Welsh - Eisteddfod Competitions

Children are asked to enter as many competitions as they would like, but ALL children must enter at least 1 competition category.

 

Welsh Learner of the Year-

The children are encouraged to use what they have been learning in school to showcase their knowledge and understanding of the Welsh language. They may choose to write some phrases or sentences, a letter, conversation or celebrity profile in Welsh. The children must also write a paragraph in English explaining why they think they should be ‘Welsh Learner of the Year’. There is a very useful online dictionary on the website bbclearnwelsh which will be helpful when the children are writing in Welsh.

 

3D Modelling Competition –

Children are encouraged to make a 3D model of something which represents Wales for them. Children may use whichever means of media they wish and the topic is broad to encourage creativity.

Cookery Competition - Children are encouraged to cook something which is a traditional Welsh recipe or depicts Wales to them.

 

Young Performer Competition-

As part of our Eisteddfod this year we are also encouraging the children to showcase their talents. Auditions will take place in class on Tuesday 27th February. Two children will then be chosen to represent their class during our Eisteddfod celebration. The children may like to prepare a song or dance, recite a poem or play a musical instrument.

 

Motivational Speech for Welsh Rugby Team

Children are asked to write or record a motivational speech for our Welsh rugby team using persuasive langauge. They may wish to write their speech, or use an IT programme of their choice – this may be Movie Maker or iMovie.

 

Wonderful Wales Photography Competition-

Children will be asked to take a photograph of something which depicts Wales for them. Children are encouraged to think creatively and justify why the photograph symbolises Wales for them. The photograph may be of a place in Wales which is special to them or a photograph of a Welsh symbol.

Our educational visit to Cosmeston Lakes Country Park

Year 4 are currently taking part in a very exciting project called the Tidy! project. We have been extremely lucky to work with some very talented poets, artists and composers in school as part of this project. So far, we have composed our very own poem and are in the middle of creating artwork to represent the environmental issues that run throughout our poem.

Multi Sports Tournament

Burps, Bottoms and Bile

 

We were very lucky to have three students from Cardiff University come in to school to carry out a number of different workshops with us, all about our new context called Burps, Bottoms and Bile! Chloe, Holly and Rachael carried out activities telling us all the gory details of what happens in our digestive systems; showing us the germs that are on our hands and fun facts about our bones and how important these are to us! We had a fantastic afternoon and learnt heaps of new facts about our bodies.
