Good Morning Team Oak!                                                                  Date: 09.06.20



We enjoyed reading your sentences about your favourite Michael Rosen poems 'I don't like custard' ,'Chocolate cake'

 and 'Fast Food' were some of your favourites! We have seen some fantastic handwriting happening, well done Oak - we are very impressed with your careful cursive and spectacular spellings. You have also been working hard identifying some awesome alliteration - I wonder if you can find any in this email?! Keep up the fantastic learning both at school and at home. Remember to do what works for you and your families when it comes to your learning at home and we are always here to support you.



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)


  • Have a look at another Michael Rosen poem. (Theme – food)
  • Children to think of either their favourite food, or a food they really don’t like. Mind map ideas about this food – what adjectives can you use to describe this food? What does it look like/taste/smell/feel/sound like?





  • White rose - Summer Term - Week 7 (w/c 8th June)

Lesson 2 - Count in 5's



  • Practise spelling 5 different colours; White, blue, black, red, orange, yellow, green, silver etc
  • To support your child with their cursive handwriting at home take a look at the 'Letter Join' website. This is the scheme of handwriting that we use at school. The log on details are:

  • Using purple mash, create a mammal. What makes it a mammal?



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!
