Recommended Reading Lists for Website

Parents / Carers,

Please find some links below for you to access recommended reading lists for your children. You will see they are divided into year groups, which will help you to decide which books are suitable for your child. It would be lovely if you could go over this list with your child – you never know, they may have already read some of them.


I do hope you find these lists useful. I have to confess I have not read all of these books, so when you do read any of them, it would be great if your child could do a book review and recommendation for other children. This could then be posted on our website too.


The School Reading List website that I have chosen to use describes itself:

The School Reading List is curated and reviewed by a small group of librarians and English teachers who meet each Summer to discuss books which have worked well with groups of children, new releases within the last 12 months and the shortlists for children's literature awards.

We also decide on a book of the month which we feature on the website, normally after the 20th of each month. These titles tend to be selected from pre-release lists, or copies provided to us via Waterstones, local book sellers or publishers.

Only books which have been read to children or 'road-tested' with classes are reviewed or suggested.


Happy reading!
