Daily Phonics

Phonics is one of the key tools for reading and writing.  At Holy Trinity, we believe that all our children can become fluent readers and writers. This is why we teach reading through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised, which is a systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). We start teaching phonics in Nursery/Reception and follow the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised progression, which ensures children build on their growing knowledge of the alphabetic code, mastering phonics to read and spell as they move through school.

The resources here will help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home. 

 Red Ted

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.

Tapestry

Tapestry is the platform we use in the EYFS to share with you key learning moments that your child has engaged in at school.

Once you have activated your account and set up a secure password and pin you can download the Tapestry Journal app by visiting the App Store or Google Play and log in.

You can view your child’s observations any time by opening the Tapestry Journal app and logging in.

You can also use the app to share home learning with the class teacher. Simply select the '+' symbol at the top right. Select the icon you want to use to record (take a picture, record a video or add a picture from you photo library) and add a brief note explaining what your child has done or what they said. Your observations will automatically be uploaded to the school’s account as long as your device is connected to wi-fi.

Please click on the Tapestry Journal logo for further information and guidance.
