Prep 4 took a trip to Tesco Extra in Barnstaple where they underwent the tricky Maths challenge of having to plan a meal for four people with only £10.00 to spend. This was a great opportunity for pupils to better develop their Maths skills and for them to learn a little more about the value of money.

Pupils were also allowed to have a look behind the scenes in the Barnstaple store and enjoyed a cheese-tasting session.

Monday saw WBS musicians and Headmaster, Mr Stapleton take to the stage to perform in the Winter Concert. Students performed with gusto and the opening chords of Star Wars blew the audience away. There were a great selection of solo performances, especially those from Year 10s, Isobel B, Douglas T and Natalie C and all enjoyed the fun and relaxation of the evening. Mulled punch and mince pies were on offer to get everyone in the mood for the impending Christmas season.

WBS came in 4th place overall at the Senior Inter-Schools Climbing competition held at Rock and Rapid, South Molton over the weekend.

The team of five pupils, Sandy C, Zac J and Henry M (entered into the Year 7-9 boys category) and Callum B and Amy B (competing in the Year 10-13 age group) were met with a set of bouldering problems, each one progressively harder than the last and the top roping competition, each climbing three challenging routes.

There were top 5 finishes for Zac (5th) and Henry (4th) in the strongly contested Year 7-9 boys group and congratulations to Amy who came 2nd in the Girls Year 10-13 category. Well done to all who took part.
