Year 7 went on a visit to the ‘Story of Cardiff Museum’, where they got to learn about the history of Cardiff and the people living there. Sam Owen of 7ANB said, “I liked the interactive games; I also liked the Smelly Cardiff section – as I learnt what Cardiff Bay used to smell like” The boys were very well behaved and it was a pleasure to take them to Cardiff.
Many boys took pride in singing Welsh songs in their lessons and enjoyed learning new facts about Wales. Many worked really hard to get their ‘Cerdyn Clod’ (praise cards) signed in lessons and during lunchtime. The students also wore ‘Red for Wales’ and raised a fantastic £130 for the British Heart Foundation.
The Welsh room was a hive of activity as the boys queued up to taste some traditional Welsh food. The cawl was a hit, however Laver bread wasn’t as popular!! I’m sure cockle sales will go through the roof as it was a very popular new taste.
We all look forward to an exciting Eisteddfod in July.
