There are four different types of sentences. Have a look at the powerpoint below to learn about each one.

Have a go at making your own commands beginning with these bossy verbs:

Think back to a couple of weeks ago when we wrote instructions how to wash your hands. Can you remember what instructions should include?

Have a look at the example below to remind you.


Somebody has written a set of instructions about making some toast but they don't know how to write it. Have a look at the instructions and find the things that are wrong.

We are going to write another set of instructions about how to play a game. Think of a game that you know how to play that isn't too long, such as how to play hide and seek or tig.


First write a title and list of things that you will need. Make sure you use bullet points.

Next, you need to write the instructions. Each instruction needs to start with a numbered step with each one on a new line. An instruction is a command and will start with an imperative (bossy) verb.

Try and include some adverbs and conjunctions in your writing as well.
