Hello,

Can anyone suggest good reading books for a year 3 boy. Just looking to build up his reading for his age and then eventually eleven plus! Also is there anyone who can mark his creative writing and comprehensions online?

Thx

Take him to a library and let him loose in the stacks? Our libraries have 'S' and 'S+' categories as the two below the Young Adult classification; I'm fairly sure all our DC were getting books out from 'S' by year 3 - DS1 definitely read Muddle Earth when he was eight, not sure which classification that was.

Essentially, he will do better with books that interest him, be that Dragonology or whatever, or What Katy Did. (What I am trying to say is, at this age he needs to be reading for pleasure, at least at home, not only having just another version of the ghastly Biff and Chip to look forward to at the end of the day :lol: ).

As usual I agree with Toadmum - let him have free rein of the library and encourage him to read loads for pleasure (although I have to say I was always rather partial to Biff and Chip) . WRT marking his creative writing - year 3 is far too young to be looking at his writing critically. IMO.

I also think it's too early to be thinking about creative writing in Year 3. My ds really enjoyed the Mr Gum series and other silly/funny books. I think he read some of the Roald Dahl books then too but also enjoyed the Beano and other annuals and factual (particularly Dinosaur! encyclopaedia's).
