Reading 2021- 2022


At Our Lady Queen of Peace we use  VIPERS to cover the 6 key domains of the reading curriculum:

These areas allow teachers to question children effectively during reading tasks. Question stems are displayed in each classroom to assist children to determine the key domain when answering questions. 

Comprehensions take place on a weekly using Literacy Shed Comprehension Plus. All comprehensions are staged according to a Lexile score which allows teachers to select suitable comprehensions for their class. The texts are placed in stages as follows:

  • Stage 1 = 200 - 300
  • Stage 2 = 300 - 575
  • Stage 3 = 575 - 750
  • Stage 4 = 750 - 840
  • Stage 5 = 840 - 930
  • Stage 6 = 930+
