Shaftesbury Junior School

We care, we share, for the future we prepare


Welcome to our 4S Class Page!


4S have started year 4 by demonstrating respect, curiosity and confidence! I have been impressed with their maturity in assembly and the kindness and support they show each other in class. 


We began the new term by reading The Tin Forest by Helen Ward - a beautiful story which really captured the children's imaginations! We've also been enjoying the works of the hilarious Michael Rosen who is our SJS author of the term.


I am very excited to be on this journey through year 4 with our class.


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 now have PE on a Thursday morning and Friday afternoon this term so please come to school wearing your PE kit on those 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 your books into school every day. Please ensure they are returned to our library once you have finished reading them so they can be swapped. Year 4, you can change your books on a Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime. 


Homework: Every week, you need to complete any homework given out - see homework choices document below. Please stick your homework in your homework book and bring it in by Wednesday. You will take your homework book home with your on Friday


Spellings: Please ensure you practise your spellings every week. This includes learning the spelling pattern, learning the definition and being able to use the word in a sentence. 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.


Times-tables: Please, please ensure you practise your times-tables regularly. If you have access to an internet enabled device, enjoy playing Times Tables Rockstars – a fun way to practise and compete against your classmates! You can also practise your times-tables on Purple Mash, Literacy Gold and other apps and online sites such as the Top Maths Hit The Button game. Memorising times-tables will help support you in all areas of maths in year 4 and the rest of primary and secondary school.
