Recommended books for Year 3 and 4

Have a look at this list of recommended books to read in Year 3 and 4.  Maybe your summer holiday read is on the list!


I recommend ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes.  It has 5 chapters – perfect for reading over 5 nights.  Year 3 will be looking at this text more closely in the Autumn term.

Happy reading!
