Year 6 (age 10-11)

A selection of books especially selected for children in Year 6 (10 - 11 year olds) of average reading ability for the 2020/21 academic year.

If your child is a competent reader or has read all these titles then try the books from the Year 7 list. Alternatively if these books are a little challenging try books from the Year 5 list. Our overall mission is to promote reading for pleasure with quality texts that are perfectly pitched for the age group and the curriculum. We have particularly avoided blockbusters, classic or set texts, known to everyone, so that we can include poetry, stunning information texts and inspirational books in which all children and young people can find themselves reflected.

Thanks to our partnership with Browns Books For Students we are able to offer all the books on this list at an exclusive price.
