Preparatory School pupils have been lending their support to a global reading initiative.
As part of Rydal Penrhos’ celebration of World Book Day on Thursday, March 1, older members of the school community took time out of their normal lessons to read some of their most treasured books to young year groups in a series of special sessions.
Year 5 kicked-off the festivities by sharing some of their favourite stories with Year 1, while Year 3 also made a significant contribution to the initiative by reading to the Early Years group.
This theme continued throughout the day, with Year 4 told their respective tales to the Reception class at Rydal Penrhos, and the event concluded with Year 6 reading their chosen stories to the very eager Year 2.
Deputy Head Alison Hind, said: “This was a fantastic way for our pupils to share some of the stories that have captured their imagination during their childhood so far, and it is sure to inspire the young children we have under our care to start reading even more than they do currently.
“World Book Day is an extremely significant event and our staff are always coming up with great ways to encourage reading which has been proven to improve creativity and other essential areas of learning.
“Leading is one of the key tenets we promote to each pupil here at the Prep School, and the older year groups take a great deal of pride in being role models and thrive with the extra responsibility.”
