Additional Curriculum Support

Phonics Scheme


We use the DfES Letters and Sounds scheme to teach phonics at Round Diamond.


It recommends high quality play activities which typify good provision and will offer lots of

opportunities to enrich children’s language across the six areas of learning:

■ Personal, Social and Emotional Development

■ Communication, Language and Literacy

■ Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy

■ Knowledge and Understanding of the World

■ Physical Development

■ Creative Development
