Heathrow Primary School, Harmondsworth Lane, Sipson, West Drayton, Middlesex, UB7 0JQ
This term in Literacy we have been focusing on ‘Sports Literacy’ and writing instructions. The children were exposed to many different sports such as American football, athletics and long distance running. One skill the children thoroughly exercised was the 'show not tell' technique, which enabled them to interpret characters' feelings through actions and facial expressions. With instructions, the children used their experience in cooking Cheesy Appleslaw Baguette to write their very own set of detailed instructions explaining their method. Furthermore, the children made cross curricular links with science where they made a model of the Digestive System. They were able to write an informative set of instructions on how to recreate this experiment.
