Reception class get creative on Piggery Pottery trip

Reception class pupils at Rydal Penrhos got the chance to make their own pottery items on a recent visit.

The Preparatory School pupils took a trip to the Snowdonia Mountains where they visited Piggery Pottery, situated in Llanberis, as part of their topic on materials on Friday, February 10.

Piggery Pottery is a small, family run business that hand crafts an enormous range of beautiful pottery pieces all of which guests can paint how they wish using their vivid imaginations to create a design they can treasure forever.

There were a host of activities to take part in throughout the day, including painting their own pot, pebble painting, canvas painting, mask painting and slate painting.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: "The group had a fantastic time at Piggery Pottery and we would like to thank them for their hospitality.

"Trips like this are so important for our young pupils, as it helps them get creative outside the classroom in a relaxed and friendly environment.  This also boosts their confidence in unfamiliar surroundings.

"This year’s Reception class are another fantastic group; a credit to not only themselves but to the school in general.”
