I thought they were supposed to cover all of them in reception other than tion, tious, cious.

I might well have got that wrong though.

DD knows lots of her sounds both to read and write. For phonics, she has been put with the other children learning to use phase 5 phonics for spelling in her school - some y1, y2 and y3.

You will find the phases referred to here:

There are some very good letters and sounds work books on Amazon too.

In summary 1st sounds taught In phase 2, more are tauht in phase 3, phase 4 consolidates (some teach at same time as phase 3). This is aim for reception. Then year 1 is phase 5 & year 2 phase 6.

Some schools group children according to their knowledge (so different year groups in same phonic group). Some will only teach by year group & if they only follow Jolly Phonics, don't complete all the phases.

Also phase 6 focus is spellings.

I think I've got that right!

I agree with thegamesafoot, by the start of Year 1 children should be working on Phase 5 in an ideal world, so Phases 2-4 should be covered in Reception. It does vary slightly on the phonics scheme though, for instance if the school uses Read Write Inc they should be moved up when they are ready.

It depends what programme your child's school follow.
