Welsh Phrase of the Fortnight
Every fortnight we have a Welsh Phrase to learn and respond to confidently. Criw Cymraeg are here to give you a few tips on asking and responding correctly. Da iawn Criw Cymraeg!
The ‘Cymraeg Campus’ Language Charter is a framework which will help us to promote and increase the use of Welsh across the whole school. It will provide a strong, Welsh ethos and all members of the school are encouraged to take full ownership of it. We at Willowbrook are aiming to achieve the Bronze award from the Language Charter and must achieve ten of the following targets:
1. Establishing a visual Welsh ethos.
2. The advantages of learning Welsh.
3. The use of incidental Welsh in the classroom.
4. The use of incidental Welsh outside of the classroom.
5. Welsh in assemblies.
6. Apps and websites to enhance learning and enjoyment.
7. Enrichment activities.
8. Developing reading.
9. Welsh across the curriculum.
10. A positive attitude.
Llongyfarchiadau, Congratulations Willowbrook!
We have achieved all ten targets of Cymraeg Campus and have officially been awarded the Bronze Award. A big thank you to all members of staff, parents and governors who participated and supported the school in achieving the award. The biggest thank you must of course be to the children of Willowbrook. You have shown your passion, dedication and enthusiasm to Welsh. Diolch yn fawr!
As part of achieving the award, two representatives of Criw Cymraeg were invited to the Cymraeg Campus Awards Ceremony. Both girls have created a video to show how we celebrated.
