Tidcombe loves to read

Tidcombe children LOVE to read. Fact.


We are so proud of our pupils, who show real passion for text, which has been highlighted in the Summer Reading Challenge where we have been crowned winners for two years running (2018 and 2019).



We love reading at Tidcombe and are passionate about all children seeing themselves as readers. Even though pupils are not able to access the school library as they used to, we are doing everything we can to inspire and motivate them to read for pleasure. Have you noticed our clues to inspire reading on your walk around the one-way system? 

 Dotted around the inside of the school are signs telling pupils what the staff are reading at the moment. We all take part in this, from Kate in the office to Sharron and Paula in the kitchen and Mr Green upstairs.  We’ve realized that we read a whole range of material, from recipe books, to novels and also non-fiction. Above are individual pictures of our staff reading some of the lovely texts we have in school. Can you work out who they are? The children have already started to add their guesses!

Words of the Week - how many can you guess?
