Year 4 travel to St Peter’s church to ‘follow the star!’

Written by Rosie (4D), Edward (4W) and Aiden (4F)

On Friday 25th November, Year 4 travelled to St Peter’s church for the Star Trail. They completed a trail following in the footsteps of the three wise men to find baby Jesus. Year 4 all learned about the Christmas story with a range of fun activities. They got to collect gold, smell frankincense and explore the healing qualities of myrrh (but they all say that their favourite part was decorating star shaped cookies!). Here are some things that some of the participants had to say:

“I really liked decorating and colouring in some drawings.” Edward 4W

“I liked doing the trail and decorating the cookies.” Aiden 4F

“I enjoyed looking and exploring items on the discovery table. You had a question sheet and got to answer the questions all about them.” Rosie 4D.

So if you’re looking to start feeling festive, we would highly recommend this trip! 

 Year 4 have enjoyed creating salt-dough Christmas decorations

Viking Long Boats

Year 4 have been learning about the Vikings and making boats –is there a new invasion?

Blackout Poetry

As part of our World Book Day activities, we created ‘Blackout Poems’.


Year 4 have also been looking at the work of Seurat and exploring pointillism. What incredible detail they have captured!

Sketches inspired by the words and illustrations found within the inspirational reads of The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy and Big Panda and Tiny Dragon by James Norbury.

Coronation learning and activities in year4 included learning about previous coronations, the Crown jewels and the Union Jack as well creating our own crowns and flags.
