To keep parents and carers informed about literacy at Deansfield, we hold regular workshops.

We held workshops for parents in January and February 2020.
It is not always possible for everyone to attend so click on the links and attachments below for further information about literacy in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Our new phonics scheme is Little Wandle.



In class, literacy is approached by focusing on quality texts. Images in the slide show illustrate the amazing work that our pupils produce from Nursery to Year 6.

The documents in the links provide information about reading. Our classrooms all have inviting book corners where pupils can select books to read. Look at some class book corners below.

Children have guided reading sessions in class. In Key Stage 1 pupils have a Reading Record book and in Key Stage 2 pupils keep a Reading Log.
