Hi, I'm an experienced Nursery teacher in a Primary school. My children attend for 2 and a half days per week. We have 20 children and I have a TA. The Literacy Co ordinator is pushing for me to teach phase 2 phonics Asap ( or SATPIN as she calls it!). Our children come in with low levels in attention, listening, speaking and prior experiences. Has anyone else been forced to do this? I feel that good quality phase 1 experiences are more important at this stage, but I understand the 'push' for raising standards. Any advice/ comments welcome!
