Homework -Eisteddfod 2020

 

There will be various home/school competitions for your children to enter as part of our St. David’s Day celebrations this year. Please could you ensure that all competition entries are brought into school to be judged by Monday 24th February 2020.

 

Children are welcome to enter as many competitions as they wish, and winning entries will be announced during our Eisteddfod celebrations on Friday 28th February (Key Stage 2).

 

The children are able to choose which competition/s to enter. They are welcome to enter all competitions open to them. There will be house points awarded for every competition entry. The winning entries will receive house points, certificates and a special welsh prize.

 

The competitions are as follows:

Whole School Competitions:

 

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 Thursday 21st 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.

The children are also encouraged to wear traditional welsh costume or a full welsh sporting kit such as rugby or football.

 

The following Key Stage 2 additional competitions have been decided upon through pupil voice sessions:

Key Stage 2 Competitions:

The Advantages of Learning Welsh – Children to present the advantages of learning Welsh, using Google slides or Google sites. Please consider the following questions: Why is learning Welsh important? Why is learning Welsh a lifelong skill? What are the benefits of learning Welsh?

If children decide to use the tools available on Hwb it is then their responsibility to download the file and save it into the Eisteddfod entry folder in their pupil folders on Monday 24th February. If any support is needed to do this, please see class teachers. Alternatively, competition entries completed on the computer be burnt onto a disc and handed to class teachers

 

A Welsh Song  - To write and perform a song highlighting the advantages of learning Welsh. The song could include Welsh words and phrases. Auditions will take place at lunchtime on Tuesday 25th February in the Year 6 classroom.

Please ensure that all entries are solely completed by the children themselves. We look forward to seeing the fantastic contributions which will play a vital part in celebrating the heritage and culture of Wales during our Eisteddfod.
