Read Every Day, Talk Every Day
RED TED is an acronym for children Reading Every Day with their parent or carer and then Talking Every Day about what they have read.
We strongly encourage you to continue RED TED as part of your home learning. Keep track of how many books you read with tally marks or by making your own chart. If you have your own printer you can download and print this chart (RED TED Chart).
Celebrate reaching reading milestones by sharing a picture of your chart with your teacher on Evidence Me. Please refer to the Reading section below for a list of websites offering a range of online books and read alouds.
The Department for Education have written and recorded online lessons presented by phonics experts. These are designed to cover new phonics teaching that children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.
Three sets of lessons will be available. One set for Reception and one for Year 1, based on where children are expected to be in their learning in the summer term. A third set of lessons focuses on extra blending practice which is an area that some children find the most challenging.
