Explanation texts – structure and language

This week we have been learning about explanation texts.

Zeid and Humaira have told us about the different features and how they help us to find out information but can you tell me anything about the language used in explanation texts?


– What tense are they written in?

– 1st person or 2nd person?

– How do they create interest?

– What is field specific vocabulary and why is it used?


Use the text on the Learning Journey to help find your answers when you are in school!
