This week the Year 2 children have worked incredibly hard investigating instructions. They played barrier games, where they had to give clear instructions to their partner, and then listen carefully to the instructions given to them. They also had to listen carefully to instructions during a drawing and colouring game, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The children used their knowledge of features of instructional texts to sequence a jumbled set of instructions for ‘How to Wash Your Hands’. Finally, they wrote their own set of instructions for making chocolate apples, and used lots of features such as bossy verbs, titles, subheadings and time connectives. What a busy, productive week! The children are now instruction experts!
