This week we are exploring features of non-fiction texts. We are linking this to our learning about space which is our topic for this half term.


Login to the 'Oxford Owl' website on the link below. Look through a range of suitable books with your child. Can your child spot any fiction or non-fiction books? How do they know? Can they see any of the key features?


Remember, non-fiction texts have the following features:

  • real pictures/photographs
  • factual, gives information
  • contents page
  • headings
  • labels
  • glossary page
