Today in Forest School P4 completed a literacy task, in which they had to use materials to represent fiction, make a fiction story and use describing words for their fictional characters. Children were split into groups and one 'leader' from each group was given a container. The group had to collect a small amount of material which was placed in the container and missed together to make a 'potion.' The children then all gathered together to discuss their potions (what they were called, what they did).
Next, the groups had to decide on a fictional character that lived in the forest. Once they had decided on their character, they had to build a den for the character.
The forest school lesson was concluded with the usual evaluation session.

The girls’ hockey team have had a busy week with hockey tournaments and league matches.
The girls won their league and are now through to the ‘Super League’, which they won last year.
We had the Mid-Ulster tournament and topped our group. The girls played Seagoe in the semi-finals. It was a tough match but Seagoe dominated the game and justly went through to win the overall trophy.
Our next tournament was at Lurgan College for ‘Aspire Hockey.’ The girls played five teams and ended up winning the tournament.
We were so proud when one of our girls won a trophy for ‘Player of the tournament’. A huge congratulations to her.
We look forward to further tournaments during the season.
