jollyphonics is unlogical and for dumb people. my daughter is smart and a lefty and teachers repeatedly ignore me stating this that she still writes backwards and upside down, they cant read it they cant understand it as they are not smart enough. Jolly phonics does not make sense to a logical mind, I can not even retain it as the motion and sound do not correspond with the letter and word it will turn into! I am very smart, and this is getting on my nerves that teachers talk to me and other parents like we are children and my IQ probably way surpasses that of most of them, yet they do not listen. now in year 2 my child still struggles to join the words, yes I will not use blend as the word is incorrect! however it also turns out that pretty much all the children that can read on quite high levels dont understand a single word they read, they can not as the teacher said "comprehend" which is not very useful considering that I think about 1/4 of the class is polish. I have also only just found out that the children have been taught french since reception without us having been informed about this. English and French are so majorly different its unreal when you consider how early they push this on the children and will confuse every child bar 1 that speaks french at home as his dad is! Now I want to know if there is any schools out there that still teach without jolly phonics, but properly!
