Nearly all of our pupils are from English speaking homes. Welsh is a second language to our pupils. The younger children concentrate on oral work, songs and rhymes. The older children progress to speaking, reading and writing in Welsh. Mrs Cheryl Andrew, our peripatetic teacher visits school on alternate Friday mornings. She helps to plan the Welsh curriculum, supports the teachers and provides Welsh lessons.
The ‘Y Cwricwlwm Cymreig’ is also a statutory part of the child’s learning, which incorporates learning about Wales and the Welsh culture through the medium of English in all other curriculum areas.
Our pupils are invited to become members of Urdd Gobaith Cymru and participate in the cultural and sporting activities involved. The children compete in the Urdd Eisteddfod and have been very successful over the years.
We believe that the children of Ysgol Meifod go to their High School with an excellent knowledge of the language and an appreciation of our Welsh culture and heritage.
