Year 6 Leavers 2016

” Forget about the days
when it’s been cloudy,
but don’t forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times
you’ve been defeated,
but don’t forget the victories you’ve won.
Forget about the mistakes
that you can’t change now,
but don’t forget the lessons.
Forget about the misfortunes
you’ve encountered,
but don’t forget the times your luck has turned.
Forget about the days
when you’ve been lonely,
but don’t forget the friendly
smiles you’ve seen……
Forget about the plans
that didn’t seem to work out right,
but don’t forget to always have a dream.”

100 Best books.

Drawing from over 90 years’ experience of recommending children’s books, our experts have put together a list of the 100 best children’s books for Children’s Book Week.

The exciting 100 combines an eclectic mix of traditional classics and modern greats that we believe are must-reads to fire children’s imaginations and turn them into life-long readers.

Take a look at the books on our list – How many have you read?
