Eight Plus Reading List

Reading suggestions for the 8+ exam:

Here is a selection of books taken from the suggested 8+ reading lists from different schools. Whilst your child may be able to comfortably read some of these independently, others will be more challenging. There are also picture books included- this is because children do enjoy looking at picture books and enjoyment in reading is key.
