Reading in Year 6


I have really missed being able to read with you all, share new books you might want to read and hear about what you are reading!

However, it has been wonderful to some of you taking photographs of your reading diary entries and uploading them onto Class Dojo - well done for keeping up with your reading from home!


Here are some new stories I think you might find interesting - some link into our topics and some are just to read for pleasure.  I hope you enjoy reading them if you get chance and it would be lovely to hear some of your responses to the books too!


International Women's Day - Monday 8th March 2020

Let me know if you want any more information about any of these stories or search the title of the book on Google to find out more.

Recommended by You :)

The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf

I recommend this book because it is excting and adventurous.  I think it is 8 year olds+ because there are some upsetting moments in it.  This book told me what refugees go through and what a refugee is.
- Evelyn, Year 6


The Darkest Unicorn by Alice Hemming

I think you should read this book because it is exciting and when you start reading it you will never want to stop. 
- A Year 6 child


The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton

The Magic Faraway Tree is the most magical page-turning book I have ever read.  It inspired me to get into the remarkable world of reading.  It's got amazing characters, is really fun to read and overall an astonishing story - it will make you laugh, shock you and excite you.  Many dreams in this book come true and this is why I recommend this book.

- Scarlett, Year 6
