Pre-Prep highlight Tree Dressing Day at Forest School
December 21, 2020

Year 1 and 2 pupils at Rydal Penrhos celebrate Tree Dressing Day.

Rydal Penrhos Pre-Prep School pupils used their latest Forest School session to highlight an important awareness campaign.

Year 1 and 2 groups celebrated Tree Dressing Day, which takes place during the first weekend in December around the world to remember the importance of trees in the environment.

The occasion was initiated by Common Ground in 1990 and is a chance for the whole community to gather and celebrate the leafy friends we all have in common.

During the Forest School session, pupils decorated the trees using ribbons and wool and made garlands using natural materials of twigs and leaves under the supervision of dedicated teaching staff.

Each pupil worked both individually and within groups on their respective designs, which brought some colourful results to further brighten up the fantastic Coed y Plant facility.

Rydal Penrhos Forest School makes use of our unique woodland setting to promote an innovative approach to outdoor learning.

It was implemented with a view to encourage and inspire children across all year groups through positive outdoor experiences, which have continued thanks to the sterling work of staff at the Prep School during the current concerns surrounding COVID-19.

Forest School sessions start at Pre-School and focus 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.


Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer private tours to prospective pupils and their families.
