To show that I have met this teaching standard I believe that by planning and delivering Phase 5 phonics I have demonstrated that I am able to begin to show a clear understanding of systematic synthetic phonics. Through planning and delivering my sequence of sessions were observed by and deemed to be outstanding. For me this shows I am on my way to understanding and gaining competence in this area. In order to widen this experience I aim to gain experience in different phases of phonics through observation, teaching and planning. By doing this I believe I will not only consolidate my knowledge but begin to deepen and explore this knowledge leading children to have competency in early reading skills.
