Our after school Welsh club is a real hit. Lead by our Cymraeg Cwl pupils, each week is planned for and caters for a variety of different Welsh language patterns and activities. This week pupils decorated cakes in the colours of the Welsh flag, ensuring they ask for the ingredients in Welsh. Da iawn, dal ati.
Year 5 struck back up their links with Richmond Park Primary School in Carmarthen today and Skyped them for their Welsh Drilling session after lunch. Three of the pupils asked and answered questions in Welsh to help their develop language patterns. Three different pupils will be picked each Tuesday to talk to the other Year 5 class until the end of the Year. Da iawn pawb.
We used Plickers during our Welsh drilling session in Year 5 today. Children were given multiple choice questions in welsh and had to answer them using their Plickers cards. This gives pupils confidence as no other child can see their answers as everyone has a unique Plicker shape! Joio iawn!🏴
Today Year 6 created their chatter boxes for our Welsh drilling sessions. Throughout the term pupils will learn to talk about themselves in Welsh, likes and dislikes, ensuring that they extend their sentences. Continue reading
This afternoon the whole school was presented with our Bronze siarter iaith for achievements in the Welsh language. The children and staff are extremely proud of all we have achieved during our journey to receiving the award.

Year 1 and Year 5 had a great time this week when they paired up to read and enjoy some Welsh books together. Da iawn!
Year 4 were visited today by PC Parry to learn about staying safe. They discussed what the terms friend and foe meant, situations where they may be safe or unsafe, and how to make decisions about strangers. The phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” was reinforced when thinking about what people are like when we first meet them. The class fully engaged with the session and shared some excellent ideas. (They even got to teach PC Parry a bit of Welsh, too!)

30 businesses across three Welsh towns – Pwllheli, Swansea and Cowbridge – have placed a sticker featuring the Siarter Iaith mascots, Seren a Sbarc, in their windows. From Monday 30th April until Monday 7th May, we are asking primary school children and their families to seek out these stickers, take a photograph of one or more and share, along with the #SiarterIaith hashtag and their details, via the Cymraeg Facebook and Instragram pages, on Twitter @Cymraeg, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, along with their details and where the stickers were found.
Each entry will go into a final draw where a name will be selected at random. The winner wins their choice of family break kindly provided by Yr Urdd – two nights away at Glan-llyn outdoor activity centre in Bala or Llangrannog activity centre. One child from each town will also receive a runner up prize.
