Recommended Reading List:
This list is intended to be a guide to books suitable for children in Year 6. The list, covering a range of genres, is drawn from a number of sources including teachers own recommendations; the National Literacy Strategy’s recommended texts; reading lists suggested by other schools and the National Literacy Trust’s website. Some of the texts are more difficult to read than others and care should be taken when choosing those which your child might enjoy. Please discuss the books your child reads with him/her and remember that even in Year 6, although a book might be difficult for your child to read, he/ she will probably still enjoy having it read by an adult.
