This is a great matching exercise for KS2 in which children are asked to read short book extracts and match them to a genre or text-type. The resource has sections on fiction and non-fiction genres, including adventure, thriller, newspaper reports, non-chronological texts and persuasive writing. 

An extension task is included, where children are asked to write their own extract for others to match to a genre. 

Answers are included.

An extract from the resource:

It was midnight and bitterly cold. As the final chime struck, a dark figure stumbled into the night, clouds of breath rapidly rising. Who were they? Where were they going? And why was someone following them?

Are you sick of stubborn stains? Do you want your whites to dazzle? Then try Super Suds washing powder!
