Year 1 – 1H and 1M

Welcome to our Year 1 Information Page


1H are taught by Miss Heilbron

1M are taught by Mrs Miller

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Garner & Miss Cashmore in 1M and Miss Chalkley in 1H


At Sir Henry Fermor we pride ourselves in Year One as a team working closely and consultatively with each other making sure there is a consistent approach. With this in mind we are being Location Detectives as we exploring our local surroundings incorporating the works and drawings of AA Milne and EH Shepherd and in particular the books on Winnie the Pooh and A Hundred Acre Wood.




We would like you to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record any comments in your child’s Reading Record Book. These comments may be used to help support our judgments later in the year. Please also try to ask your children questions about the title, the pictures and what they have read to check for comprehension.


Please remember, books only get changed when the book has been read 3 time, this is a crucial year 1 objective as it helps with their fluency and accuracy development. Once the books have been returned they will be placed in a decontamination box for 48 hours before being assigned to the next child.



  • PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays (swimming). Swimming will resume in due course but not this term (as per the email from Mrs Strand).
  • Children must have the appropriate house colour top or the old style red tops, plain blue shorts, plain blue or black jogging trousers and plain trainers for PE.
  • We will be having lessons outside when possible so you may wish to provide a zip-up top or jumper.

Please ensure all kit etc. is named clearly. This then makes it easier to reunite lost items with their owners.



Forest School will continue on alternative weeks - further details to follow in due course.



We thorough enjoy art and the children are encouraged to explore their creative sides right across the curriculum. In addition we have some great art and design projects coming up this year. Art will mainly be on a Monday or Tuesday although on some occasions when we have a bigger project this may continue over a few afternoons.  We have a selection of art aprons/shirts for the children to wear but may we request that if you have any old adult shirts that you would be happy to donate to Year 1 we would really appreciate it as we want to minimise any mess to their uniforms where possible.



Homework will be set every Wednesday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. This will consist mainly of phonic practise and spelling. We will begin to send out homework once they have settled in later this term.


In addition each term we will be giving the children an opportunity to complete a big "project" for homework - further details to come.


Unfortunately, due to the current Covid 19 situation we are unable to invite parents in to read with the children but as soon as these restrictions are lifted we would welcome any volunteers.
