Expanded Noun Phrases

 

 

Watch the video above to remind yourselves what an expanded noun phrase is- make sure you know what adjectives and determiners are too! Complete the activity that is attached below. Bronze, silver and gold are on the same document. Have a look at them before choosing your level of challenge- you never know, you might fancy a challenge!

Friday

 

Instructional Writing 

 

I have attached two WAGOLLs below for you- Rain Gauge Instructions and Immortality Potion. Have a look through them and identify specific language features relevant to instructional writing:

 

a title

an introduction 

bullet points or numbers

subheadings

conclusion 

time conjunctions

imperative verbs

fronted adverbials 

diagrams

 

Once you have identified the target features in those texts, have a go at following one of them (this could be done out of English time too!). Once you have done this, have a think about these questions:

How good are the instructions?

Did everything go to plan? 

What would you change about the instructions?
