3P

Welcome to 3P's Class Page!

 

3P 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!
