Eisteddfod

On Friday we held our fantastic Eisteddfod, the culmination of weeks of competitions in music, art, handwriting, home school tasks, dancing, singing, recitation and poetry. All of the children competed excellently in all aspects of the Eisteddod from the brave Nursery singing solos in front of the whole school to the Year 6 pupils choreographing their own country and disco dances.
When all the scores were totalled (and double checked) the winner of the Eisteddfod for 2019 was.....

RHONDDA


Part of the competition is the ‘Chairing of the bard’ which this year was creating a new Welsh language school prayer. The ‘Bard’ takes pride of place on our Eisteddfod throne and is presented with their cape and crown.




On Tuesday families are welcome to come to school between 9:00 and 10:30 to see some of the winners of the competitions perform again.

Music competitions

Pictured below are some of our incredibly talented musicians who have taken part in Eisteddfod competitions this week. It was fantastic to see how many children have taken up playing an instrument and how their hard work, practice and dedication are paying off.
We had superb performances from Year 2 to Year 6, with winners in beginner, intermediate and advanced competitions in guitar, strings (cello, double bass and violin), brass (trumpet and trombone), piano and recorder.
Well done to all the children involved.
If you would like to hear / see some of the winning performances then please come along to our Eisteddfod Coffee morning after the half-term break.
