If you’re using St David’s Day and the Eisteddfod as a way to engage your students with the myths and legends of Wales, then our newest workshop is a perfect accompaniment to your classroom teaching.
Porthcawl is rich in stories of pirates and shipwrecks, smugglers and looters, and there’s no better place for children to learn about these than outside, overlooking the very places they hear about and learning about the countryside at the same time.
Designed with the new Curriculum for Wales in mind, our stories and activities feed in to the 4 Purposes of Learning, particularly in creating ethical, informed citizens who are knowledgeable about their culture and community, now and in the past.
Our workshops will keep kids active – whether they’re walking through the woods or across the beach to collect items for their crafty creations; alongside the physical activity the creative elements engage even the most reluctant participants.
They’ll have a taste of traditional Welsh food (as well as having a go at cooking their own over the fire!) before reflecting on what they’ve discovered and becoming storytellers themselves.
Aside from the core activities, talk to us about including other challenges such as orienteering, the countryside code, or anything else which would help you link it back to your classroom teaching. All our workshops are differentiated to suit age and ability from KS1-KS4.
