"I was fortunate to be one of twenty pupils taking part in filming 'Gwylltio' this week. Gwylltio is a Nature programme, focusing this week on wildlife in Aberystwyth, with my group focusing on insects. I had a lot of fun, especially when looking under tree trunks for creepy crawlies!
Thank you to the Gwylltio crew - Rhys, Osian, Mererid, Gareth, Yvonne, Cath and Nia for the fun and interesting sessions."

THE 'TOILET TACKLING COMMITTEE' ARE OFF TO A GOOD START!

Within two months of establishing the Toilet Tackling Committee, the work to improve the school's toilets has begun!

"All nine of us who are on the Committee went around all of the school's toilets to see what condition they are in and which ones needed attention first." - Rhodri, Committee Chairman.

And fair play to the boys (yes, note they are all boys!) they decided that the girls' toilets near Year 3 were the priority for improvement.

Pictured is the Committee with the builders who have been working hard installing new toilets over the half term holidays.

 

COMUS LEARNING AND ENJOYING WITH THE RECEPTION CHILDREN

 

At the moment our European Comenius project’s mascot, Comus, is spending time with us here at Ysgol Gymraeg. Before this, Comus has been living with our friends in our partner schools in Turkey, Denmark, Finland and Ysgol Llwyn yr Eos, and he will proceed with his journey when he travels to Italy with school staff members in November. This week, Comus has been very busy in the company of the Reception children – learning to paint, write, sing, count, build, and even eating lunch! He also went on a lovely walk along Plascrug Avenue. Comus will definitely have some interesting stories to tell his new friends in Italy about his time at Ysgol Gymraeg.
