Good Morning Team Oak!                                                                  Date: 24.06.20


Thank you for continuing to send in your work, it is so lovely to see. We hope you have enjoyed the start of the week.


As we have been unable to take a class photo this year, we thought it might be a nice idea if we tried to make one (albeit slightly differently!). If you would like your child to be in an ‘Oak Class Photo’ please send in a photo (just head and shoulders) and we will do our best to make a class photo that we can send out via email. If you send in a photo of your child, you are giving us permission to use the photo as part of the class picture to send out to other members of the class.


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)
  • English: Today we will be thinking about our story plans – we have already thought about the beginning of the story with how we came across our buckets as well as the setting. Draw the rest of the story including the middle and end, writing a caption underneath each section. Remember a caption is a very short sentence.
  • Phonics:Complete the SPaG sheet.
  • Handwriting: Practise writing the tricky words: people, called, asked, put, are
  • Maths - White Rose – Session 3

Other activities your child might like to have a go at:

  • Art/DT: Create your own underwater 3D scene with an egg box. What skills did you use? Cutting, sticking, tearing, threading, painting, colouring etc
  • Science: Explore different trees with the attached PP. Go on a tree hunt with the attached sheet. What is the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees?
  • PE: Have a look at the rainbow games and take part – write down your score.


We hope that you all enjoy your day. Take care,

Mrs Carey and Mrs Boyes
