Pre-School discover Space during exciting topic
January 24, 2022

Pre-School children at Rydal Penrhos have been discovering Space as part of an exciting project under the guidance of staff.

Pre-School children at Rydal Penrhos have been extremely busy since their return from the festive break, delving deeper into Space for a special topic that featured a wealth of exciting practical and thought-provoking activities.

As part of their ongoing work throughout the term, Pre-School children grew cress to develop more understanding about sunlight and how it helps things grow and explored walking on the moon, creating an American flag like the one placed on the moon’s surface by Neil Armstrong.

There was plenty of excitement in the air during their singing and dancing to Space-themed songs, with children also getting the opportunity to become astronauts as part of their role-play sessions.

Under the guidance of staff, Pre-Schoolers also made their very own rocket ships outside using wooden blocks at Rydal Penrhos’ specialist Forest School site, something that enhanced their creativity and progressed practical skills significantly for good measure.

Ms Spencer, said: “The children are enjoying learning about this term’s topic and the discussions have been fantastic.

“The children have a weekly activity that is uploaded onto Evidence Me which they bring into Pre-School at the beginning of the week to show their friends and teachers. Their work then gets displayed on the Homework table for everyone to see.

“It’s lovely to see how excited the children are when they bring in their creations. It’s nice because parents can upload pictures of their children doing the activity for their teachers to see.”

Here is a small sample of what Pre-School children got up to. Well done to all and thanks to our outstanding staff for continuing to inspire the youngest members of the Rydal Penrhos community.
