Welsh at Ewloe Green is taught as a second language. Part of the philosophy of teaching Welsh involves learning Welsh in an incidental manner, i.e. greeting children in Welsh, children may ask for things in Welsh. Most of the work entailed in the learning of Welsh is oral in nature although it does involve the need for some written work. The school is very keen to promote its Welsh ethos and competing in Local, County and National Urdd Eisteddfod have become an important part of the school year.
As a school in Wales we encourage our pupils to use the Welsh language as often as possible and to keep developing their skills. If you would like to help and encourage them as they learn (and perhaps learn with them) there are a number of ways you can get help to do this.

Rydym yn dysgu Cymraeg fel ail iaith yn Ysgol Ewloe Green. Mae’r rhan fwyaf o’r gwaith yn waith llafar efo ychydig o waith darllen a gwaith ysgrifenedig. Mae’r ysgol yn frwdfrydig i hybu’r ethos Gymreig a mae cyfleoedd i’r plant gystadlu mewn Eisteddfodau ysgol a lleol.
Fel ysgol rydym yn annog ein plant i ddefnyddio’r Gymraeg mor aml a phosib. Os hoffech chi helpu’ch plentyn i ddysgu cymraeg (ac o bosib, dysgu gyda nhw), ewch at y safleoedd gwe canlynol am fwy o wybodaeth.
