Reading is at the heart of what we do at St. Peter's. We aim to teach children to read quickly, and foster in them a love of reading which will stay with them for their whole life. Our reading is based around the best in children's literature which we refine and adapt as new novels and texts are published. 

Early Reading: at St. Peter’s we teach phonic using Read Write Inc. For more details about this strategy, please follow this link: RWInc
