In Forest School this week, we connected art with mathematics. The children were set the task to create concentric circle pictures, using only the materials they could find on the ground around them. They worked in groups of four to create their pictures and had to choose location, design and manage their time on the task.

Last Friday our rugby team travelled to Campbell College for their 2019 Mini Rugby Festival.
The boys played Carrickmannon PS in their first game and came away victors scoring a few nice tries. Their next opponent was Moneyrea PS, a bigger team who were very strong. Our team played well together and grew into the game but unfortunately were defeated. The last game was against Friend's Prep, and at this point the boys were really starting to gel and put in a perfect performance to win the game.
The team this year was a mixture of experienced rugby boys and boys who have never played rugby before. We were delighted to see how well they played together and worked on creating a true team spirit.
A huge thankyou must be given to the Rev Hawthorne who helped with the after schools rugby and to prepare the team for this tournament. Thanks also go to the parents who came along to cheer the boys on and who provided lifts.
We also want to thank Campbell College for their hospitality, providing burgers, drinks and a T-shirt to all players.
Well done to all involved.
There were some amazing hair styles on parade at WPS during Crazy Hair Day. The children gathered for a full school assembly where they could display their artistic styles!

This week in Forest School the P4s were learning about area. After they had made 2D shapes, they had to measure the area using leaves, petals or pine cones. This was developed when each group was given a set of cubes, so that the area could be measured using a standard unit.
