Today I would like you to write the introduction to a set of instructions. As you know, instructions tell us how do to something. There are many different types of instructions. Some examples include:
•how to play a game;
•how to make or build something;
•how to repair something;
•or how to look after/care for something
I thought some of you might like to decide for yourself what your instructions are going to be about. If you would rather magpie an idea, that is absolutely fine too.
You could write instructions about:
- How to care for a hippopotamus
- How to trap a unicorn
- Vanilla sponge recipe
- How to tame a dragon
- How to wash your hands properly
- How to make a jam sandwich
An introduction explains what the end result will be (what the instructions will help the reader to do). This will usually include questions to engage the reader. Please have a go at writing your own introduction in your exercise book.
An example of an introduction.

Your spellings this week are:
Using your finger, write them on the back of a family member. They are to write down the letters you are spelling out on some paper (you could use your exercise book) to check you are spelling them correctly.
I would like you to complete a 60 second read titled ‘Great Galapagos'. You will find this in your pack. Please read the text and identify the key information to answer each question.
