Dear Parents, 


To support your child's love for reading,  please purchase (or borrow from your local library) the books listed below. Each book ties in with this month's TKAW's value of Chardi Kala (Resilience). The books have been organised based on Year groups, which includes challenging novels for children wishing to expand their reading skills. 


We hope your child enjoys their Summer of Reading!
