Welcome to Ladybirds!

This is Ladybirds class page and here you will find lots of exciting information about our class.


Hello, my name is Mrs Quilliam and I am the class teacher. We also have Mrs Gillibrand working with us. 

We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children into our school and have exciting things planned!

Autumn One

Our enquiry question for our first half term is


'Do you want to be friends?'

 At Longshaw it is very important to us that the children and happy and settled in their new school. To help with this we spend time getting to know the children's likes and dislikes, help them to develop friendships with each other and teach them the routines of the day.

Within the first few weeks our primary focus is getting the children to enjoy coming to school by planning and implementing lots of exciting activities.  



  How you can help at home 


Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters. 

Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards.

Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share these with you. 

Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.

Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.


Please ensure that children bring their bookbags in every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out.


Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!!

You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.

Mrs Quilliam
