Our WJS Reading Club

We have a rather unique way of teaching children to read with very successful results. We teach reading skills through our Reading Club.

Throughout the school, from Years 3 – 6, all classes encourage a love of reading through studying a range of genres.

Teachers deliver high quality, whole-class teaching at an appropriate level for the children in their group. This sessions occur three times a week with each session lasting 40 minutes. These sessions focus on an aspect of VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval, sequence or summarise) to ensure children learn a range of reading skills.

These lessons are taught in addition to our daily English lessons.
