We are starting a new genre in English today - we will be writing instructions.
This will be themed on the book ‘Curiosity-The Story of a Mars Rover.’
The attachments below outline what different introductions to instructions might look like, and what features they may have.
This week, you will all be working towards completion of your own set of instructions with the title: How to send a rover to Mars.
However today, you will be writing your introduction and your equipment list only. Pay attention to the examples to support your writing. Please include engaging questions and use the book to help you add detail.
Extracts of the book that relate to this lesson can be found below. I would like you to watch the video first. There is a video of the entire text being read that can be found at:
(watch from the start to 2:01 to support your introduction, 7:37-8:13 for your equipment list… don’t forget the rover in your list!)
There are also some actual photos and videos that Curiosity sent back from Mars at:
These may help you inspire the reader by describing the sights they may see if they sent their own rover to Mars!

Reading this article might be useful, to give you an overview of some of the first hand accounts of what victims of this tragedy faced.

Today, I would like you to imagine you were one of the survivors who went to the match, write a letter to a friend/ family member telling them about-
1) What you saw ?
2)Were there any particular things that you saw or heard that have stayed back in your memory?
3) When you tried to escape what sort of problems did you face?
4) Luckily you escaped, what did you see once you got out in the streets or when you were taken to the hospital?
5) How do you feel now that you survived this tragedy? What suggestions can you make to the Football Association/Clubs to avoid/reduce risks of another such tragedy?
