Listen carefully

This week were are going to look at non-fiction writing.


This is something you have already looked at in Year 1, so watch this video to remind yourself what instructions are used for. Click on the picture below.


Listen carefully

Let's have a look at an example together:

This is useful because it has these features:

  • a clear title
  • a list of ingredients ( the things I need to make the smoothie)
  • numbered steps to follow in order
  • imperative verbs (to tell me what I need to do)


To make it better, I would add a list of items I need from the kitchen like a mixer, bowl, tablespoon and glass.


Now it's your turn. Look at the next example of instructional writing. Then complete the 2Do on Purple Mash by making a list of features that you can see that make it useful to follow.
