Explanation Texts

Year 6 have been looking at Explanation Texts and have used the Shirt Machine to help inspire them.

Note: An explanation text is a piece of writing which explains how something works by answering the "how" and the "why" questions and also to explain the processes involved in nature e.g. a plant life cycle.

  1. Great idea to explore a different way of 'writing' an explanation. Gave my year 6 class some good ideas and confirmed the format of an explanation and how that differed from insrtuctions. Thanks.
