My head has approached me to see if I would be interested in becoming the trained teacher in the Every Child a Reader project as she has been offered funding to implement the scheme. Because of my interest in becoming SENCO in time I said that it sounded interesting and would be something I would like to look into further. Having read the overview on the website it sounds like something I might like to do but I wondered if anyone has experience of doing this and what it is like? One of my main concens with the whole scheme is: 1. It says it only focuses on 4 children!! Is this right? Surely this is a lot of money to be spent on just 4 children and I could do more than this? 2. Does it take into account the Rose report - is it a scheme that complements the phonics schemes now in schools? We currently use Read Write Inc which is working really wel land bringing up our reading levels hugely. I wouldn't want another conflicting scheme to be introduced to those children who struggle the most. 3. how flexible is it? Is it a set scheme to be taught or is it more 'follow these principles' type thing? Any input and feedback (good or bad) would be muh appreciated!
