The school hosted the Carnegie Book Award Shadowing Event in the 150 theatre yesterday, where local schools came with teams of pupils to make presentations on chosen books as part of the scheme. We were delighted to welcome Mitch Johnson, the visiting author this year who gave a talk on his writing experiences and his newly published book, 'Kick'.
West Buckland students were the first group to present their thoughts, covering the book 'Rook' by Anthony McGowan. Great presentations were given by all the schools attending but it was Pilton School who won reflecting on 'After the Fire' by Will Hill.
During half term week, students from Years 7 - 9 travelled to Gredos, Spain where they had an enriching cultural and learning experience including a master-class on how to cook Spanish tortillas, practicing their archery and hearing about how the local ecosystems work.
An intensive, immersive and fun experience en español.
More photos of the trip to Gredos can be found on our Facebook page.
The school had a brilliant three days at the Royal Cornwall Show last week. Art and DT projects were showcased on the WBS stand and were appreciated by all that passed through.
Thank you to those that came to visit the stand - parents, friends, students and alumni.
The school were host to a successful Exeter Chiefs half term rugby camp on Tuesday 29th May, which allowed both boys and girls the opportunity to play and learn the game. Skills and drills were covered by the Chiefs Community team who came in to the school to train the 7 -14 year olds.
