Ladycross Infant and Nursery School

Welcome to Class 3!

Meet the team

Class 3's teachers are Mrs Robertson and Mrs Jackson.  Mrs Robertson works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Mrs Jackson works on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  Our fabulous teaching assistant is Miss Garbett.   She works in Class 3 full time. 

At Ladycross Infant and Nursery school we have designed the curriculum to inspire the children and promote a love of learning. We plan exciting practical experiences and visits to widen the children's understanding of topics. We are also lucky to have a wealth of visitors that come into school to bring learning alive. 

Useful Information

Our PE days are currently on a Monday and Thursday. Children do not require a PE kit at the moment.
The children take part in reading activities every day and they need their reading books in school every day. Thank you for all your support reading with your child at home - it makes a huge difference!

Spellings are tested on a Wednesday. Please continue to support your child in learning these each week.
