Shaftesbury Junior School

We care, we share, for the future we prepare


Welcome to our 4S Class Page!


4S started year 4 with great enthusiasm and confidence! In our Autumn term I was impressed with the hard work and progress they demonstrated in maths and it was so lovely to hear everyone sharing their creativity, experiences and opinions in topic. I am looking forward to starting the Spring term with our first book in English that I'm sure will excite and intrigue everyone! We will also be exploring the work of William Shakespeare in our daily class read sessions, once we have finished our book from last term.


I wish you all a happy and healthy 2023.


Mrs Stabik
