From spring-cleaning a dungeon to feeding a hungry dragon, these imaginative ideas are perfect for practising verbal and written instructions
1. A cleaner at the castle
You will need: pictures of castles; a list of castle vocabulary – moat, drawbridge, portcullis, battlements and so on; paper and pencils.
Explain to the children that the nobleman and his family who live in the castle are preparing for a huge celebration. Of course, they want the castle to look as beautiful as possible, so they have hired a cleaner. Everyone will be too busy to show the cleaner what to do, so the instructions must be written down.
