Early Years children at Rydal Penrhos have been taking part on a host of different activities as part of their current topic surrounding the climate.
The youngest members of the Prep School community, together with passionate and dedicated staff operating at the facility, took advantage of Rydal Penrhos’ stunning location on the Colwyn Bay coastline for their Weather topic throughout the half term.
This has involved a series of testing and fun-filled tasks such as making wind turners, in addition to making and flying a kite.
They have also been participating in a series of thought-provoking discussions regarding the sun, wind, frost ice and snow, and the group enhanced their learning on the subject outdoors during the Coastal and Forest School sessions.
The aim of the Early Years Department is to provide the children with a welcoming, safe, happy and stimulating environment in which they can thrive and develop at their own pace, socially, physically, emotionally and academically.
The children are encouraged to be self-motivated and independent, yet aware of their peers. The Early Years is a bridge from home to school and an introduction to the more structured environment they will encounter in Reception.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our incredible Early Years staff put together an extremely impressive programme relating to their Weather topic, and it is something the children really got a lot out of and thoroughly enjoyed.
“This is a critical time in a child’s development and to see them thriving and going from strength-to-strength is a testament to their attitude and the solid foundation they receive here at Rydal Penrhos.”
