Reading VIPERS

At Lakeside Primary we use reading VIPERS to help pupils understand how to approach answering reading questions.

VIPERS is an acronym which stands for Vocabulary, Infer, Predict, Explain, Retrieve and Sequence (Key Stage One) or Summarise (Key Stage Two).

The following pages explain how this concept works and gives you ideas for how each type of question might look for pupils.
