At Diamond Wood Community Academy we take tremendous care and enjoyment from reading and writing. All units of work are based around a high quality text. This core text is changed every half term for every year group, the children are "hooked" into their core text through an exciting launch activity. It is wonderful to see children immersed in their core test as they complete reading, writing, creative and talk time activities linked to its theme.
Please see the Reading, Writing and Phonics pages for more detail on each of these strands of our English curriculum.
