Welcome toLongshaw Community Infant School and Longshaw Nursery School Learning • Caring • Inspiring • Succeeding




Welcome to Ladybirds Class!



My name is Mrs Hill and I am the Class Teacher and we are lucky to have Miss Davis working in our class too!


Throughout the week we will have lots of other adults working in our class helping to support our learning. Mrs Rigby, Hedgehog and Mr Pilkington will become familiar to you as they enhance our learning with sports, outdoor activities and music.


Please feel free to ask any questions!

I am on the door in the morning and at home time so please do come and speak with me.

Things to Remember...


  • Children need a coat with them every single day. If the weather is nice, children are fine to leave their coats in school during playtimes
  • We will have PE on a Thursday and all children will need a full PE kit in school to use. Children will need shorts, t-shirt and pumps and all items of clothing will need to be labelled.
  • Handwriting Books will be given out on a Friday with a few letters for children to rehearse and practise at home. Books will need to be returned to school and completed by Thursday.
  • The expectation is that Reading book bags need to come into school every day and reading at home needs to take place daily. Please sign inside the Reading Record once you have read with your child. They will be rewarded with Dojo Points in class for any Reading they do at home.
