What we are reading

By Year 6, your child will hopefully be reading independently at home and school for lots of different reasons. Some children may still be reluctant to read adventurously and can get stuck on one author, series, or type of book. Having favourites is great, but Year 6 is also a good time to push the boundaries and read new genres and forms.

In May, your child will take their Key Stage 2 SATs. The tests include maths and English sections, as well as a reading test.

It’s important at this age that your child is encouraged to develop a love of reading. This will help to build a strong foundation for learning when they go to secondary school and for later life.


In Year 6 we are reading:


Crater Lake – Jennifer Killick


This is our current book that we are reading together for pleasure in Year 6.
