Session 3- Spring Term 1
- During the meeting, we decided to hold a competition for the Eisteddfod.
- The children had a choice of two activities for their Eisteddfod entry:
-Activity 1: The Poem of a Love Spoon- council members had to design, name their love spoon and create a poem about what it symbolises.
-Activity 2: The 'Fact Files' - council members had to research a famous local castle and create a 'Fact 'File' based on that castle. Then they designed their own interpretation of the castle.
Session 4- Spring Term 2
- During the meeting, we worked alongside the Criw Cymraeg and designed 'Croeso' posters for the School.
- We were asked by the Criw Cymraeg to help with one of their targets for the School to achieve the Bronze award in the language charter.
- Council members discussed the concept of a poster and designed their own poster that could be displayed around the School.
- First, they completed a draft and edited their work before completing their final version.
- All posters were anonymous and were judged by the Criw Cymraeg- The Criw Cymraeg were very impressed with the entries!
Session 5- Summer Term 1
- Our theme in this meeting was 'Soccer Aid'.
- As a council, we had to present out football skills in the chance of winning a prize to support the charity.
- Following this, we decided to explore famous Welsh footballers both in the past and present, and present our findings to others.
