Silverwood School Phonics Assessment Framework
Phonics and Reading
All pupils at Silverwood School will access either Phonics or Guided Reading sessions as part of the literacy curriculum.
At Silverwood School we use the VIPERS framework as a key element of our literacy curriculum. VIPERS is an acronym to aid the recall of the six key areas which we feel pupils need to know and understand in order to improve their comprehension of texts.
100 Books to Read Before You Leave Silverwood
We have 100 fiction books that we recommend all our pupils experience/ read before they leave us. These are books voted for and compiled by The Times Educational Supplement and the National Association for the Teaching of English. The books are suitable for children of all ages and include old and new, classics and recently published stories.
When pupils have a secure knowledge of phonics they will receive spellings to practice in school and at home. Below is the progression document detailing the lists.
