Books to Read in …
Follow the links for suggestions for books for your child to read at home based on year groups in school. We hope you will find the lists useful when you are in a library, browsing in a book shop/charity shop or looking on ebay! We also have copies of a selection of the books in classrooms. Most, but not all, are available from the school library.
