RD Calculation Guidance




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

Reading Schemes at RD

We use a range of publishers at RD to ensure children experience a variety of texts.

e.g. Collins Big Cat Books

Collins Big Cat Phonics for Letters and Sounds features exciting fiction and non-fiction decodable texts to enthuse and inspire readers. They are fully aligned to our Phonics Scheme, Letters and Sounds Phases 1–6, and contain notes in the back which can be used as a supportive tool when reading together at home. Our reading books are:

  • Filled with humour, drama, detailed illustrations and endearing characters to motivate every child
  • Perfect for the new National Curriculum
  • Carefully levelled to make sure every child makes reading progress
