Reading Recommendations

 

We have many avid readers in our class, which is fantastic! We are so pleased that lots of you really enjoy reading for pleasure.

Maybe for your next book though, you could try a different author or even a different genre to continue to expand your reading knowledge.

Much of the reading tests nowadays expect a very broad range of vocabulary to be used and continuing to read widely may help with this.

Please see below for some ideas of books you may like to try.

If you have any recommendations, why not let us know?
