Reading Lists for Class Groups

We asked the experts to recommend which books were a suitable read for each class level…. which experts? The children themselves. Please remember that the primary aim here is to provide our children with a selection of books that they will love to read. Don’t quiz them on ‘who did what’; just let them get on with the experience of enjoying a good story. Different children will enjoy different difficulty levels. The idea is that they find what they like.  So don’t get too hung up on the class level suggested on the lists either. Theye are simply guidlelines. You may see your child reading the same book again. This means that she or he really likes that book. That’s great.

Some books for 5th and 6th class levels will touch on adult themes. This is appropriate  so long as the theme is dealt with in a sensitive manner. Obviously, we must always be vigilant but reputable  publishers are very careful with such material.
