Welcome to Foundation Stage
We are Seacole class
Learning with Jesus to be the best that I can be.
In Reception and Year One, the children use a 'Rainbow' reward system. Children begin the day on the 'Sunshine'.
Children who work hard, follow our 'Be attitudes' and rules will be placed on the 'Rainbow'. They will receive a rainbow ticket to acknowledge their achievements.
Children will be placed on the 'Raincloud' if they need to alter their behaviour. They are given the opportunity to move back onto the 'Sunshine' once their behaviour or efforts improve.
St. Joseph's Catholic Primary School uses the 'Floppy's Phonics Sounds and Letters' scheme to promote rigorous synthetic phonic teaching for reading success. Please access the link to learn more about the scheme, the order of teaching and further information on synthetic phonics
Useful websites to support phonics
Phonicsplay - Some resources require a subscription but there are many free games and resources
Mr. Thorne - Videos of sounds plus many other reading resources
Geraldine the Giraffe - Videos of sounds featuring the comic character 'Geraldine'.
'Letters and Sounds' is a useful tool for games to play at home.
