Hello everyone!

Writing Excellent Explanations

Hey there,

Here are the sample explanation pieces of writing that we looked at last week.

Examples of Explanations

As a rough guide for you:
How Rocket Shoes Work is about grade 1.
Why Tadpoles Change is by a grade 2 class.
Why Tsunamis Occur is about grade 3.
How Kites Fly is about grade 4.
How to Become A Knight is about grade 5/6.

If I recall correctly, you were most impressed by the information in the kites article and that you felt the knights one showed the most amount of information in an appropriate way for grade 5 students.

You should use these samples to guide your own explanation piece of writing. Everyone has their own list in their BIG green book on what they think a great explanation includes- things like sizzling starts, some dialogue, pictures or diagrams, scientific language, good descriptions. Use this to help you as well. 

Once you have written your explanation piece. Collect a Revision Checklist and have a self assessment of your own work.

Looking forward to reading your explanations!
Miss C.
