Autumn 2

Week 1-Instructions

 

This week we followed instructions to plant bulbs. We then used our experience to identify key features of a set of instructions such as;

  • headings
  • subheadings
  • what you need
  • imperative verbs
  • adverbs
  • bullet points/numbers
  • time connectives

We then went onto discussing why it is important to write instructions in chronological order.

 

Consolidate your learning by following a set of instructions to make or bake at home.
