S3 Increase progress of Welsh across the school - Estyn Recommendation - 

We have all worked our socks off this year, spreading the love for the language of Welsh through lots of big events and through our regular daily activities. Dydd Miwsig Cymru and our Eisteddfod are events that the whole school enjoyed.

Our teachers have made our slot drillio's much more fun with new games and activities.

Our assemblies happen every week and more people are speaking the language so that they can get a lovely prize.


T2 Improve opportunities for authentic Welsh oracy and writing across the school  - Estyn Rec 2

We have tried hard to use Welsh across the school through playground games and Siop Ceirios. We were really looking forward to Cinio Cymraeg but Lockdown stopped us doing it. We will have to try it again when we are back in school.

Mrs Marchant says that we need to do more writing in Welsh.

We held our own Eisteddfod and everyone had a Welshcake.

Who had the heaviest leek?

Diolch yn fawr to everyone who came and bought books and food at our fair.
