What's happening in... F/1S

Following a procedure then writing a procedural text

Students in F/1 S are currently learning how to write a procedural text. As a way to deepen their understanding on Wednesday we watched a video together to observe the process.

As a group, students were supported to make their own paper plane.  It was a slow process, where we watched one step in the video then folded the paper in the same way; then we watched the next step in the video and again followed on. As the folding became more complex, students required a little extra support however really enjoyed the end result where they had a competition to see whose plane could fly the furthest. After this activity, we discussed the steps in the process and then wrote out the procedure.
