English not your home language? No problem!
Everything we do at Loughton Manor First School is based on our aim "building a life-long love of learning in a safe and happy school." We try our hardest to live out this belief in all our work and play.

Monkeys Planning for week beginning 24th September
We have had lots of fun in Monkeys class this week, getting to know each other and trying new things. The children have been learning lots of new action songs which they may be able to share with you at home. Next week the children will be continuing with settling activities and beginning to learn the routine of the school day. Please make sure that your child has named wellies in school and brings a coat each day.
Zebras, Pandas and Tigers Planning for week beginning 24th September
The children have settled really well and are getting used to all the new routines.
Next week our theme will be "All About Me" with a focus on our family.
In Literacy our focus text will be "The Great Big Book of Families" by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith. The children will be drawing and labelling the people in their family and then making and decorating a frame for their masterpiece.
In Maths, we will be looking closely at the numbers 4 and 5 and representing them in different ways.
In Phonics, the children will explore the sounds 't' and 'p' and begin to make simple words using the letters and sounds they have learnt already.
Please could we remind that the children need a pair of wellies and a coat which are named as Forest School has started and the weather is beginning to change.
The children also need their PE kit in school.
Tigers have PE on Tuesday.
Zebras have PE on Wednesday.
Pandas have PE on Friday.
One final reminder is to please write your child's name on everything they bring into school as we have already had several misplaced jumpers with no names in.
Thank you for all your support.
The Foundation Stage team.
Year 1 Planning for week beginning 16 July
Year 2 Planning for week beginning 24th September
We hope you all had a lovely summer! The children have quickly settled into Year 2 and we're sure they have told you all about it!
Since the beginning of term we have been enjoying hearing children read for the first time. Please can the reading diaries children had from year one be in their school bag at all times as we will continue to use these.
Just a reminder that children's PE kits need to be in school at all times. As the weather is still nice we are doing PE outside, so please make sure children have trainers alongside their normal PE kit. If your child wears earrings, please make sure that they have earring tape (microporous tape) in their PE bag.
In English this week we will be reading a new text - 'Come away from the water, Shirley' by John Burningham. We will be making predictions based on what we have read so far and sequencing main events from the story. Children will also need to be able to use their imagination to write captions for parts of the story where there are no words!
In Maths, we will be consolidating our learning of place value and beginning our learning of addition. We will begin by using concrete resources to add two numbers together.
This week in Geography children will be learning about where they live within our world. Children will learn about their local area which they live in.
We are extremely lucky to have Hazard Alley visiting us next Thursday to run an e-safety workshop. All children will learn about the importance of e-safety and complete some activities relating to their learning.
