The school Eisteddfod will take place this year on Tuesday 30th June for years 7 and 8.
The following Eisteddfod competitions are running this year. Each carries house points for the individual as well as carrying house points for the house to win.
Cymraeg Years 7 and 8
Using your art and design and IT skills coupled with a good imagination write a detailed Welsh passage about yourself in any format you wish to show how interesting a person you are. You may make this a ‘crafty’ entry, you may prepare a digital presentation, you may hand-write your entry or enter with a Word document. You may even use Publisher to prepare a colourful leaflet. Successful entries will be those whose good use of the Welsh you have learned at y Pant shines through.
The best Year 8 entry in this competition is akin to poet winning ‘The Chair’ in the National Eisteddfod. In our version the winner goes through the chairing ceremony and wins a traditionally hand carved lovespoon.
Literacy and Numeracy Competitions
These are open to any student and carry 10 house points each. Students can choose whether to enter at Bronze, Silver or Gold level (or all three) and complete their entries by hand or on the computer.
