Return to Children

Year 4


Welcome to 4C’s Makaton edition of Away in a Manger.  We may be faced with restrictions but we will not be silenced, even Denton joined in!

We share our Christmas spirit through the marvellous media of sign.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year 

From 4C and Denton 




This year, as we were not allowed to sing in class, we chose to learn how to sign instead.

We learned the song ‘It was on a Starry Night’ using the sign language Makaton.  We hope you enjoy it.

These self-portraits were created in a cubist style.  Each as 2 view points mixed together and coloured using half warm and half cold colours.



Covid restrictions have meant that we haven’t been able to sing Christmas songs in school this year but that hasn’t stopped 4W from getting into the Christmas spirit. The whole class have worked so hard to learn the Makaton signs for the song ‘All I want for Christmas is you”. The children have made their teachers so incredibly proud! We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed performing it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!



Friendship Box

The children in each class have the opportunity to write acts of kindness on a piece of paper and place it in the class ‘Friendship Box’.  During Friday assembly the teacher draws one out and reads it out to the whole school via our Teams Assembly.

 4C – For Steffy, “She always makes me laugh when we play outside” from Cara.
