Year 3 and 4 learn beyond the classroom on Preston Montford Field Studies Centre residential

A pair of Preparatory School year groups had the opportunity to expand their learning on a residential trip.

The Year 3 and 4 classes at Rydal Penrhos visited Preston Montford, a field studies centre situated in the North West of England, on Tuesday May 23 and Wednesday 24.

During the excursion there was plenty for the eager learners’ to apply themselves to, including nature walks, in addition to exploring the vast countryside in a series of fun-filled and testing activities.

There was also a special exploring competition with the winning team of Zack Coverley, Will Hibbert and Adam Williams receiving a tasty bar of chocolate for their efforts.

The group also got to fish for all creatures great and small in a special river activity, where they were tasked with identifying different species and recording their findings for documentation purposes.

Their creative nous was also put to the test in an outdoor environment thanks to a special designing task using nothing but twigs and plants found in their surroundings.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “These trips are a great way to learn in a different environment while having fun with your classmates in the process.

“They were challenged in a variety of ways throughout their trip which is always something we actively encourage here at Rydal Penrhos, whether it be in the classroom, on the stage or on educational trips such as this.

“It is the best way to enhance a child’s academic learning and it also enables them to improve their adaptability to different situations or tests they may be faced with in the future.”
