Thakeham Primary School
World Book Day
On world book day everyone in Thakeham Primary had the most magical experience with a wonderful book breakfast to share with all their family and friends, then an absolutely amazing time with the author Abie Longstaff. Every class had to vote for their favourite costume and the very lucky children won a book for their age category.
On Maths day the whole school took their time having lots of fun with Maths. We used the outside area, field, Forest School area and Cookery room to help us learn Maths in a practical, fun way. One class even did some amazing bowling using fractions and also did some great working outside with chalk.
Our Easter service was a time for us to reflect on some important themes in the Easter story including love, forgiveness, sadness and hope. Every child painted a rock to represent their class theme. Readings, and hymns were all part of our theme of ‘Reflection.’
We were delighted to have Rev’d Dawn Carn help lead our service along with church helpers Mary Jane and Katherine. Rev’d Dawn has supported us over the past 2 years in her interim role at Trinity Church leading assemblies and welcoming us to the church too. We will miss her and wish her every health and happiness for the future.

Trees & nature
Trees play such an important role in the children’s lives at Storrington Primary that we even named our classes after them. All year round, our school trees provide wonderful places to explore during playtime and Forest School sessions, and encourage all kinds of wildlife to make our school their home.
Towards the end of term, many of our trees received special attention as the whole school focused on poetry inspired by “The Lost Words” – a beautifully illustrated book of “spells” about nature. The children planted new fruit trees, enjoyed nature walks in the school grounds and produced some amazing poems which they shared on the last day of term.
