At Morven Park we are committed to following the ECAR program. This ensures that all children who need additional support with learning how to read and write are given access to the type of intervention they need. We have 2 trained teachers (Mrs Hague and Miss Wheater) who are able to deliver this intervention.
In Reading Recovery children work one-to-one with a teacher, to become independent problem solvers. The children, who have a half hour lesson every day, make good progress in both reading and writing. The lesson is broken into 6 sections. The children start by reading two familiar books, and then read a third book, where strategies the children are using to decode text are checked and built upon to help them. Magnetic letters are used to help with word building skills. Then a conversation is had with the pupil and they write a short story sentence. This sentence is then cut up on card for the children to rebuild before they read a new book.
