Friday 26th June

 

LO: To identify the key features of an instruction text.

Look at the 'Example_Instructional Text' which has been uploaded below and also to Purple Mash. This is an example of how to write instructions for 'how to make a model bull'. (Next week, you will be writing instructions on 'how to make a model robot'). 

 

Your task is to identify the key features in the text that show it is an instruction text. 

Remember to look out for how it is presented and organised, what tone it is written in, any any key language/vocabulary that is used.

 

 

You can complete this task by either printing off the example text and highlighting and annotating it, or make a list on paper or on Purple Mash. 

There is a 2Do set on Purple Mash. If you decided to complete the task on paper, remember to close down the task with a note to tell me how you have done it. (You can also send me a photo of your work).
