In the last few decades, Wales has reclaimed its native tongue and at Moreton First, there is a thriving Welsh Club, and for good reason!
Several children have joined the school with a strong command of the language. It plays an important part in their cultural identity and being so close to the Welsh border, it is a great time to start learning the language.
Alice, in Year 5 and a member of the Welsh Club, commented: “I live in Wales so when I speak Welsh I don’t feel different, I feel part of the community.” Kate, also Year 5 and a member of the club, commented: “We learn lots about Wales and have many opportunities to speak in Welsh.”
Head of Moreton First, Catherine Ford, commented: "Welsh Club has been a very popular addition to the timetable. We have even incorporated some Welsh songs in to our Christmas productions this year. Soon we will be wishing everyone,
Nadolig llawen a blwyddyn newydd dda!”
