Kenilworth School

Suggested Y6/7 transition Reading List

Suggested Reading from the Learning Resource Centre


This is a small selection of books that will help you progress your reading as you move from year 6 to year 7. Some authors may be familiar to you, others will be new to you, all will take you away to a different time or place.

You probably can’t access your school library and the public libraries are closed but the titles have been checked and all are available from the Warwickshire County Library eBook library. If you don’t have a library card it’s very easy to get one from the website, but you may need a grown up to help you
