Shaftesbury Junior School

We care, we share, for the future we prepare


Welcome to our 4S Class Page!


4S started 2023 with wonderful curiosity! In our Spring term, I was impressed with the enthusiasm and confidence our children had in their swimming lessons. We saw great progress made by all! It was also fantastic to share the effort our class put into learning the recorder, with parents in a class assembly.

Since the start of the Summer term, we have all enjoyed Kate DiCamillo's Because of Winn-Dixie from which the children produced some great pieces of writing. I'm looking forward to sharing another novel with our class after half term, whilst exploring the Vikings and Sound in topic and science. We will be focusing on time and shape in maths, whilst also preparing for and carrying out the Multiplication Tables Check - please keep practising your 1 - 12 times-tables 4S!


Take care,

Mrs Stabik



Here you will find key information about what we will be learning at school and any work you may need to complete at home.



PE: We have PE on a Monday morning and Friday afternoon this term so please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days. 


Reading: Please read at home as often as you can (every day if possible) and fill in a line of your reading miles sheet, after every read. You need to bring any books back to school once you have finished reading them so they can be swapped.

We will test spellings every Monday. At the end of the day, you will take home your new spellings to learn for the following week.
