  • Curriculum Evening 27 February 7.00 pm

    Published 22/02/18, by Lucy Hazlewood

    On Tuesday 27 February at 7.00 pm, Loughton School is holding another Curriculum Evening.  This is an opportunity to find out what the children are learning in school and discover how best to support your child at home.  Last year, it was very successful, with many parents saying how much they enjoyed the chance to sit with teachers to find out what some of the expectations of the curriculum mean and how they can help their child to meet them.  Please do come along, everyone is welcome.  You do not need to have any knowledge of the curriculum, bring along any questions you have and hopefully we can answer them.

  • Cooking

    Published 09/02/18, by Lucy Hazlewood

    With taste buds tingling, Year 4 came in on a massive high on Thursday 8 February as cooking day was upon us.  The children cooked an exciting array of Indian food including samosas, vegetable curry, chicken biryani, chapatti, masala chai and rice.  Throughout the day, classes wondered past in hair nets and aprons, which the children enjoyed wearing far more than the staff did!  It was such an exciting day and thank you to anyone who helped towards it.  The children loved it, especially eating all of it in the afternoon.

  • Spring Spelling Bee Words

    Published 08/01/18, by Lucy Hazlewood

    It is another new term and the children are already excited to compete in the next spelling bee.  We have split the list of 100 into two lists of 50 which together will be tested at the end of the Spring term.  Ten of the words from the Spelling Bee will be sent out as Spelling Homework and will be tested weekly in class.  We have closely linked the spelling homework and spelling bee words to the spelling we are learning in class so the children's  learning will be embedded.
