Early Years children brave the chill for latest Coastal School session

Early Years children at Rydal Penrhos continued their recent work on all things related to the weather during their latest session of an outdoor learning initiative.

The group braved the cold at Colwyn Bay beach for another instalment of their Coastal School session, which saw them take part in a series of different activities to further enhance their development in an environment other than the classroom.

During the session, the group got creative and built their very own sand snowmen, which fitted in well with their weather topic and allowed them to ask questions and learn more about the recent frosty and snowy weather to hit the North Wales area.

Each child was able to use their imaginations using materials from the strand line such as seaweed for the hair and hat and shells for the arms and face.

The sessions have been designed to incorporate topical work from the classroom through various problem-solving methods along the picturesque Colwyn Bay coastline, which will test pupils’ creativity, investigative techniques, numeracy and literacy.

During the event the pupils spent their time creating sand snowmen using things found on the beach, and also took part in a variety of beach related games.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Our Coastal School initiative is something that has been extremely well received by our Early Years children, and I would like to thanks each member of staff for their continued work and commitment to giving each child a solid foundation from which to build a successful education at Rydal Penrhos.”
