Hi I am new to Year 1 and not sure how to organise literacy and phoncis teaching. I would be grateful to hear how people organise their time. Do you keep literacy teaching and phonics separate? (i.e. teach separate lessons) or do you include it at the beginning of a literacy lesson. I am just about to start teaching my first unit of labels, lists and captions and at the same time start phonics teaching with them but am not sure how I go about doing this. Should phonics be taught for a set time each day - any advice would be greatly appreicated. I am starting to tear my hair out!
