    Thank you Pamela, I’ll get this for my Yr3 son, sounds like just the thing. If you have any other suggestions for beginning reader chapter books I’d appreciate it.

    Hi Claire,

    I can recommend the following titles for beginning readers in Year 3:

    The Ogre of Ogleforth by Eva Ibbotson
    The Ottoline series by Chris Riddell
    The Flat Stanley series by Jeff Brown
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
    A Necklace of Raindrops by Joan Aiken
    The Dragonsitter series by Josh Lacey
    The Fastest Boy in the World by Elizabeth Laird

    We have all of these in the Curriculum Centre collection if you wanted to view them.

    Best wishes,

    Lucy

    Hi Claire,
    really pleased that you liked my recommendations. Lucy as also sent a whole list for you to look for. I would add Liz Pichon’s The Brilliant World of Tom Gates series, which is an English version [and better I think] of Wimpy Kid.
