Procedural Writing

In First Class, our writing focus for October is Procedural Writing.

Procedural writing is a set of steps that explains to the reader how to do something e.g. recipes or instructions for a game.

Last Friday in the Sunflower Room, we had lots of fun making our very own play dough!

On Monday, we were then able to write our very own recipe for play-dough. Take a look below at the recipe and try it yourself!

How to Make Play Dough

What you will need;

  • 8 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of salt
  • 60ml of warm water
  • paint or food colouring
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 2 bowls
  • Spoon/ Spatula
  • Cling film


  1. In one bowl, mix the flour and salt together.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (water, oil and food colouring)
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture.
  4. Mix together using a spoon.
  5. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the table and roll out the dough.
  6. Knead the dough for few minutes.
  7. If your dough is too wet add some more flour or too dry add more water!
  8. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge.

We have been doing great work in Senior Infants learning all about Autumn. We had great fun becoming artists, painting our lovely Autumn trees and we also enjoyed becoming musicians and performing our song 'Autumn Colours.'

The children in 1st Class have been working so hard to create their hedgehog poster and clay hedgehogs. They worked together to research all about hedgehogs including what they eat, where they live, how to keep them safe and even some interesting facts. The children then gave a special performance at assembly where they presented their project and sang a song about hedgehogs. 1st Class are now experts in anything to do with these little creatures!
