Year 3 learn about instruction texts

Elmhurst School for Boys

25th November 2016 | Key Stage 2

The boys have looked at instructions found at home, for different purposes and followed instructions for making a pop up card. They have compared different instructions to find out what makes them easy to follow and effective.

After learning about how the Roman’s built their roads, they followed instructions to make an edible Roman road, and identified the important features of the instructions.

This week the boys will be writing instructions for ‘how to become a gladiator’. They enjoyed playing the game at http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/interactive/games/gladiator/index_embed.shtml
