PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A two-week unit of work for Years 3/4 (2nd/3rd Grade) based on the book 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth', with a focus on instructional texts.

Created for the 2014 National Curriculum, this unit gives children the opportunity to understand the features of instructions as a text type. In the first week, children will engage with the text How to Wash Woolly Mammoth through research, a hands-on toy washing challenge and the opportunity to create their own ‘Woolly Mammoth Cleaning Kit’. They will become familiar with the text type of instructions by following instructions to make their own mammoth models and identifying features of the text. There is also a grammar focus on using prepositions and imperative verbs.

In the second week, pupils will use drama to develop ideas and extend their vocabulary. They will then plan their own set of instructions about washing a woolly mammoth and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final written outcome.

The literacy objectives covered in this unit are:

To retrieve and record information from non-fiction
