Our Welsh Curriculum

WelshWe actively encourage “welshness” within the school in order to stimulate and encourage pupil’s learning and general awareness of the Welsh Language.  Children are spoken to and encouraged to respond in Welsh as often as is possible during the school day.

Welsh is taught as a second language, as part of the National Curriculum.  It is taught in a meaningful way reflecting events and experiences.  We aim to make the learning of Welsh a pleasurable, interesting and lively experience through song, dance, drama, games, stories and legends.

Through stories and legends we aim to develop in the child an awareness of the cultural heritage of Wales.

Teaching staff and pupils are supported by a teacher adviser for Welsh who visits the school regularly during the school year.
