Incredible Instructions Day

Today Year 5 had an exciting Instructions Day to kick start their writing to inform unit this term. They each brought in an item from home that had instructions. They first familiarized themselves with a partners item using the instructions, whilst doing so they identified features of an instruction text and what made instructions good/ bad as a reader. They then had a go at writing a new set of instructions for an item and then had a go at following each others instructions.

We learnt lots about how to make instructions clear and easy to follow, we are now looking forward to applying this to our writing linked to Space throughout the next few weeks.
