What books are suitable for Year 5?
Some of you have asked about books that we would recommend to your children. Please find a list compiled at the bottom of this page. They are just a taste of course and it is by no means a comprehensive list, but the books are suitable for the age group and have been promoted by many past pupils. If you are unable to get these books, do take note of the authors, some of whom have been prolific in their writing.
