Bookworms is aimed at primary school children in Years 4 to Year 6. Every week we will suggest a great book to read and give you a ‘word of the week’ to enhance your vocabulary. You can also check out the Reading List Booklet below for further fabulous fiction and non-fiction books to get stuck in to.

Sade and her brother Femi are refugees who had to leave Nigeria for Britain because their father was a journalist who criticised the government and their mother was killed. A book that looks at what it’s like to be considered ‘illegal’.
WORD OF THE WEEK
