I am new to Reception this year and we have been working hard at our phonics! We have completed phase 2 however I am concerned that I still have about half the class that are not independently blending yet. Including a handfull of chn that are struggling to recognise letters at all! How would you find best to manage this, would you still move on to phase 3? As I do have chn who are ready for this. Any good tips to teach blending skills? Thank you for any advice you can offer.
