Exploring Explanations

This half term, the boys and girls have been reading Until I Met Dudley – How Everyday Things Really Work. They began by reading the little girl’s imaginative explanations of how everyday objects work, before contrasting these with the factual explanations given by Dudley. This week, we have focused on the toaster. The children first identified the features used in the explanation text and discussed the author’s style. They then thoroughly enjoyed making their own toast to see the process in action before ordering the steps needed. Next week, the boys and girls will write their own explanations of how a toaster works.
