I have split my Reception class into two separate phonics groups - one that has repeated Phase 2 and now onto Phase 3 with the children who were finding digraphs etc too difficult. They have made great progress; and my other group continued with Phase 3, recapping it again before now moving onto Phase 4. My problem is that I have a couple of children that are working comfortably at Phase 5, and instinctly can read even some of the split digraphs without having been taught them. I need to ensure that my Phase 4 teaching is extending and challenging the learning for my Phase 5ers. I work at a small school, where there are mixed year groups, so they couldn't have Phonics with KS1, as it wouldn't work with our timetable. Has anyone experienced this situation before, and how did you get around the planning?
