WALT: Include the features of an explanation text

Watch the video  How to write an explanation - BBC Teach (It has absolutely nothing to do with Ancient Egyptians, but there are many features that we can use for our own explanations).

Based on the video write your own ‘steps to success’ for writing an explanation text.

Compare your explanation features, to the attached features checklist. 

Challenge: For a more detailed understanding of an explanation text look through today’s PowerPoint/ PDF.

Taking both your introduction and conclusion that you wrote yesterday and your answers to Monday’s questions, watch Mrs Dobson’s video and see how to annotate your writing so that it begins to resemble a completed explanation text.
