28 June 2020

Hello Year 1s! Welcome to week 5, please read on for this weeks learning.

Please remember to pick up your learning pack on Wednesday afternoon. It has all your learning for the week and this week it will be coming with a very special non-fiction book!



Over the next few weeks we are going to be looking at non-fiction texts. I'd like you to think about what non-fiction means and discuss this with your family.

Once you have done that, read this non-fiction piece of texts. Look carefully at what the features are. 

Can you label the following on the text:

  • Title
  • Sub-heading
  • Picture/Photograph
  • Facts
  • Labels

Some books that are non-fiction also have a contents page, glossary and index page. Have you seen any books with these features?
