John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

Week 2



Instruction writing

This week I would like you to continue to work on writing instructions.  We all follow instructions everyday and they play an important part in our daily lives. 

I would like you to;

1)  Work through the two powerpoints below which will tell you how to write a successful set of instructions completing the activities as they appear.

2)  Watch the short video about a girl called Nana who lives in Nairobi, Kenya.  The short film will take you through her typical day as she goes about daily business just like you.  Whilst watching the film can you make a list, in order, of the things that she does?  What does she do that is different to you and what is the same?  Perhaps you could write a list of your day and compare?

3)  Now that you have worked through the powerpoints and watched the film clip I would like you to write a set of instructions for Nana.  Perhaps your instructions might be about getting the breakfast ready?  Or perhaps it might be about what she might do if she came with you to John Clifford for the day?  Remember to include those bossy (imperative) verbs!

4)  Perhaps once you have completed your writing you might want to share it with us all on the Willow class blog.
