Monkeys Planning for week beginning 15th July


Next week is our last week of school and we will be continuing with our summer themed activities.  We will be reading Winnie at the Seaside by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul.  We will be talking about how a story has a beginning, middle and end.


Our teddy bears picnic is on Friday 19th July at 11.30-12.30pm and all Monkeys are welcome to bring a named teddy and bring a packed lunch to eat outside.  The morning children need to be collected as usual at 11.30am and may stay with their parent for the picnic and the afternoon children are welcome to come at 11.30am.


Thank you for all your support this year, we have loved working with your children.


Zebras, Pandas and Tigers Planning for week beginning 15th July


Next week is our final week before the Summer holidays so naturally our theme for the week is Summer.


In Literacy the children will be writing recipes for how to make smoothies.


In Maths, we will be solving sports day problems and carrying out an investigation into ice cream flavours.


Our role play area will transform into an ice cream parlour. The children will also have the chance to explore bubbles and ice next week via various activities.


On Monday it is our annual Sports day so please could the children come to school dressed in their PE kit equipped with their named water bottle, sun hat and sun cream already applied. The event starts at about 9.30 am within the school grounds.


Monday night is also the Year One Induction evening starting at 6.00 pm.


On Monday afternoon the children are having a Teddy Tennis taster session in school and on Wednesday morning they will be having a taster archery session. Thank you to Mrs Mumford for organising these exciting events.


On Friday 17th July at 11.30 am is our end of year Teddy Bears’ Picnic. Please could your child bring a named Teddy that they can easily carry into school with them on Friday morning for this event.


All that remains for us to say is a huge thank you for all your support throughout the year. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with your children and watching them grow and flourish this year. We wish you all a very relaxing and happy holiday.

Year 1 Planning for week beginning 15th July


We can hardly believe that next week is our last week together in Year One.  Monday is our Fun Sports Morning.  We will be aiming to start at 9.25am.  Please make sure that your child has appropriate clothing and shoes in school, i.e. plimsolls or trainers. In our maths lessons we will be carrying out an Investigation over a period of lessons.  On Wednesday the children will be taking part in an archery enrichment session.  On Friday your child is allowed to bring a teddy in for their Teddy Bears’ Picnic.  The children will have a school picnic lunch provided for them on this day so they do not need to bring lunch on this day.


Please could your child bring in a named carrier bag on Monday for us to send their books home in later on in the week. Thank you.


Please remember to return your library books by the end of term.  Also, there is still a lot of lost property in our cloakroom area.  Please check to see if anything belongs to your child.  Thank you.


If your child gets any medals, certificates or trophies from, for example a sporting, music or dance achievement, we would love to celebrate this in our Friday assemblies.  Do let us know, please.


Year 2 Planning for week beginning 15th July


The final week of the school year has arrived and we’ll be busy as ever in Year 2 ensuring all the children have all of their belongings ready to take with them on the last day of term.

The children will be completing a writing activity where they will record some of their best memories at Loughton Manor First School.

In maths this week, the children will complete a variety of activities that consolidate all of their learning throughout the year.

Tuesday afternoon is our Leavers’ party which is kindly organised by the Friends of Loughton Manor First School. If your child would like to bring a change of clothes for the afternoon party, they are very welcome to however this is not necessary.

On Wednesday we are very lucky to be able to take part in an enrichment activity. Each child will have a go at archery!

Friday the 19th of July is a busy day for Year 2. As per the parent mail sent yesterday, we will have our Leavers’ Celebration at Loughton Baptist Church.  Children are to arrive at the church at 8.45 for a prompt start at 9am.  Parents, friends and other relatives are welcome to join us in our celebrations.  Staff will walk the children back to school after the celebration has taken place.

Also on Friday, your child is allowed to bring a teddy in for the Teddy Bears’ Picnic.  The children will have a school picnic lunch provided for them by our caterers. Year 2 parents are welcome to join us if they fancy a picnic with their child - there’s no expectation for you to attend though!

Please could we ask that all library books borrowed from our school library are returned for other children to enjoy, along with the colour banded reading books the children take home.

Can we also ask that your child brings in a named carrier bag on Monday for us to send their books home later in the week. Thank you.

It has been lovely to teach your children this year and we wish them the very best of luck in their new schools!
