Browse Primary School Books by Age and School Year

From homework to reading and spellings to SATs, we have books and advice to guide you through every year of your child’s primary school journey.


As soon as your child starts school, there is school work to do at home. In Reception you’ll be introduced to reading levels and how phonics works. This is also a time when your focus will be on making sure your child feels settled, secure and happy at school.

Year 1 (Age 5–6)

In Year 1 your involvement in homework is important as you practise Common Exception Words together and work out what maths methods to use. Your child will also be getting ready for their Phonics Screening Check.

Year 2 (Age 6–7)

With SATs at the end of the year, there is some useful practice that your child can do at home to familiarise them with the papers. This can help to ease any anxieties that may experience.

Year 3 (Age 7–8)

Children start to become more independent learners at Key Stage 2. Making sure they have access to a suitable dictionary and other reference books can help to improve the quality of their school work.

Year 4 (Age 8–9)

In Year 4 children will be preparing for the Multiplication Check which takes places in the summer term. Our range of practice books for maths and English are a great way to continue learning at home.

Year 5 (Age 9–10)

Many schools will start to get children ready for their SATs with extra practice in grammar, spelling, reading, arithmetic and reasoning. You can also introduce your child to practice books to use at home.

Year 6 (Age 10–11)

Getting your child ready for Year 6 SATs needn’t be onerous. Practice papers are a great way for children to get used to the style of questions. Knowing what to expect can help you and your child feel more relaxed during SATs week.
