS are a really useful tool to use with images, when reading a text and watching video clips.
Can you be a ninja and sneak our WOD into your writing?
In Year 5 we also encourage all of our children to be Vocabulary Ninjas! Everyday your child will be given a WOD (word of the day). Their challenge is to use this word appropriately in their writing and in everyday conversations.
There are now lots of fun games to help you develop your ninja vocabulary skills and become a grand master. Click the picture below to play.
