Rydal Penrhos: Y9 gear up for Quad model project
July 6, 2020

A year group at Rydal Penrhos made preparations ahead of a special project this week.

The Year 9 contingent spent part of their first day back on-site at Rydal Penrhos following the coronavirus lockdown putting a plan in place regarding a task given to them by Dr Luke Adamson, who teaches Mathematics at the school.

The project, which has been implemented with a view to improving knowledge of dimensions and also inspiring creativity, centres on the school’s Memorial Quad, which the Year 9 will be making a scale model of in the coming days.

In the lead-up to the constriction element of the task, each pupil involved spent considerable time around the Quad, measuring the area for the specifications needed in a socially distanced manner.

These measurements will now be condensed in order to come up with the right size to make a scale model.

Sally-Ann Harding, senior school head of Rydal Penrhos, said: “This is just one of many exciting projects that our pupils are participating in during their return to school, and they have thrown themselves into each task with their customary grit and enthusiasm.

“Our staff team have done an incredible job of not only making things as safe as possible in the current climate but also easing their transition back into school with thought-provoking activities that have a significantly positive impact on their learning.”

Rydal Penrhos is now able to offer socially distanced tours to prospective pupils and their families. For more information email admissions@rydalpenrhos.com or book online at https://rydal.wpengine.com/open-days-visits.
