Books to read or listen to (lots of these can be listened to on YouTube)

In Year One we have been enjoying books by the Author Oliver Jeffers in Year One e.g. How to Catch a Star, The Day the Crayons Quit.

Traditional Tales – We would love the children to know common traditional tales such as The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Red Riding hood etc but we would also like the children to hear some less common tales such as The Elves and the Shoemaker and Hansel & Gretel.

In the Summer Term of Year One our learning revolves around animals, especially those animals we find in Zoos. Any stories about animals would be good to listen to or read. We would love you to bring your suggestions into school when we are back.

We will also be learning about the human body and our senses. Maybe you could read some non-fiction texts about our body and how we use our senses.
