Our Tremendous Y4 Trip to St James Church

posted 14 Dec 2016, 23:55 by Tetherdown Primary

On Friday 2nd December 2016 Year 4 Jaguar and Leopard Class went on a brilliant trip to St James Church nativity workshop. We all came home with smiling, cheery faces as it was extremely fun and fascinating. This is what happened:

First, we entered the main hall where colour-in Christmas story wheels were awaiting, ready to be decorated. We were split into two groups. Group one was the first to enter the first set with Zakharia The Prophet. Meanwhile, group two waited patiently as they coloured in their Christmas wheels.


In the first section we entered, Zakharia The Prophet was foretelling the future and telling us the first part of the story before we walked into the next set. It was very interesting as I didn’t even know this part of the story.


Secondly, we entered the Mary and Gabriel scene. A lady dressed up as Mary showed us what was, apparently, her engagement ring.  Then an angel shape was projected on the wall as a speaker said what Gabriel told Mary in the story.  Next, we entered the fascinating set with the innkeeper and scroll. We sang a song and she told us more about the story before we quickly wrote our names down on the scroll.


Afterwards, we met the shepherd and his sheep beside a fake but very realistic fire. Soon we had entered the ‘King’s Room’ where he asked us about where Jesus was. Later, we rushed into the stables where loads of live animals were roaming around in a pen. We got to feed them and it was very entertaining but before long we were ushered into the next set. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and have learnt more about the Christmas story.
