Explanation Texts

This week we have been looking at explanation texts. We have learnt how there can be a wide range of topics for an explanation. We have also learnt about the structure of an Explanation text

  • General Statement
  • Sequential events
  • Concluding Statement

We have read a range of different texts and begun writing an explanation.

Below are some posters we created about some of the explanation texts we have read focusing on the structure. As well as our whole class activity where we begun writing about ‘How to eat a particular food’
