Seren a sbarcs song!

Our Criw Iaith are currently working hard to gather all our evidence for our Bronze award for the Cymraeg Campus.

We will keep you updated with our progress!

Find below a copy of the Sentence patterns we use across the school for Welsh. Each sentence comes with a sound file so you can hear how the sentence is pronounced. 

Diwrnod Shwmae!!


On Friday the 15th of October it is Diwrnod Shwmae (Shwmae day).

This is a national celebration and the aim is simple - to start every conversation with 'Shwmae' (Hi there!)

It will be recognised across wales and is a time to come together to celebrate and promote the Welsh language. We are asking children to come to school in the Welsh colours (red, green, white) or in a Welsh rugby / football top. 

Each class will be taking part in activities throughout the day.


Diolch yn fawr. 

Mrs Powell, Mrs Townley and our new Criw Iaith (Language crew)

This is our school Welsh Prayer.
