Ladybirds Class 2019/2020

 Hello, my name is Mrs Quilliam and I am the class teacher within Ladybirds Class. We also have Mrs Gillibrand working with us and we are both extremely excited for this year. Shortly Mrs Shaw will be joining us to teach Ladybirds class as Mrs Quilliam leaves to have her baby!

This is our class page where you can find out all the information about the term and any dates you will need. There is also the class blog which is updated weekly with pictures and videos of the learning we have been doing during that week.

Also follow our school Twitter page @longshawinfants for even more exciting things that happen throughout the school!



Spring One:

Can you explore with me?

 This half term the children will become intrepid explorers, travelling to places far and wide through an amazing variety of stories!

They will discuss what an explorer is, what they might need, and the places they might visit.

They will then set off on their journey, taking them to places such as the jungle, the arctic, space and under the sea. As they visit the different places through stories, they will develop their knowledge of the setting and the vocabulary that goes with it. The children will make their own 'passports' and as they travel to different places they will get to add to their passports.

In Maths we will consolidate our knowledge of numbers to 20. We will be problem solving with these numbers, as well as learning about subtraction and addition.

We will also learn about length, height and weight, looking at the vocabulary associated with these concepts.




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.
