Lesson 5- Investigation

English (over 4 lessons)

This week, we are continuing to look at explanation texts. Try to remember our work about The Snoozatron.

Can you write a list of features that we should see in an explanation text?

Watch the video clip- Autochef 





Make a list of events that happen during the clip.


Use the planning sheet to begin to plan your explanation text about Autochef.

In your plan, try to include,

  • formal language. Use this website to help-
  • conjunctions (causal)
  • passive voice e.g. The lever must be pulled down sharply.
  • accurate punctuation
  • try not say 'you'. Use 'the user'
  • generalisations
  • include an introduction and conclusion
  • remember to explan and not give instructions


When you are happy with your plan, you can begin to write your explanation independently.


Remember to keep checking that you are including the features above.
