It is important to ensure your child is reading a wide variety of books and genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. This could be in the form of e-books, online, magazines as well as a good old-fashioned hardback or paperback book.
In addition to the selection in our school library, our local library in Westbury (link) holds a great range of books no matter what your child’s interests or ability and it is absolutely free to borrow a book from them.
As a school, we want to encourage your child to develop a lifelong love of learning so have collated a list of recommended titles from various online sources:
