A group of young children at Rydal Penrhos got up close and personal with creatures great and small thanks to a recent trip.
The Early Years group took a trip to Manorafon Farm Park, situated on the North Wales coastline within the parkland of Gwrych Castle, which former pupil Dr Mark Baker is in the process of restoring.
During their visit, the children got to see the vast array of different animals located at the facility, petting animals including lambs, goats and birds under the supervision of staff at the farm.
They also found out more about more exotic farm residents in the form of Turtles and Lamas, and participated in numerous fun-filled activities including making their very own farm food to give to the animals.
This is the latest in a series of trips provided of the Early Years’ staff during the academic year, which have been implemented with a view to giving each child the best learning experiences possible to prepare them for their transition to full-time education at the Prep School.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “These educational visit are vital in the early stages of a child’s development, and our dedicated and passionate staff do a marvellous job of making learning as fun as possible for the group in various different environments.
“We are very fortunate to be situated in a stunning part of the world, and with visits such as these, together with our Coastal School initiative, we strive to ensure we maximise this benefit fully and consistently which aides each child considerably.”
