  1. Hi, i wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction of books that I can use for this Literacy unit? It is my first year in Year 1 and so I am a little unsure as to which books are useful. My topic for this half term is seaside and pirates. Does anyone know of any good books that I could link with my topic?
    Any help would be very much appreciated!!
    Thanks x

  3. Peter Pan? I've used it in Year 4, not sure whether it might be a bit advanced for Year 1 though...

    You might be able to get an abridged version for littlies. I've done it with Y5, and they loved the subject matter, but found the language a challenge.

    Hi
    When I taught Y1 I used the following for fantasy stories.
    On a space/alien/monster theme:
    Where the Wild Things Are
    Come to Tea on Planet Zum Zee
    I'm Coming to Get You!
    Man on the Moon
    On a pirates theme:
    Tim, Ted and the Pirates
    Port Side Pirates
    The Night Pirates
    Jolly Roger and the Pirates of Captain Abdul

    Hope that helps [​IMG]
    PS It's a really good unit to teach! Kids loved it.
