Year 5 improve communication skills during latest Forest School morning

A Preparatory School year group worked on their communication skills as part of their latest outdoor learning session.

The Year 5 contingent at Rydal Penrhos held their summer term Forest School morning on Thursday, June 28, which is the latest in a series of opportunities afforded to each Prep School pupil in a bid to enhance their development outside of the classroom.

This particular session took on the theme of communication and the group were tasked with devising non-verbal methods of getting their message across to one another, without giving away their position to the “enemy” during one of the activities.

They then had to lay trails along similar lines, before learning how people used to communicate using Morse Code and Semaphore during a time before the digital age the Year 5s are more accustomed to.

The class also got the chance to socialise and play around the Forest School facility as a reward for their outstanding application and effort during the morning.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Forest School scheme is something that is a cornerstone of our success here at Rydal Penrhos, and it was great to see our Year 5 class making the very most out of another opportunity to improve their overall development.

“None of this would be possible without the hard work and continued dedication of our tremendous staff team, who consistently implement fun and interesting schedules to maximise each child’s potential.”
