Team DB have continued to read Dracula throughout the second part of the Autumn term, written by Bram Stoker. We have focussed on the vocabulary used within the text in order to support our understanding of the novel. The story also lent itself well to other VIPERS elements, allowing us to work on our retrieval skills as well as looking how to predict what may happen next, using our inference skills to help us make a sensible guess and using our knowledge about what we have read. We are also beginning to use stem sentence responses when answering questions about the text and this is something that Team DB will be continuing to focus upon in the Spring term. We also briefly touched on summarising and this is something we will be continuing with at other points in the year. As part of our GASP approach to writing, we have also engaged in the reading of non-fictional texts (such as newspapers) as well as diary extracts to help develop our understanding of different text types and support us with the analysis of the feature of each genre.
