This year's Eisteddfod will be the first we have been able to share in school for 3 years. We are all very excited!
We won't be gathering together in our halls but we will be sharing our work on the website and using Teams Meetings.
Please dress up in Welsh costume or national team sports kit if you would like to. We will be sending some photos to The Echo for their St David's Day special edition.
Children will be preparing all sorts of work in class for the Eisteddfod and there are competitions to be done at home for each age group. Please click on your child's year group link to find out what they will be doing in class and details of the homework activities. There is no baking competition due to Covid restrictions.
The main homework competition is:
THE BIG SCHOOL POSTER COMPETITION
At Lansdowne, we are working towards an award for our Welsh Learning. One of the things we need to do is to create a welcoming display in the entrance of each building. There will be two competitions, one for the 3-7s and one for the 7-11s. The Year 2 and Year 3 children will be entered into the competition for their class building.
The task is to create a poster that celebrates both Welsh language and Welsh culture. Posters will be enlarged to make a wall display.
Your child’s poster should include the words Cymraeg (Welsh) and Croeso (Welcome).
The poster should also show things that display what it is like to live in Wales. This could be:
famous landmarks such as modern buildings, castles, beaches or mountains
symbols like the dragon and daffodil or leek
your own brilliant ideas
Some elements of 3D may be included.
Finished posters should have your child's name and class on the back and should be handed to Miss Fry. The final day for entry is 1st March 2022.
Here are some activities and websites that will help with your Welsh learning.
If you find a good website, please email me. Also, you can email me if there is something you would like to see on these pages.
There are a range of language patterns that we learn across the school. This PDF shows which patterns are most likely to be covered in each year. The patterns are in English and Welsh.
