Learning to read is one of the most important things your child will learn at school.  Everything else depends upon it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly as possible.


We want your child to love reading and to want to read for themselves.  This is why we work hard to make sure children develop a love of books as well as simply learning to read.


At Seton School, we have introduced the highly successful `Read Write Inc' programme, which gives children a thorough understanding of how to read the sounds in words and then blend them together to read whole words.  It also includes a systematic approach to writing those sounds down and spelling them correctly in words.   Reading, writing and spelling are taught together through exciting storybooks which the children enjoy in class.  The books are then shared at home with families to further develop children's confidence. 


Throughout the year, we hold a series of workshops to illustrate how parents can support their children's reading at home and we hope you will find the Reading Information Sheet helpful.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading progress, please speak to your child's class teacher or to our Literacy Subject Leader, Mrs Carvell.
