We had another fantastic week over on the Seesaw app, well done everyone for all your hard work! This week I am going to set the children a task that they can work on over the week.

Then read Starlight Combined Reader pg. 46 How to Make a Pizza. After reading answer the following questions:

The title of this text is ‘How to Make a Pizza’. How can you tell that this is a procedure?

A recipe is a type of procedure. Procedures often contain a list of things that are needed. In this case, the things that are needed to make the pizza are the ‘Ingredients’.

Do you know what ‘purée’ is? This is a French word and can be used to describe mashed-up food.

Why do you think this step of the procedure says to ask an adult for help?

Do you think the order of the steps is important? Explain why you think that.

What kind of action is ‘sprinkle’? Show how you sprinkle something.
Why didn’t the author just say ‘Put the grated cheese on the pizza’?

When you see the word ‘finally’ in a procedure, what does this tell you?

Have you ever made pizza? What toppings did you use?
