Cymraeg Campus – Cymraeg Campus is a Language Charter that is used to promote the use of the Welsh language throughout the school, across the Curriculum and in all area of school life. In school we have established a ‘Criw Cymraeg’ who are a pupil voice setup to encourage and promote the Welsh language. The members include 2 children from each class.
The Criw Cymraeg meet up every week to discuss how to improve the Welsh in school. One of their duties is to lead the Welsh assembly every week where they give out Welsh certificates to the class who are improving their Welsh. They also help in giving out new Welsh phrases of the week e.g. Beth wnes ti dros y penwythnos? What did you do over the weekend?
The Criw Cymraeg have been very successful in reaching the Bronze Award and are working hard to reach the Silver Award.
They have 10 targets to achieve which are:
- Establish a visual Welsh ethos
- The advantages of learning Welsh
- Using incidental Welsh in the classroom
- Using incidental Welsh outside of the classroom
- Welsh in assemblies
- Using apps and Websites to enhance learning and enjoyment
- Enrichment Welsh activities
- Developing Welsh reading
- Using Welsh across the Curriculum
- A positive attitude toward the Welsh Language
The Welsh language plays an important part in Llanidloes Primary school life. We encourage, inspire and give many opportunities for children to use the Welsh language and understand it’s importance. This ethos will engage pupils to be culturally active throughout their life.
