At Summerfield Primary School, we know how important reading is, it is a crucial part of every child’s learning and development.
We believe it is important for every child to read and for every child to be read to. We understand how hard it can be for children and parents to choose the right books. Here are some suggested reading lists to support your child. If you would like any further recommendations, please see your child's class teacher or Miss Anderson (our English subject leader).
To help you make further choices with regards to finding age-appropriate texts to read, in these websites books are given age-appropriate ratings and we hope you find them helpful when it comes to making choices about what your child could choose to read next.
