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 One Hundred Acre Woods.

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.
Homework will be set every Thursday and will be due in on the following Thursday.
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.
