Year 1 Before and After

This Year 1 Before and After lesson covers the prior learning of sequencing familiar events, before moving onto the main skill of using key vocabulary to sort and describe the order of events.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for this step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
