Year 1 Long Term Map and Termly Plans
Recommended Reading for Year 1
We expect children to read at home at least three times a week. We encourage children to read everything and anything, including books, comics, magazines, poetry, road signs, cereal boxes, recipes, newspapers, websites and even books they write themselves.
Below is a list of websites and recommended books for your child’s age group. Some of these books are ideal for adults to read to your children and others would be great for children to read themselves. For more information about each of these books, click on the following links:
