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 🙂
