Early Years children visit RSPB Nature Reserve for 'Mini Beasts' topic

A group of Early Years children enhanced their learning on a current topic with a special visit to a prominent North Wales landmark.

The Rydal Penrhos contingent travelled to the nearby RSPB Nature Reserve in Llandudno Junction on Tuesday, June 19, where they participated in a series of different activities based on their project surrounding their ‘Mini Beast’ project.

They based their visit around pond dipping, working in groups to examine the various pond life situated on the vast site.

The children used nets and magnifiers to look closer at the species they discovered, and reported their findings to Nature Reserve staff after their task had concluded.

Staff member Nicola Taylor, said: “This was great for our children to be able to do by themselves for them to be independent in dipping the nets and discovering their findings.

“They were able to discuss what they found in small groups and work great as a team. Discovering pond life and habitats was a great way to extend their learning and knowledge of the world through exploring and investigating.”

This is the latest in a series of trips organised by Rydal Penrhos’ dedicated Early Years staff throughout the academic year, which gives them the best possible foundation from which to build as they ready themselves for Prep School.
