Core concepts:

  • The idea here is to get the children to work out the gist of a text. It does not really matter what they are making - milkshakes, omelettes, sandwiches etc. as the focus is the type of text and following instructions within the theme of food.

  • It would be a good opportunity to practise dictionary skills.
  • Bonus:
    You could focus on 'the imperative' if you feel your class are ready for this, but this is extra to what you need to cover and is not part of the Hampshire suggested minimum attainment for Year 6
