Rydal Penrhos Pre-School children enjoyed a busy end to the half term.
While most of the Rydal Penrhos community embarked on a half-term of online learning due to Welsh Government restrictions surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, Pre-School children continued to go about their daily business without a care in the world.
Staff at the Prep School did an exceptional job of providing a safe and nurturing environment for Pre-Schoolers and keyworkers’ children, taking every necessary precaution to meet the highest educational and safety standards.
It was a hugely exciting end to the half-term for Pre-School children, with the enthusiastic contingent participating in the Big Welsh Rhyme Time, which involved singing and dancing to famous songs surrounding the proud Welsh language every day throughout the week.
Not only a lot of fun but improving Welsh language communications skills in the process.
Continuing with themed activities, the youngest members of the Rydal Penrhos family got creative with some activities surrounding Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.
Pupils continued to wear their school uniform on-site to keep some semblance of normality, and the Pre-School timetable was relatively unaltered despite a lack of Coastal School and Swimming on the schedule due to the current climate preventing these activities from taking place – at least for now.
Hours of operation were shortened slightly from 8.30am-5.30pm to reduce the risk of any complications, with packed lunches also being brought in by children with catering not permitted.
This took a great deal of planning from the senior leadership at Rydal Penrhos, which has brought the very best out of children and staff alike as they made the best out of a difficult situation.
We are looking forward to welcoming back further members of Rydal Penrhos Prep School following the half-term holiday and everything will be ready for a safe and smooth return.
