How to Make a Margherita Pizza: Instructions for Year 3/4


About this unit:

This is a ten-lesson unit of English work based on the reading and writing of instructions. It is intended for Lower Key Stage 2. This unit follows the 2014 National Curriculum objectives. The ten lessons in this unit allow children to explore, discuss and understand instructions writing. During the first week children will plan, write and edit instructions based on making a margherita pizza. However, before this process begins the teacher will model how to prepare the pizza using the model instructions. This allows children to experience instructions in real life. In the second week, children will use their instructions from the previous week to make their own pizza. In addition, children will create an instructions PowerPoint based on this process. Children will be able to adapt and improve their written instructions whilst making their own pizza and this learning will be reflected in their final PowerPoint presentation. Sample pictures of a margherita pizza have been included with this resource and can be found in a separate Word file.
