WALT: understand what we use instructions for.


The next 2 weeks will see us concentrating on instructional writing.  As a starter, try to answer the questions below.  You will find the answers in the file found in Resources.


  • Why and when do we use instructions?
  • What are instructions?
  • Give examples of what type of instructions are used.


Today you will watch a Sesame Street clip in which the Cookie Monster wants an egg sandwich just like his friend.  Here is the link:


Watch this clip and then write down why you think the Cookie Monster couldn't make the sandwich in the correct way. What would you have done differently to make the sandwich?


There is also a powerpoint in Resources for you to look through.  In it, there are different examples of instructions and also links to a drawing website and LEGO building website in which you can follow instructions.
