The importance of instruction 5AC
Our challenge was to follow some instructions on ‘how to make a hang glider’ and ‘how to tie a reef knot’. After creating these, we looked at how the language helped guide and direct us through the instructions step by step. We were then able to use imperative (bossy) verbs and modal verbs (to express necessity) to write instructions for the rollercoasters we created.
Squirrel activity centre 5AC
We received a letter from the squirrel preservation society who requested us to design an activity centre for the squirrels in the local area. We created some designs and discussed how this will be beneficial to both the squirrels and to people in the community.
Newspaper journalists 5AC
We looked at a wide range of newspapers and identified which features are required to create a successful article. We then used this as inspiration to create our own.
The great debate 5AC
We have been learning about the great plague during medieval England. As a class, we had to decide whether or not we would have kept the gates to our town open or closed.
