Parents learning Welsh - Session 2

Parents who are learning Welsh were invited to school again in January. During this week’s session we learned how to discuss the weather and count in Welsh, recognising numbers up to 10. Every parent had an opportunity to work in the ‘milk shop’, learning new sentences and questions. We would like to thank the parents for joining and look forward to next month’s session.

Celebrating local success

Friday night, 14th of July, 2017, there was a special night to congratulate Mared Llywelyn Williams, former pupil of Ysgol Morfa on her success in the National Urdd Eisteddfod at Pen-Y-Bont ar Ogwr. She received a medal for writing a ‘drama’. Nia W Williams the head teacher was asked to talk about Mared and her time at ysgol Morfa. Also, year 2 and 3 children sang old traditional songs on the night. Mared visited the school the following Monday to talk about her time at Ysgol Morfa, her feelings about winning the medal at the Eisteddfod and to talk to the children about the library’s summer challenge as she is working in the library.
