Year 4 explain how to …

This week Year 4 have been working hard to improve their writing skills. They have been learning how to write an explanation text.

First they thought of a topic that they felt they knew a lot about. Then they created spider diagrams to record all of their interesting ideas.


The children organised these ideas into a planning grid, adding helpful time words and conjunctions they could use to link ideas together.


On Wednesday, they began their explanation texts by writing an introduction.


Over the final two days, the children continued to write the rest of the piece detailing how to look after pets, how to look after their hair and how to keep fit to name a few topics.


The result has been some super explanation texts. We have been very pleased with their efforts and with how many of the children listened to advice  and improved their work. Well done Year 4. You are awesome!
