P4G had a special Forest School lesson today as they displayed what we do to a group of Stranmillis PGCE Students accompanied by Mrs McClelland and Dr Greenwood. As P4G has been looking at maps in their 'Life in the Recent Past' topic, it got us talking about birds eye and aerial views. The children, after completing a perimeter walk of the school last week, had to design an aerial view of the school grounds using only the materials around them.
Each group had a chance to talk about what they made and were questioned by their classmates, encouraging using cross curricular skills and many of the thinking skills and personal capabilities as outlined in the NI Curriculum.
The children also spoke with the visiting students and were great ambassadors for Waringstown Primary School. We're very proud of how well they listened and behaved.

Today in Forest School we wrapped up warm (as it was 1 degree) and took part in a Scavenger Hunt. The children worked in pairs to find something prickly, something smooth, something shiny, something waxy, something round and something bendy. After this, the pairs joined together into groups of six and created a picture of a forest animal. Listening to the children explain their pictures was very interesting and brought up things such as "resources we used" and "aerial or birdseye view." Although cold, the children enjoyed being outside once again.

The ‘A Team’ and ‘B Team’ recently headed to Banbridge High School to play in the League Tournament.
The A Team’s first match was against Cookstown and they had a convincing 6-0 win. Their next match was against Edenderry Banbridge, it was a tough match with both sides playing exceptional hockey. After a hard fought battle the final score was 1-1. There were more matches to be played against Abercorn and Dromore . The team played with grit and determination, ending up with another win and a draw. This meant the team finished top of their table with Edenderry, which meant they had qualified into the ‘Super League’ group. An amazing achievement.
The B Team had two great matches against Dromore and Edenderry. They played brilliantly as a team, considering this was their first League Tournament.
Congratulations to all the girls who played in both teams. Take a look through our gallery to see how the girls got on:
