Instructions

This week we have been looking at instructional writing.

First we followed a set of instructions to make some shortbread biscuits for the queen. We had to taste test them of course! They were delicious!

We also ordered a set of instructions and added verbs and adverbs to describe how to do it.

We then wrote a set of instructions on how to make a clay coin.

 

Writing letters

We have recently found a pen pal called Annie. She has been learning about the Royal family in Belgium and saw that we had been learning about the Queen of England. She wanted to know more about our Royal family so we have been very busy writing letters to Annie to share with her what we have learnt about the Queen and her family. 

 

By Royal Appointment

The children all looked fabulous in their outfits.

The day began with a visit from Her Majesty The Queen. The children greeted her with a bow or a curtsy before asking her lots of great questions.

They then participated in a range of activities including, making a shield, designing a crown, building a Lego castle, drawing a portrait of the Queen and making a Jam sandwich.

In the afternoon they enjoyed twirling their partners around in a dance.
