Early Years children conducted their very own Act of Remembrance as part of their latest Coastal School session.
The youngest members of the Rydal Penrhos community took part in the special commemoration on Friday, November 9, which followed the short Remembrance Service that was impeccably observed on the Prep School playground earlier in the day.
During the event, they talked about the importance of why we wear poppies and why there are other coloured poppies.
Children were made aware that there are not just red poppies but also purple and white for the animals that passed away during the two world wars that have left a significant mark on both the school’s and human history.
This was followed by a creative activity which involved the group making their own purple and red poppies by printing with beach materials found on the strand line such and seaweed and shells.
They then created their own 3D image of a poppy which the children helped stick into position with crepe paper and black seaweed.
Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “This was a very worthwhile exercise for our Early Years children and a great way for them to learn more about the importance of Remembrance and what sacrifices have been made long before them.
“Our staff team do an exceptional job during their Coastal School sessions, which is one of many exciting learning initiatives we have devised here at Rydal Penrhos to give each child under a care with the best possible foundation before they head off on the next stage of their education.”
