Session 1

Show your child a fact file and read through it. Ask you child if they think this is a story. Why/why not? What is different? Discuss the difference between fiction and non-fiction (fiction is made up and non-fiction is fact), then go over the features of a non fiction text (it tells us information or something that is real). Look at the special features of a fact file (name, habitat, diet and a fact) and discuss what a fact is. Talk about your child with them and then create a fact file for your child. This is a link for online fact files:

They could draw and you write

They could have a go at spelling simple words

They could write their own fact file
