Procedural Writing

The children have been practising their Procedural Writing skills of late.
Procedural Writing is a writing genre where you have to explain how something is done, in a series of sequenced steps i.e. writing step-by-step instructions how to complete a task.

Writing instructions on how to play your favourite game or writing a simple recipe are great ways to practise procedural writing.

Today the children had to type a list of instructions on how to make a cup of tea and how to make a slice of toast. Needless to say, the practical activities of actually doing it, and enjoying a cooled cup of tea and a nice slice of toast, really helped them to understand how important correct sequencing and concise wording is, when it comes to procedural writing.
