Here we will give you a termly update on how we work towards our gwobr arian, our silver target.
This term we will focus on 3 targets;
Targed 4 – Pupils are able to speak Welsh in a range of situations outside the classroom.
Targed 5 – The Criw cymraeg lead the majority of a weekly Welsh assembly.
Targed 7 – The school organise a range of enriched activities to develop pupils’ use and enjoyment of Welsh.
What will we be doing?
This half term we will be holding our school Eisteddfod on March 3rd. Children will participate in a variety of Welsh activities, singing including the national anthem and competitions. The work will be displayed in the hall for parents to see and via our online platforms.
We have started to plan and reintroduce ‘Teulu Tuesdays’. We will invite parents into school to work with the children on Welsh themed and vocabulary activities beginning with the younger learners.
During the term we will hold two cymraeg gwasanaeths which will discuss the importance of speaking Welsh and St Davids Day including stories and tales of Wales.
We will be introducing Gemau Buarth at dinner times. Children from the Criw will go out with Younger Learners to play Welsh games every Wednesday and Thursday.
Finally we will be taking all of our older learners on a variety of residentials which will allow them to use their Welsh language outside of the classroom and immerse themselves around it. Year 3 and 4 will be heading to Pentrellyncymer and Year 5 and 6 will have the opportunity to visit Caerdydd and Nant BH.
Can’t wait to share our progress 🙂
