At St George's we promote a love of reading. We want all of our children to be successfull readers and to enjoy reading as much as we do. We had a short meeting for parents to talk about how we teach reading in school and what parents can do at home to support their children. Please click here to see the powerpoint slides. We have also attached the year 1 word lists to the bottom of this page.
