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 explanation).
Based on the video write your own ‘steps to success’ for writing an explanation text. Compare your list with the checklist in resources.
For a more detailed understanding of an explanation text look through today’s PowerPoint (or PDF version if you don't have PowerPoint).
Taking both your introduction 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.
