Text Features

This KS2 English quiz takes a look at text features. Text features are used for the layout of books. Can you imagine trying to read a book that was not organised at all, but was just written sentence after sentence with nothing to help the reader find different sections? Books use titles, subheadings, different fonts, chapters, images and all sorts of other features to help readers find and understand information.

You may well be asked to put together a leaflet, newspaper or article in your lessons at school. By playing this quiz, you will have more knowledge of what is required.

Try this quiz about text features to see how well you understand the organisation of books and other texts.
