Year 6 take part in festive-themed Forest School session

A Preparatory School year group got into the Christmas spirit during the latest stage of their outdoor learning provision.

The Year 6 pupils at Rydal Penrhos took part in their latest Forest School session recently, which was organised by programme leader Jude Pyves and other staff members.

The session centred on improving communication and negotiation, with the group working in teams during a series of festive-themed tasks

This involved working as a unit to build their very own forest stars to leave for the elves.

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

The 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.

Rydal Penrhos Forest School focuses on providing a safe, outdoor learning experience where children and young people are encouraged to explore, discover, take suitable risks and learn in a secure area of woodland.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Forest School sessions are always a source of great excitement for our pupils, which is down to the exciting activities put together by the amazing Mrs Pyves and other very passionate and dedicated staff we are fortunate to have here at Rydal Penrhos.

“This session was no exception and well done to each Year 6 pupil for their commitment to get the very most out of their latest experience at Coed y Plant.”
