Early Years children at Rydal Penrhos boosted their learning on a classroom topic thanks to specially arranged visit.
The group visited Pili Palas Nature World on Tuesday, June 19, which is situated on the Isle of Anglesey and was organised with a view to improving each child’s knowledge surrounding their ‘Mini Beasts’ topic.
During their trip, the group learnt more about the wide range of wildlife situated at the site, while also getting the chance to find out more about the life cycle of a butterfly.
They even got the chance to get up close and personal with some of the more exotic animals, with staff providing them with an opportunity to touch a snake, cockroaches, giant millipedes and farmyard animals.
This was followed by an opportunity to play in their vast outdoor area to round off another very successful trip for the department, which continues to thrive under the leadership of programme leader Louise Roberts and her dedicated team of staff.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “The Early Years’ Mini Beasts topic has really captured the imagination of each child at the department, and I know they got a tremendous amount from seeing some creatures they had been learning about in person at the fantastic Pili Palas Nature World.
“Mrs Roberts and her team do an outstanding job of giving the children a perfect platform from which to build when they eventually enter Prep School officially, and this is something that has brought with it a great deal of success in recent years.”
