Y2 boost material topic at the beach and Forest School
April 30, 2020

A Pre-Prep year group at Rydal Penrhos made the most out of their outdoor learning sessions prior to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Pre-School’s Year 2 contingent took full advantage of Rydal Penrhos’ stunning location on the North Wales coast to find out more about various materials under the guidance of programme leader Jude Pyves and other hard-working staff.

Throughout the second period of spring half term, each pupil worked both individually and as a team during Forest School sessions on special tasks relating to the classic fairy tale The Three Little Pigs.

This involved using woodland materials to design and construct their very own houses to protect themselves from the ‘Big Bad Wolf’!

The group also made the short journey down to Colwyn Bay beach for a similar activity using the various tools provided by staff and materials along the picturesque shoreline.

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

It focuses on providing a safe experience where children and young people are encouraged to explore, discover, take suitable risks and learn in a secure area of woodland.

Coastal School is another successful initiative implemented by Rydal Penrhos teaching staff, which incorporates topical work from the classroom through various problem-solving methods.
