English 9.30-10.30am

Welcome back children, we hope you all had a relaxing week off!

Back to home learning this week - are you ready to do lots more learning?

This week in English we will be looking at 'Information texts' - Can you tell your family what we call information books - Non-fiction Books

This week we want the children to be able to identify features of non-fiction books

Look at the book in their reading bag. Is it a fiction (story book) or a non-fiction book (information book)?

Does it have any of the features of non-fiction books - contents, glossary, index, photographs? Today we will look at the features of a non-fiction book and what job they do?

Look at the power points below and talk to your child about the features of a non-fiction book.
Below I have added a video of Miss Gray sharing a non-fiction book all about 'Sunflowers' for you to share with your child, I would like you to watch the video and help your child make a list of the features that they see eg: contents page, photographs, index, labels, glossary, caption, headings, sub-headings, diagrams, facts. Talk to your child about each of these features and what job their job is. You can do this with other books you might have at home.
