Good morning Key Stage 1. Today we are going to be writing a set of instructions. Remember to think about all of the things we have already done in this series of learning to make sure they are super clear and easy to follow!
Here is a success criteria to follow. How many can you include?
Below are a few ideas for your set of instructions:
REMEMBER Try your best to make this your BEST writing and keep trying with your beautiful handwriting! We are so proud of how gorgeous your books are looking!
Quick Sentence Practice.
When writing sentences it is so important to remember your capital letters and full stops. So we thought you could practice them using Roy the Zebra.
Can you help Zara and Zed put capital letters in their sentences?
Good morning Key Stage 1. Let's have some fun today!
The most important part about instructions is that they are clear and easy to follow so today we are going to test out how good you are at giving instructions.
You will need a grown-up or a brother or sister to help you with this activity.
Have a go at one of the following activities and then give each other feedback on how good your verbal instructions were.
To make our instructions really clear to follow, we will need to use adverbs to show the reader how to do the action. This is because an adverb describes how we 'do' a verb (a doing word).
We could improve the instruction below by adding an adverb:
Spread the jam.
Carefully spread the jam.
In your book, copy each instruction below, then improve it underneath by adding in an adverb. You might want to write the adverb in a different colour like me!
Adverbs that might help:
carefully slowly immediately quickly quietly gently
Can you add in a conjunction? What about an adjective?
We are going to be learning about instructions! To remind us what we need to include in the perfect set of instructions, watch the video below. Be prepared...the silly chef isn't very good at following instructions!
When you have finished watching the instructions, create a success criteria in your book for the perfect set of instructions. What should they include?
Challenge: Why not write a clear set of instructions for the chef so he doesn't make the same mistake again. Remember, you can watch the video as many times as you want!
