OK I'm new to reception (starting after xmas) and have only done KS2 before so maybe I have some misconceptions/misunderstandings. After xmas I am due to start phase 3 however having observed the class many of the children don't seem to have a particular good grasp of what they did in Autumn. So do I plough on regardless? It seems to me that the children are meant to fit the programme and yet this seems to run counter to planning individually for the children's needs Grapheme, segment, blending when did teaching simple letter sounds become such a psuedo-science. Why satpin? why not a,b,c Is it just me or do others feel steamrollered by the whole process?
