Gwyrosydd School Visit

I went back in time to Gwyrosydd School last Friday 22 March - it is where I attended school as an infant and a junior!  

Geraint Williams, Catrin Haines Davies and I spoke to a class of children about Daniel James.  This group are going to be involved in the animation process.  I had prepared some slides giving information on different aspects of Daniel James's life  and we used these to illustrate our talk.  The children were very interested and asked lots of questions.  They are going to be doing some further research on Daniel James before the animation day and will be using the slides and this blog as part of their research activities.

School Workshops

The project team is looking forward to forthcoming workshops at:
 
  •  Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg, Tirdeunaw
  •  Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bryn Tawe
  •   Gwyrosydd Primary School

These will take place in the next two weeks with the children and the project team focusing on the research completed and gathering information together for the animation.  These workshops are an important milestone in the life of the project and a fantastic opportunity for all involved to work together to achieve our goal!

Lesson on Mynyddbach Chapel

Nice article in the Evening Post on Saturday (9th) regarding pupils from Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Tirdeunaw.  They have been finding out about the history of Mynyddbach Chapel and have visited the West Glamorgan Archive Service for information.

Great to see interest in this wonderful Chapel receiving newsprint again!
