Wythnos Cymraed / Welsh Week and World Book Day

St David’s Day


We’ve had a very busy first week back from half term and would like to thank you all for the support you’ve given to the many activities that we have run.


St David’s Day was a great success. The children had produced some fabulous paintings and writing for the competitions in our Eisteddfod and the overall results are as follows:


4th Draig (Red Dragon House Team)                           36 points

3rd Cennin (Green Leeks House Team)                       48 points

2nd Castell (Yellow Castles House Team)                    64 points

1st Afon (Blue Rivers House Team)                             76 points


There were points for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Highly Commended entries and it was great to see everyone having a go.

We also ran a special Eisteddfod Mega Quiz. The younger classes had a go together with their teachers. In Year 4 the children had a go in pairs and in Years 5 and 6 the children had a go as individuals. The quiz questions were all about our wonderful country of Wales.

World Book Day


Many children came in dressed as their favourite character from a book and we had a little competition with prizes donated by the PTA. We were mainly looking for children who had helped to create their own costumes or had used their imagination to make a costume from things that they could find from within the house. Many of these children enjoyed telling us about their character and the book that they had read. There were a great many wonderful ideas for costumes and we’re only sorry that we couldn’t recognise them all.



Digital Mascot


The children have been judging the designs for a school digital mascot. Each class has looked at and voted for the design options from all the other classes. The designs from the following children have gone forwards for the selection of one overall winner who’s design will become the school’s digital mascot.

Isla, Marlee, Szymon, Layla and George


We have also now received all the designs for our Criw Cymraeg logo and some of these look fantastic. Well done to everyone who has had a go!

If your design doesn’t get selected this time don’t be disheartened – it might be your turn next time.
