Year 5LD students have been learning how to write explanation texts in English. For their project, they had to undertake these steps to create a video which explains the process of various topics such as touchscreens, airbags and microphones.
1. Research using child-friendly sites on their chosen topic.
2. Take notes, selecting key words and phrases and noting them down in their books.
3. Piece together these notes into paragraphs which include key features of explanation texts.
4. Record their presentation not forgetting eye contact, expression and delivery.
The children did a wonderful job and it has been great to see their technology skills develop along with their confidence in front of a camera. Well done!
