Preparatory School pupils got up close and personal with creatures great and small on a recent visit.
Rydal Penrhos’ reception class visited Pili Palas Nature World on Friday, March 31, which is situated on the Isle of Anglesey.
During their trip the group got to learn more about the wide range of wildlife situated at the site, while also getting the chance to learn more about the life cycle of a butterfly with a special talk.
In addition the pupils also got the chance to hold a number of creatures including cockroaches, giant millipedes and farmyard animals, before enjoy some activity in the outdoor play area.
The highlight for most of the pupils however was seeing the multi-coloured chameleon that is one of the star attractions at Pili Palas.
Reception teacher Louise Devillefort, said: “All of the class had a great time and also learned a great deal about the different species they have at Pili Palas.
“Trips like this are key in a child’s learning as it gives them a hands-on look, rather than just seeing videos and textbooks, so it was a very worthwhile trip and one that continues to be very popular.
“We are already looking forward to coming back next year.”
