Reading, Early Reading and Phonics

Our approach to teaching reading begins with the goal of establishing a love of books within each and every child.

At St Peter’s, we believe that we read to understand, interpret and relate to the world around us. We achieve this through rapidly acquiring both the technical skills to decode and the ability to comprehend what we are reading.

To do this we provide and share a wide variety of quality texts and experiences – inspiring meaningful discussions and a love of reading.

We recognise that all learners have different approaches and experiences of reading, but all St Peter’s children become autonomous and adaptable readers.

We use the phonics scheme Read Write Inc.
