Books that were important to me at primary school:

  • The start of the Harry Potter series (the rest came out while I was in secondary).
  • The Twits and the Witches (though both terrified me).
  • James and the Giant Peach
  • Any and all Horrible Histories.
  • Holes by Louis Sachar.
  • The Ha Ha Bonk Book (I used to love joke books).
  • The Jolly Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.
  • DK Encyclopedias about anything.
  • Dinosaur Poems by Korky Paul.

 

Children's Books that I have enjoyed as a teacher (these would be a tough independent read! Perhaps better for shared stories):

  • Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy
  • The Tin Princess by Philip Pullman
  • The Explorer by Katherine Rundell
  • The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
  • The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney
