Hello Year 5 Families,
Here is a list of recommended books for ages 9+. These are wonderful because they span different genres and contain enriching vocabulary that students should know at this stage of learning. I always tell my pupils that reading for pleasure is the best way to learn, and recommend at least 30 minutes of daily home reading. As well, it helps when children orally read books to help with fluency.
Many of these books can be found at libraries or on websites for reduced prices. If you would like additional recommendations, please feel free to reach out.
I look forward to hearing about these books!
