In reading, Team JD have worked really hard to analyse fiction texts. We have linked our reading to our topic of Wombwell and Whitby and used the fictional text of Bram Stoker’s Dracula to support our understanding of the coastal town of Whitby. Vocabulary, retrieval and prediction have been our key VIPERS focus throughout this half term. As a class, we have spent time every week analysing Dracula and other similar readings. Using images and actions, we have developed an understanding of unfamiliar words, allowing children to explain the meaning of new vocabulary and then being able to use these in our writing. We have then built upon our fluency skills through echo reading sessions led by Mr Davison. Team JD have improved their fluency and confidence in reading their work aloud to an audience. We have continued to work on comprehension questions in which the children have developed a clear procedure for scanning and locating information, reading the question and ultimately creating a successful response.
