St David's Day


It will soon be St David's Day and we're getting ourselves ready for a day filled with Hwyl Gymraeg!


Please help your child to learn this poem to recite with their house on the day.



Dewi the Dragon

Dewi is a dragon
Born and bred in Wales
Weaned on meals of laverbread
And Felifoel’s best ales.

Most of the foreign dragons
Drink petrol as a rule
But Dewi is such a hot shot
He needs no extra fuel.

His mam lives in Cwmfelinfach
Whilst daddy works in Splott
Underneath the swimming pool
To keep the water hot.

Dragons have a scaly coat
They’re not able to perspire
So if they get overheated
They set themselves on fire.

Dewi’s doing well these days
He’s in the public eye
Pictured on our national flag
Our hero’s flying high.

So if you go to Cardiff
And you see the Union Jack
Wave to Dewi, he’s there too
I’m sure that he’ll wave back.

Welcome to Year 1! All the staff in Year 1 are so looking forward to getting to know you. I am sure you are very excited to start another school year and also to find out all about life in Year 1! This leads us into our first context for learning 'family albums' . We will be looking at ourselves, our family and all our fantastic friends.
