LO: To create a set of instructions

SC1) I can discuss the features of a set of instructions

SC2) I can use the features to write a set of instructions

SC3) I can ensure somebody else can follow my instructions to make the final product

 Today we are going to be using our knowledge of instruction writing to write our own set of instructions. Before we begin, have a discussion at home with someone or write down the features of a set of instructions.


Look back to the features checklist if you need to. For Today’s task, we would like you to create a set of instructions, using the features, for making a slice of toast (including spreads etc.). After you have created your set of instructions, ask a member of your family to try to follow them. These instructions need to be very clear and tell the reader exactly what to do.


Top tip: I like to pretend I am telling an alien from another planet how to do this who has no idea how to make toast. Include every small detail. Use fronted adverbials at the start of each stage (Firstly, then, next) and make sure your instructions and in clear, numbered steps. Punctuate your sentences correctly too.

If the person you ask to follow is not able to make the toast from your instructions, you may need to rethink your instructions!

Reasoning challenges

1:15 - 2:00


LO: To choose and justify my choices

SC1) I can choose my top 3 games

SC2) I can justify why I have choose these games

SC3) I can enjoy playing games with a member of my family

 Today we would like you to choose your top 3 games you researched yesterday. Over the course of the week, we will be using all 3 of these. We would like you to choose 1 to play today (#1) , 1 to write a set of rules for tomorrow (#2) and 1 to change the rules of on Thursday (#3).

 On your mindmap, choose your top 3. Decide what you are going to do with each game (see above) and write an explanation why you have chosen that game for that reason. See my example below.

 When you have chosen and justified, you may now play the game you chose for #1. Enjoy creating and playing with a member of your family.


2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!
