Pre-School children at Rydal Penrhos have been learning about the people that help us during their day-to-day lives, participating in roleplay to aid their development.
Rydal Penrhos Pre-School is the perfect place for children to begin their journey through education. Our exceptional staff led by department manager Letitia Spencer provide a safe, stimulating environment that allows each child to flourish, develop at their own pace, build friendships and become inspired through a diverse programme of activities and early learning methods under expert supervision.
In addition to building solid foundations in literacy and numeracy, Pre-School children also participate in practical-based activities collectively designed to foster self-esteem, a positive attitude as well as expressive and observational skills. These transpire both on-site and outdoors thanks to Rydal Penrhos’ stunning location on the North Wales coast.
It’s been an incredibly busy start to the second half of the Lent Term within the department, with children building core skills and expanding their horizons with plenty of encouragement and support along the way.
One of the more thought-provoking tasks the group have taken part in lately is centred on ‘people who help us’. Of course, being so young, the list is long, so it was nice for the children to acknowledge the assistance they receive across their day-to-day lives.
This exciting topic culminated in a roleplay session where children were tasked with acting out their own scenes and playing characters relating to the subject. These included prominent figures such as Doctors, Nurses, Firefighters and Policemen.
There was even time for the children to use wooden blocks and make their very own model fire trucks and ambulances to further enhance the overall experience of the roleplay activity.
Another job well done by our young Pre-Schoolers, who have come on a significant amount since the start of the academic year!
