Our reading sessions follow the same format as those in school -  each week you will have a text which I will read aloud, you will have vocabulary to discover the definitions of and 3 sets of VIPERS questions to answer (full sentences please!).

Video to introduce the reading this week

Still image for this video

Monday 18th January

Watch the video of me reading through the text. When you have finished watching the video, read the text again for yourself - this time write down any unfamiliar vocabulary. Choose 6 of these words, look them up in a dictionary and write down the defintions.

Tuesday 19th January

Read through the Apartheid Life text again, or rewatch the video, and answer the VIPERS questions.

Wednesday 20th January

Friday 22nd January

Watch the video above which explains reading for pleasure. This is an interactive video, and you will need a pen and a notebook/paper. 


Once the video has finished, spend 20 minutes quietly reading a book or comic of your choice.
