Explanation Texts

April 27th, 2017 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

Over the past 2 weeks we have been looking at explanation texts. We have learned how to write interesting introductions, excellent explanations and concise conclusions. We have also looked at embedded clauses, temporal conjunctions and causal conjunctions.

Today was our final write that explains what plants need to grow well.

Here is Ebony’s explanation text which has earned her a place in Gold Book this week…

How do plants grow well?

In this explanation text I’m goi g to explain how do plants grow well. A plant, which can come in various colours, is a little thing that can be different shapes and sizes.

The most important thing plants need is water because it gives the plant nutrients. The nutrients travels through the stem. Unfortunately, if they plant doesn’t have any water the leaves will become dry and the stem will appear to be fragile, hence this may cause the plant to die.

Another thing a plant needs is light. This will help the plant grow strong and healthy. However, if a plant doesn’t have these things it will grow tall but flimsy and very weak which will cause it to die.

Plants also need warmth. It needs warmth because it will germinate and grow super healthy. If it didn’t have these things it wouldn’t germinate and it will die. Did you know germinate means the plants is sprouting?

Now you know how plants grow well. Do you plant plants?

Absolutely fantastic Ebony! You should be very proud of your explanation text!

Today in R.E we have been looking at Christian prayers.

We have also been writing our own prayers which include saying thank you and sorry to God, as well as sharing our hopes for the future with him.

Here are a couple of our prayers!

Dear Lord,

thank you for my beautiful life and this day, for it has been extraordinary! I’m sorry for all the mistakes I’ve made through my life so far. Please forgive me. I wish that my family and friends will be successful and I hope that I get to see my daddy more often.

Today, as part of our topic and science lesson, we designed and made magnet games!

Miss Peach gave us some ideas for our games and we designed and improved those ideas.

Some of us made racing tracks for the magnets to push the cars, others did a fishing game for the magnets to catch the fish and a lot of us made a maze for our characters to try and get out.

We had loads of fun!
