Year 4 celebrate Shakespeare Week at Forest School morning

A group of Preparatory School pupils got creative as part of an ongoing learning initiative at one of Rydal Penrhos’ most prominent features.

The Year 4 class took part in a special Forest School morning on Tuesday, March 13, where they took part in a series of activities in an outdoor environment designed to improve teamwork and enhance learning outside of the classroom.

Under the expert guidance of teachers Jude Pyves and Catherine Culver, the pupils split up into groups and took on the challenge of creating their very own woodland fairy houses using materials found around the Forest School.

This was in conjunction with Shakespeare Week and the upcoming Year 4 play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is taking place next week.

Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Forest School mornings are always something each pupil here at Rydal Penrhos looks forward to enormously, as it gives them a chance to pick up new skills they do not learn in the classroom.

“It also aids with their communication and teamwork by working together to achieve their overall objectives, and our staff do a fantastic job of creating a fun and safe environment for our children to thrive in what is a stunning feature at our Prep School.”
