English Lessons

WB 22.3.21 - English

 

This week, we wrote some recipes in our English lesson. We began the week by exploring the different features by looking at examples of recipes and finding key features, such as imperative verbs. At the end of the week, we worked with a partner to read our recipes and apply our editing skills. We identified different features and used our purple polishing pens to up-level our writing. Take a look below:
