How else can we travel in the sky? .... Aeroplane!

This week have a go at writing some instructions for making a paper Aeroplane.

Monday: Remember instructions have specific features, use the powerpoint to recap the features of instructions and have a go at following some instructions yourself.

Tuesday: Plan the instructions that you will write - use the powerpoint to help guide you on what to do.

Wednesday: Begin to write your instructions. Can you use a question as your title?

Remember to include an opening sentence, try to include a conjunction in your opening sentence.

e.g. These simple instructions tell you how to create a beautiful plastic turtle that is made from a recycled bottle. 

Write your list of things you will need (remember a sub heading) - be careful with your spelling and remember to use your phonics skills.

Thursday: Begin to write your step-by-step instructions including a sub heading. Don't forgot to use all the features of instructional writing. Try to include at least three different conjunctions in your writing, some effective adjectives and challenge yourself to include some adverbs.

Friday: Continue with your instructions and try to include a closing statement. e.g. If you have followed these instructions carefully you will have successfully created an attractive plastic turtle.

Please share your finished instructions via our twitter account @whistonJandI or email them to school. I'd love to see your writing and what you've been up to! :)
