Book Corner for Year 6

Welcome to our reading list for Year 6. It is full of suggestions for books to read and contains a good mixture of the most recent fiction, classics and everything in between. Why not curl up with a good book!

Note for Parents
Children mature emotionally at different times. This list contains books suitable for children between 9 and 13 years old. Therefore please be vigilant about what your child is reading and ensure that you are happy that they are mature enough for the storylines they are choosing. Examples of books within the list which might be appropriate for some children and less so for others would be "The Hunger Games" Trilogy and "The Boy in Striped Pyjamas".
