Explanitory texts
This selection includes an explanatory text about how a torch works, pictures of torches, features poster, vocabulary poster and a planning frame. This could be used as a starting point for a unit of work, to show the order and progression of how to write a text. Children should be able to then research, take notes, discuss, plan and write their own text and be able to present it in an interesting way to others. There is a selection of photographs, but ideally children should be able to use their own.
