PRIMARY school children paid a visit to Roanhead Beach to find Stars for an interactive activity related to their book project.

Youngsters from St George’s CofE Primary School were inspired after the class read ‘How to Catch a Star’ by Oliver Jeffers.

The trip consisted of finding starfish on the beach alongside learning more about the sea creatures as well as interpreting the meaning behind the book.

The reception children and class teacher Karen Sturgeon wrapped up warm as they braved the cold weather and endeavoured for the sake of their project.

The idea behind the trip was so that the children could find their own stars, which were placed by teachers for them to find, and to decide whether the book by Oliver Jeffers is meaning starfish or stars in the sky.

Teacher Karen Sturgeon said: “They had a wonderful time and the children had a lot of questions about the project and the beach.

“The children loved being outside, and we quite a lot of work outside here which really works well.

“We will be working on this for a couple of weeks by designing stars, writing, much more linking to the book.”

The book is about the inspirational story of a boy who loved the stars so much, he decided to catch one of his very own.
