Over the next two weeks, Year 3 will be exploring and investigating instructional texts. They will identify the features and purpose of instructional texts by looking at a variety of different sources. They will understand the common grammatical features that are used in instructional texts and apply these to write their own set of instructions. This topic also has links with healthy eating and cooking and nutrition.
