VOCABULARY SENTENCES

OUR WORD: defence

  • A sentence with 8 words. I found the recipe very difficult to read.
  • A sentence with the word at the beginning Recipe instructions are easier to follow if the ingredients and method are listed separately.
  • A sentence containing a clause. As the clocked ticked on, he wished he had used his father’s recipe for the roast lamb.
  • A question. What might happen if I put more milk in the mixture than recommended in the recipe?

We are learning to interpret and create video texts.

  • Plan for success
  • Show don’t tell
  • Ban the boring bits
  • Call to action
