St Margaret's primary reading corner

Help your child develop a love of reading

Reading is an important part of your child's development and transition into adulthood. We at St Margaret's hope to engage your child in reading through a variety of materials over their time with us and encourage parents to do the same at home. 

Here you can find our Book of the Week feature (at the bottom of this page or click here), with a host of book reviews and recommendations from an independent book store in Hove and in the future we will also be posting some reviews written by our very own children. 

Also featured is our "Staff Favourites", videos of our team members discussing their favourite children's books! All are available at the school library for your child to enjoy.
