Our School


Our children use a variety of reading materials including the Oxford Reading Tree series, Floppy's Phonics, Project X and Treetops. Our goal is to teach our children to understand and appreciate what they are reading, rather than to simply 'read the words' from Reception to Year 6 through a structured guided reading programme using a variety of means including synthetic phonics. At St Peter's we use the DfE's Letters and Sounds Programme to underpin our teaching in this area. We encourage parents to support their children through reading a wide variety of materials, not just restricted to school-provided texts.
