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 Miss Bawcombe and Mrs Brown


At Sir Henry Fermor we pride ourselves in Key Stage One as a team working closely and consultatively with our Year 2 colleagues and children making sure there is a consistent approach. With this in mind Key Stage One are exploring 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.



  • PE lessons will take place on Tuesday (if the class is not swimming that term), Thursday (if swimming) and Fridays (both classes).
  • Swimming will be alternate terms as follows: 1M – Terms 1, 3 & 5.  1H – Terms 2, 4 & 6, (please speak to the office if you are able to help with this).
  • 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.



We continue with Forest School throughout your child’s education at Sir Henry Fermor. In Year 1 the children will participate on a Wednesday morning on alternate terms as follows: 1H & 1M – Terms 1, 3 & 5.  The classes will do alternate weeks – further details of how this will work and appropriate clothing for the activities will follow shortly in a separate letter.



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 Friday 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 Tuesday and will be due in on the following Tuesday.


As always we welcome parents who would be willing and able to come in either first thing in the morning or in the afternoon to listen to some of the children read, we would be hugely grateful.
