We are the Criw Cymraeg of Drury Primary School. We have two members from each class from Year 3 to Year 6 in our crew. Each of us was voted by our class to be members of the Criw Cymraeg.
You will be able to spot us around the school as each member wears a ddraig coch badge.
Mrs Roscoe is also a member of the Criw Cymraeg 🏴.
We have a responsibility to help improve Welsh in Drury. We encourage both children and staff to use Welsh as often as possible, both in and out of class.
We never stop thinking of ways to improve our Welsh in school.
We host a weekly Welsh assembly in which we sing, present and question the rest of
the school in Welsh. (Mrs Roscoe currently has a waiting list, as Welsh presentations are proving very popular!)
We introduce new vocabulary and phrases to each year group to take and use back in class.
We celebrate our heritage and culture as well as promoting contemporary Wales.
She is strong, fiery and quite dramatic… but do you know where she comes from? When was she born and how did a sung letter 'Glan Rhondda' (On the banks of the Rhondda) to a brother far away, grow up to become the anthem we know and love today?
Who was the first person to sing 'Glan Rhondda' in public? Who changed 'Glan Rhondda' to Hen 'Wlad fy Nhadau' — Land of my Fathers? When was it chosen as a national anthem for Wales? Who became a record maker with it?
When was it first used at a sporting event and what effect did it have? Discover this and more on a journey with An-Them.
You will also be able to learn the words and the sentiment behind them, so we can all sing confidently, with passion, together…
