I've recently accepted a position to train/teach as an RR teacher. I wasn't given much information about it when my Head suggested it would suit me but the 1:1 appealed to me and so did the training aspect. Since then I've read a few threads on tes and am beginning to think its not the 'right' thing to do. I'm a believer in phonics and it is taught daily in the school in FS and KS1 (also to small groups in KS2). Now I know a bit more about RR it seems it may confuse the children. The school has recieved funding from the LA for the post, so even though I think the money would be better spent on employing me to teach a smaller group phonics (rather the groups of 15-20 we have now), if it wasn't for RR funding then there would be no post of any sort. Basically i've accepted the post and so will 'do the job' but I'd feel a lot happier if anyone could share some positive experiences. 4 children will be getting some 1:1 attention which I see as a good thing but are there other benefits?
