In Writing this week the children are learning all about instructions. Over the past half term in PSHE, the children have been discussing what it means to be a good friend and designing their own 'Friendship Soup' with ingredients such as honesty, laughter and forgiveness! This helped the children to reflect upon their own friendships and what they are putting in to them.
In order to link with our learning in Writing, the children followed ingredients to make a version of Friendship Soup. This also gave the children the opportunity to measure volume practically as they worked in groups to follow the recipe. They had to read the instructions carefully, take turns and work as a team. By the end of the lesson, the children could recognise several different features of instructional texts.
