This week we have the World Book Day Scholastic Teen Book Club Magazine available for students to bring home.  Orders can be brought to school and need to be given to Mrs Garraway in the Learning Centre by Thursday 12th March (payment must be included and can be either cash or cheques made out to Thamesmead School).

Now, however, there is an even easier way to order. We have just set up our Scholastic Book Club school group order online. This means you can now order all the books in the Teen Book Club Magazine and many more at and what’s more, you’ll be able to have your books delivered to school for FREE!


Book orders need to be placed online by Monday 16th March and this will ensure that you receive them in time for Easter.  After that date, I will confirm that all orders are in and the books will be delivered to school for distribution via students in class.  For every £1 spent, 20p will go back to our school to spend on much-needed books for our Learning Centre library!


Take a look at what’s on offer at – there are some great bargains!  Mrs Garraway
