Differentiation Year 5 instructions

    Hi I am just planning my observation lesson for Tues. All the chn will be writing a set of instructions but I am struggling with differentiation of all things. One group is going to be working with me in guided work, but I have no TA on Tues so the rest need to be independent. Now I thought I would restrict the lower groups to writing maybe six instructions and provide them with a frame that shows how they should be set out as well as a word mat for instructions. My top group I will encourage to use interesting time connectives, imperative verbs etc. Its my middle group I am struggling with. It seems that differentiation by outcome is not acceptable at my place.

    Its ok I think I have sorted it - bottom group - diagrams and stepped instructions.
    Middle - Restricted number of instructions with writing frame.
    Top - expectation for clear written instructions, using a rane of verbs etc.
  3. hi
    if you're still undecided, then on the priamry framework there is a path (somewhere) for progression in different text type genres.
