Procedural Texts

These include:
- Lists
- Recipes
- Instructions
- Game rules and strategies

Procedures form an important part of everyday life.  Children begin to understand the purpose of procedures from a very young age as they help a parent to buy everything on the shopping list, help a parent to assemble toys or furniture by following the instructions or help make their birthday cake and lick the bowl afterwards.

For these reasons young children can relate to 'procedures' as a text type and this is often one of the first text types introduced in Primary school.
