Your 11+ Prep Reading Adventure
Preparing for the 11+ is hard work for the whole family, but reading is a great way to boost your child's vocabulary and super-charge preparation time – the fun way!
TheSchoolRun asked secondary English teacher, parent and 11+ tutor Emma Larard to choose 40 books that are guaranteed to challenge your child and move their reading comprehension up a level. From wonderland to Blitz-torn London, Stone Age caves to Narnia, these titles will introduce your young reader to wonderful fictional worlds and classic texts. They'll fall in love with the stories they read – and pick up huge amounts of new, rich vocabulary as they immerse themselves in books.
For readers who are keen to boost their vocabulary further we also have KS1 classic book recommendations and KS2 kids' classics picks – and some 11+ vocabulary flashcards too!
