We are starting a brand new topic this term all about TOYS!
As with every lesson, let's start by recapping all the sounds we have learnt - please say the sounds along with the video as you normally would at school.
This term in English we are going to be learning about instructions. We have learned a bit about instructions and algorithms in computing last term - remember an instruction is when you tell someone to do something.
Today I want to see what you know about instructions so please can you write set of instructions on:
