A group of Preparatory School pupils travelled 2,000 years’ back in time on a recent trip.

The Year 2 class at Rydal Penrhos voyaged to the Groundworks Wrexham on Tuesday, September 20, where they took part in a special Celtic workshop.

During the day they reverted back to their Celtic selves by wearing woollen tunics, having lime washed spiked hair and adorning their faces with woad, which was custom before a battle.
Among the activities the pupils took part in were spear throwing, in addition to learning how to weave wool on a loom and make clay thumb-pots.

 

This is the latest in a series of trips planned throughout the prep school during the term, which will see them take in places from Manchester City Football Academy to the Welsh Mountain Zoo.

Prep School head Roger McDuff, said:

“The Celtic workshop is something we have been involved in for some years now, and once again it was a hugely fun and informative day for our pupils.
“Learning outside the classroom is something we actively encourage here at Rydal Penrhos, and trips such as these give our pupils a chance to experience first-hand a new and interesting way of gathering new information about a specific subject or period of time.”
