Welsh

 

Every morning the children of Nursery start the day with saying 'Bore da' to their friends and the staff and giving them a big smile and wave. 

The children answer the register to Mrs O'Brien saying 'Uma' and choosing if they have 'Cino' or 'Brechdanau' for lunch. 

It doesn't stop there!!

The children are then quizzed about the weather and they can even answer in Welsh!

They really are amazing!

Each day two Helpwr Heddiwr are chosen to listen out for any welsh spoken by others and to assist the teachers with lots of busy tasks.

 

During their time in Nursery the children will :

Listen to Welsh stories

Count to 10 in Welsh

Recognise and name the colours in Welsh

Talk about their feelings in Welsh
