We hope you had a lovely weekend, we’ve really enjoyed receiving photos of your learning over the week. It was great to see your food poems, handwriting, art work and mammal creations. We were inspired by the poetry, so here’s one for you Oak:

This week we will be reading ‘Billy’s Bucket’ and doing a variety of activities based around this text. We look forward to all of your creative and imaginative ideas.



Year 1 Writing Skills

  • Orally rehearse their sentences before forming them.
  • Capital letters at the start of each new sentence. 
  • Use clear spaces between words.
  • Punctuate their sentence using a full stop, question mark or exclamation mark. 
  • Use their phonics knowledge to help them spell many words in a phonically-plausible way.
  • Extend their sentences by using the conjunctions 'and' and 'because'. 
  • Form their letters correctly.
  • We also encourage the children to read back through their writing

Today we would like your child to:



  • Read to you (twice – once this morning and once this afternoon)


  • Read ‘Billy’s Bucket’ by Kes Gray and Garry Pasrons. (
  • Disucuss the story – what did you like about it? What could be better? Write a sentence/book review about the story. (Book review template attached)

You can email photos of your learning to us at: and we will reply to any emails that you send with further challenges and ideas!

If you are a parent of a child in Oak Class, we will be available to respond to you between 9 – 12pm every weekday during this time. Please bear in mind that we both have young children and may not be able to respond to you immediately.


Stay safe, wash your hands and keep learning!



Well done Team Oak!
