Here is today’s timetable:
9 - 9.30: Morning Yoga
Lesson 1: Literacy
Instructions tell the reader how to do something like how to cook a meal or how to build a chair. They have to be written clearly so the reader can easily understand each step.
Instructions need to include:
When you write instructions you should:
Read the instructions on the worksheet below about how to wash an elephant then answer the questions.
Either write your answers down on paper, think about them or discuss them with someone at home.
1. What is the title and where can you find it?
2. What information is in the grey box?
3. How do you know what order to carry out the instructions in?
4. What type of word does each instruction start with?
Watch this clip in which presenters Dick and Dom read from George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
Listen carefully to the ingredients George uses to make his grandma’s medicine.
Now, imagine you’re making your own medicine for a horrible grandma.
Make a list of five ingredients that you would use and explain what effect each one would have on grandma.
Don’t forget to say how much to use.
Now write a set of instructions telling other people how they could make your medicine.
Remember to include:
How to improve a horrible grandma
1. First of all, sprinkle two teaspoons of coffee into the pot to give grandma some energy.
Don't forget to use command (bossy) verbs such as mix, stir, add, pour and chop.
Break: Time for another brain break. Go grab yourself a drink and talk to someone about how you’re doing! Remember to wash your hands for 20 seconds if you’re getting something to eat or after going to the toilet!
Joke: Why does a seagull fly over the sea?
Answer: Because if it flew over the bay, it would be a baygull.
If you have any funny jokes to tell us, why not send them to email@example.com so we can share them with everyone?
