Y2 explore landscape at picturesque Bryn Euryn
October 25, 2019

A Preparatory School year group took a trip to one of the most picturesque sites anywhere in the region to boost their learning.

The Year 2 contingent at Rydal Penrhos paid a visit to Bryn Euryn nature reserve prior to the half-term break, which overlooks the coastal town of Rhos on Sea and is situated just a short distance away from the school campus.

It proved to be another very worthwhile experience for the group, who walked across the stunning landscape and found out more about the animals and plantation living and growing within the area.

They motivated each other tremendously well throughout the visit, reaching the summit to witness some spectacular views.

Bryn Euryn is a rich mixture of grassland and woodland, part of it being a Site of Special Scientific interest.

It also has great historical interest with Llys Euryn – a house dating from the 15th century – and a hilltop fort from the sixth century.

The area is well served by a network of paths, including the Summit Trail, which links Llys Euryn and the fort at the summit.

Prep School Head Lucy Davies, said: “We are extremely fortunate to live in a truly stunning part of the country here on the North Wales coast, and this is something we aim to utilise constantly here at Rydal Penrhos to boost each child’s initial and ongoing development.

“The Year 2 group were fascinated throughout their trip to Bryn Euryn and will take what they discovered into the classroom following the half-term break.”
