The department has partnered with Channel Nine to deliver reading@home TV to support language and literacy development for children in Kindergarten to Year 3.

In collaboration with the Reading Centre, the program features reading coaches and children’s authors, reading books aloud and facilitating interactive learning experiences.

The show encourages students to get involved in the 2020 Premier's Reading Challenge.

reading@home TV airs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8.30–9.00am on Channel 9Go.

The final episode of reading@home TV will air Thursday 4 June 2020.

Although students are now back in the classroom, these lessons are a great teaching and learning resource.

Episodes are also available on-demand, and on the department’s YouTube channel so they can continue to be used by teachers, students and parents.
