Cymraeg Campus

Beth ydi hwn? / What is this?

The Welsh Government aims to have a million Welsh speakers by 2050. This is a long-term aim, and the education system has a key role to play in achieving it. In order to achieve the aim, changes will be needed to the curriculum to ensure that all learners in Wales are able to develop their Welsh language skills for social and work use in the future.

One of the key aims within the 2050 Welsh strategy is to embed positive language use practices supported by formal and informal opportunities to use Welsh socially. 

Where are we up to? 

We have already been successful in achieving our 'Silver Award'. We all worked really hard and feel very proud of our achievements with developing our school's use of the Welsh language. Now, we are working towards the Gold Award.

Our Contributions to Cymraeg Campus Gwobr Aur

We will update our page regularly with our achievements and projects.

Friday Assemblies / Gwasanaeth Dydd Gwener

Every Friday we have taken on the role of leading whole-school assemblies. In our assembly we introduce the new 'Ymadrodd yr Wythnos' and also announce the Tocyn Iaith Winners. Each class loves the competition of using their Welsh language to earn tocynau! We also choose a Siaradwr yr Wythnos to present a certificate to each Friday.

Ymadrodd yr Wythnos / Phrase of the Week

Siaradwr yr Wythnos / Speaker of the Week

Caffi Cymraeg

We came up with the idea of 'Caffi Cymraeg' as a business to help our school make some money. Before the summer holidays we held Caffi Cefn every week on a Thursday, and we made an incredible £190!

We keep track of our profit and out-goings and carefully add up the takings. This term, we have been able to buy brand new welsh books with our profit to add to our class libraries! Anhygoel! laugh

Ga i _______ os gwelwch yn dda? / Can I have _______ please?

Eisteddfod yr Urdd

We always take part in the Eisteddfod, and it was brilliant to see so many taking part in the recitation and dance competitions. We also took part in the group art competition and The Innovators made junk dragons! 

Da iawn pawb! / Well done everyone!

Caban Cymraeg / Welsh Cabin

We decided that it would be great if Criw had a space that they could use to encourage other pupils to take part in Welsh games and to use their Welsh langauge outside of the classroom. So, we ordered a sign and chalk board to turn our playground shelter into a Caban Cymraeg! We write welsh questions and phrases for everyone to practice, and have a basket of Welsh activities to take outside at playtimes.

Mae pawb yn mwynhau gemau buarth / Everyone is enjoying Welsh Games. 

What are we working on?

Darllen Cymraeg

During a meeting with Mrs Pitt-Lacey, we discussed ways of developing welsh reading in school. We suggested that Junior pupils could lead group reading sessions with the Infants each week! It is fun to share the new books that we have bought, and help the infants with their reading and welsh language patterns. We take part in our Reading Buddies initiative twice a week, and we can use any book we like. Some even have Makaton signs in them so we can practice this as well!

Rydy ni'n hoffi darllen efo chi! / We like reading with you!
