Grampound Road Village CE School

Reading

This term, we are reading Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" every lunchtime as part of our Potions project. Independent reading occurs on Monday and Thursday mornings. We will also hear some children read individually during these times. Guided Reading takes place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. We are reading Roald Dahl's "George's Marvellous Medicine" and answering VIPERS style questions on the chapters that we read together each week. We also look at non-fiction texts related to our topic each Friday.
 
Please find below links to Accelerated Reader quizzes, their "Book Finder" facility and various online E-books. Also, please look at the Reading at Home page on this website.
 
We use "VIPERS" when we are reading.
