Welcome to 3J's Class Page!


3J have made a fantastic start to life at Shaftesbury Junior School. I have been impressed with the resilience they have all shown for themselves as well as the care and support they show others. The class are very enthusiastic and excited to learn and they have immersed themselves into the curriculum. I am looking forward to continue working with them during the exciting Spring and Summer terms!

In topic this term we are learning about life in the Stone Age. We are learning when this happened in history, how they lived, comparing their lives to ours and seeing how things developed.


At Shaftesbury Junior School, we follow the White Rose program in Maths. We began this term with a unit on Place Value and Addition & Subtraction.


So far we have read Into The Forest. We will write letters, described settings and created a missing person profile. Later this term, we will focus on character descriptions and work on our vocabulary choices.


Autumn term begun by looking at rocks and soils.


We are currently looking at the early acquisition of the language and working on the pronunciation of the vowels.
