WALT: identify the features of a set of instructions.  THIS WILL BE OUR ZOOM LESSON FOR THIS WEEK.


Today we will be looking at what features are needed in a set of instructions.  Can you remember what ‘feature’ means?  A feature is something which is found in all types of instruction text; we have done this several times previously this year with other types of text.


For example, a feature of Newspaper Reports is the Headline.  In Non-Chronological Reports, a feature is Fact not Opinion and in a Recount, a feature is that it is written in the Past Tense.  


Your tasks today need you to read a set of instructions on 'How to make a cup of tea.  You will find the instructions in Resources.  Read through the instructions and write down a list of features you think you can see.


Once you have written down your list, you can look at the other file in Resources which gives you a list of the features needed in a set of instructions.  After looking at these, your second task is to go back to 'How to make a cup of tea' and highlight the features that you can find.  For example, 'How to make a cup of tea' is the Title of the instructions.


You will find the answers in the Answers file in Resources.
