Children at Thakeham Primary School enjoy a range of reading opportunities.  Readings books are sourced mainly from Big Cat Books, Oxford Reading Tree and Storyworlds as well as 'free readers' from our own book stock, West Sussex Library Service and Project Loans.
Pupils in EYFS to Year 2 develop their phonic skills using the structured programme Read Write Inc of which all of our the relevant staff have received training.
We have a fantastic new library complete with our own Thakeham Reading Tree which we love - it's a perfect spot for enjoying a good read!
Our 'Bookworms' along with Mrs Hoare, Mrs Hopkins and Mrs Strong help keep our library tidy and up to date.
The Reading Cloud is our great new library loan system which keeps track of all our reading.
