The Foundation class are already progressing well when recognising sounds. The children are focusing on using the first 6 sounds (s / a / t / i / p / n) to begin building and blending words and will gradually incorporate new sounds. As the children begin to read words, they are encouraged to use sound buttons. A button under the letter will be 'pushed' as they say the sound. The quicker the sound buttons are pushed, the more likely the children will hear the word.
