This week in Year 1 we are exploring Instructional texts! We launched this topic, by looking at a range of instructional texts such as manuals, posters, recipes in cook books and excepts from art and craft books. We know that instructions are very important because, they tell us what to do.
First, we gave Mrs O instructions on ‘How to make a jam sandwich’.
Next, we ordered a set of instructions on ‘How to play Snakes and Ladders’.
Then, we explored the features of instructional texts such as- title, picture, a list of what you need and instructions written with time words and imperative verbs (bossy words).
After that, we played ‘Snakes and Ladders’ in groups of 4.
Finally, we wrote a set of instructions on ‘How to play Snakes and Ladders’.
What an exciting week we’ve had!
