Every Child a Reader

At Oakington Manor, we firmly believe that every child can enjoy reading - they just need to find the right book! Have a look at the Recommended Reads lists for each year group from Reception to Year 6.

These books can be found in your child’s class library or your local library.

Make every day a reading day!

  • Let your child choose the book or choose it together.
  • Encourage conversation throughout.
