Valentines Day is next Sunday so I decided to link my procedural writing for February with the theme of love. We covered procedural writing last October and the children loved creating spells to turn me into a toad.


This month they will write their very own love potion. Their procedural writing should include

  • Title
  • List (bullet points) ingredients/equipment
  • Method and numbered points
  • Time words at the beginning of the sentence (this also helps the children to keep things in order – first add _______ next stir and pour ________ etc.)
  • Bossy words for each instructions
