Let's get Bossy!

This week we are going to publish our recipe cards. Before we do this, we need to think about some of the words we will need to use in our recipe. When writing instructions, we use ‘bossy’ or imperative verbs. Watch this video to help understand: Bossy Verbs

Please note: The children will come across these types of verbs many times over the next few years. Do not spend too much time dwelling on them - just have fun being bossy!

Look at the pictures from last week from when you made your porridge. Choose a bossy verbs that matches each part of the recipe. Ask an adult to write these down ready to use tomorrow.

Let's get descriptive!

 

Yesterday, we thought about what we did - bossy verbs. Today, we are going to think about how we did it - adverbs. We are going to use three adverbs to describe three of the bossy verbs / steps in the recipe.

Have a look at the words below. Do you know what they mean? Can you choose 3 of them that fit best with 3 of your bossy verbs from yesterday?

Ask an adult to write your 3 recipe sentences down.

 

carefully      slowly      accurately         gently      patiently    

 

Here are some examples:

1. Put the porridge oats in the bowl carefully.

2. Pour the milk into the measuring jug slowly.

3. Mix the oats and milk gently.

Let's Get Writing!

Today, we are going to start to write up your recipe. You can write your recipe onto a lined piece of paper or use the attached sheet. 

One of the first things we need to think about is an interesting title, such as Perfect Porridge, Porridge Potion or even Penguin Porridge.

Next, we are going to list our ingredients and the

quantities that we used - if you would like you could ask an adult to write these out for you. Once you have done that, list the equipment you used (bowl, spoon, microwave, measuring jug). If you are not sure ask an adult to help write these.

 

Now you can begin to write your recipe out - we have the rest of the week to do this, so take your time and do a little each day.

 You do not have to finish all of this today. Start at step 1. Make sure you think about the order or sequence of the recipe and use your ideas from the beginning of the week.

 Use your photos or drawings to help you.

You are welcome to do as much or as little as you want. In school I would limit the writing to 6 sentences - 2 a day.

An example: 

  1. Put the oats in a bowl carefully.
  2. Pour the milk into a jug slowly.
  3. Mix the oats and milk gently.
  4. Heat in a microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir the porridge.
  6. Add the topping and enjoy!

I would talk through what we were going to write (this is the important bit) and then model it on a piece of paper for them to copy. If your child struggles with writing, it is ok to use a felt pen / highlighter pen and get them to go over the top (do not forget the cursive letters). It is the process of writing that is important, not the outcome.

Let's Continue with our Recipe!

Continue writing up your recipe. It does not matter if you make some mistakes or change things, this is a good thing because this is how we learn. 

By the end of today, make sure that you have read through your recipe and

that it makes sense. Is there anything you would  change to improve it?
