Hi all, It's been a funny old year with regards to our timetable. It was changed dramatically at the start of the year so that Key Stage 1 had a different break time to the rest of the school. It was timetabled that Years 1 and 2 (2 form entry) would stream for phonics and would have a lesson every day 9:00 till 9:30. Anyway it hasn't worked so we've asked the head if we can change the break time back and have our daily phonics lesson from 1:10 - 1:30. She isn't keen as she thinks phonics won't be as effective if taught in the afternoon as the children are not 'fresh'. At the moment tho we are teaching maths or literacy in the afternoon anyway because of our timetable. So what do people think? Is phonics more effective in the mornings? Or does the time of it not matter? Thanks!
