How to wash a Woolly Mammoth

This week we will be using this book to write our own set of instructions for 'How to wash a Woolly Mammoth'

How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

Monday 8th February

In today's lesson, we are going to have a closer look at all the features that make up a set of instructions.

 

Your first task is to watch the video of the lesson created by Mrs Bennett. Once you have watched this, I would like for you to go on a features hunt. Can you find the following features in the instructions?

 

  1. Is there a Title that shows us what the text is about?
  2. Is there subheadings - equipment/method etc?
  3. Can you identify the introductory paragraph and spot all the rhetorical questions?
  4. Is there a clear list of equipment or ingredients?
  5. Are their simple steps with numbers or bullet points?
  6. Can you find all the imperative verbs (bossy verbs)
  7. Can you find the adverbs that show how the imperative verb should be done?
  8. Is the instructions written in the correct chronological order?
  9. Are there any diagrams or illustrations?
  10. Can you identify the closing statement/paragraph that shows what has been achieved?

 

Annotate the instructions so we can see where you have found some of these features.

Re-watch the video (if needed) from the link above and really think about the story.

 

THINK: 

  • What skills have you learned so far? 
  • How can improve the beginning of your sentences using the grid of sentence starters? Make sure that you don't begin with 'The' and 'A'.

 

Watch the video of Mrs Bennett teaching you all about Adverbials and use the grid to help you start your sentences in the most interesting way possible.  Remember to use commas to take a breath in your sentences and straight after a frontal adverb (number 4 on your grid/-ly words).

 

Complete your sentences on the worksheet below and REMEMBER to up-level your sentences using adjectives and adverbs.  Think about how you might try and use some conjunctions in your work.
