Reading At Home

We are often asked to recommend books that are popular with children and have a good literary content. Below is a list of recommended texts for each year group adapted by The School Reading List website.



We are also asked, when are children too old to be read to? The simple answer is never! Sharing a book with your child will expose them to new words and different ways to use the ones they already know.


Even after children learn to read by themselves, it’s still important for you to read aloud together- discussing the story line or the reasons for a character’s actions etc. Not to mention that in this hectic life which we all lead, it is a great way to find 20 minutes of uninterrupted time together.


Please do come and see us if you would like further information- we love talking about books!
