Learning Together, Growing Stronger.


In Year 4 we continue to learn and enhance our VIPERS reading skills, which are first introduced in Nursery. There are six skills and we develop these in our daily reading session, as well as fluency. We read a range of text types and they are often linked to current affairs or our foundation subjects.



We also read through a variety of different activities.


  • Our English lessons are related to a class novel. After reading a section from our class novel, we either answer 'VIPER' comprehension questions or use our reading to enhance our writing sessions.
  • Throughout the week, children may have an opportunity to read 1:1 with an adult in class. 
  • At the end of the day, we read for pleasure. We are able to enjoy a story read by our class teacher.



This half term we will be reading the book 'Anisha, Accidental Detective' by Serena Patel as a text to help support and inspire our writing. We read an extract from the book to start our learning sequence and pick out grammatical features to support our writing.
