Y3 books for book shelf

Discussion in 'Primary' started by kettlebabes, Jun 29, 2011.

  1. Hi. I am able to buy some books for my new Y3 class (for September), anybody have any suggestions of books they have found popular or that are simply good books to have in the reading corner? There's the usual - i.e. a set of Roal Dahl books, but what others would you suggest? Many thanks.
     
  2. I've also just had this task so I asked my kids what they would like to have available in school. The following is a combination of what they wanted and what I wanted!
