Early Years department begin community partnership with Residential Home
20th September 2018

Rydal Penrhos’ youngest children have started a community initiative at a nearby Colwyn Bay residential home.

The school’s Early Years department made their first trip to Merton Place on Monday, September 17, which is part of a series of visits they plan to make to the facility over the year to build further links between Rydal Penrhos and the site.

During their visit, the children sang a selection of different nursery rhymes for the residents in attendance, before taking part in a group activity threading little pieces of cereal on to pipe cleaners to make into bird feeders for the garden and patio area at Merton Place.

Early Years’ teacher Nikki Taylor, said: “Children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the visit to Merton Place.

“The residents really enjoyed the nursery rhymes as they are traditional songs that they remembered from their time as children themselves.

“We did Twinkle Twinkle, Baa baa black sheep, Incy Wincy Sider and lots more. The residents were very keen to join in with singing and actions.

“The children really got a lot out of the experience and they are already looking forward to visiting

The department will be visiting Merton Place every third week for the foreseeable future and is the latest in a long line of exciting community initiatives implemented at Rydal Penrhos’ Prep and Senior sites.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, added: “This is yet another outstanding and mutually beneficial initiative from our fantastic Early Years department, who are always striving to improve and give each child under their care the best possible platform from which to build an exceptional education.”
