Holiday Club puts Forest School to good use with barefoot trail activity

Holiday Club members at Rydal Penrhos have been putting a prep school are to good use with a special activity.

The young pupils took part in a special barefoot trail at the site’s Forest School recently, where they navigated a sensory course with the guidance of staff after being blindfolded.

There were a host of things to step on and get through to complete the course, including stepping in paint, fur carpet and mystery containers.

The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences.

Rydal Penrhos’ Forest School programme originated in Scandinavia and is underpinned by thorough research into the learning behaviour of children at an early age and how best to develop this.

Deputy head Alison Hind, said: “Our Forest School is a fantastic method of learning outside of the classroom for our pupils, and it is great to see our Holiday Club making full use of the area during the summer break.

“The club is designed to make sure our pupils get the most out of their holidays by testing their skills and providing learning opportunities they may not receive during normal school time.

“Many thanks to our hard working staff for continuing to provide a fun-filled and testing programme.”
