Alphabetical Order (Letters)

This quiz looks at the alphabetical order of letters and asks KS1 children to alphabetise letters. The National Curriculum states that Year 1 pupils should be able to name and order all the letters of the alphabet.

This quiz will aid that learning in addition to giving children a solid foundation of literacy and the English language on which to build.

There are 26 letters in the alphabet. It’s important to know all the letters and their order.
