Year 1 pupils at Rydal Penrhos put together some special portraits in recognition of Mother’s Day this weekend.
One thing all Prep pupils at Rydal Penrhos love is their weekly Art lessons. Led by teacher Suzy Morris, aspiring artists get the chance to explore various topics that continue to inspire our eager learners and build key skills – many of which transition into other subjects.
Art enables our pupils to develop intrinsic human qualities such as creativity, expression, identity, culture and imagination as well as helping to preserve our cultural heritage.
It gives young children an opportunity to progress their own languages which help shape their individual, community and global identity. It also has a hugely beneficial impact on areas such as confidence, self-esteem, personal, social, emotional development and behavioural health.
Not only this, but Mrs Morris also incorporates the creative with the theory from a very early age, giving Rydal Penrhos pupils a broader understanding of Art and some of the world’s greatest-ever creators.
Year 1 pupils have been taking part in a special project to mark a special occasion this weekend. Each pupil got creative and drew their very own “my mummy” portraits in recognition of Mother’s Day, which is on Sunday 27 March.
Here is a gallery of what Year 1 produced to mark the occasion and everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to wish all our fantastic parents a wonderful day. You all deserve it!
