Early Years children make most of stunning location during busy week

Early Years children at Rydal Penrhos have enjoyed a host of different learning activities over the last week.

The group have been benefitting from the exceptional programme put on by Louise Roberts and her committed staff, which has seen them make the very most out of the stunning location that the school is situated in.

Last week saw them spend some time at Rydal Penrhos’ unique Forest School, where they were tasked with creating and painting some of their own animal paw prints just a stone’s throw away from the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay.

Qualified Coastal teaching instructor Nikki Taylor then took the group down to the picturesque Bay coastline on the search for some real-life animal prints, before working as a team to make their own using beach materials with some fantastic overall results.

Their literacy work in the classroom involved drawing a series of pictures to correct letter sound, in addition to recognising and matching animal prints in numeracy groups during the week.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “Mrs Roberts and her team at the Early Years department are always looking for innovative ways to give each child the perfect platform to live and learn to the best of their ability, which has seen some outstanding projects and results during the current academic year.

“We strive to make the most of our fantastic location on the North Wales coastline, and things like our Coastal School are truly unique and give the children a new perspective that they may not necessarily develop inside the classroom.”
