Ysgol Croes Atti la Evening Leader:

An innovative project aimed at encouraging Flintshire children to learn Welsh as they play is proving a hit with youngsters.

A series of weekly 'Yard Games' have been running at Ysgol Croes Atti in Flint.

The school's Year 4 pupils have been working with children and youth officer Alaw Lewis, of Welsh language body Menter Iaith Sir y Fflint.

Alaw has been running sessions with the children, supporting the school in encouraging and developing the children's confidence in using the Welsh language in the schoolyard as well as the classroom.

During the first session the children were given homework to find out what games their parents and grandparents used to play during their childhoods. Alaw will prepare a booklet of all the old games ready for the new term in September, and says she hopes to resurrect some of the classics of the past among the younger generation….

Mi esperas ke vi uzos la informon tre freŝan ke la Brita Kongreso de Esperanto okazos en 2010 en Llandudno. Mi esperas ke vi diskonigos la informon – kaj ke vi partoprenos. Jes la Brita Kongreso – kun kelta gusto okazos de la 14a ĝis la 17a de majo 2010 en Hotelo Imperial ĉe la marbordo en la Llandudno. Oni atendas cent partprenontojn: 80 el Britio kaj 20 el aliaj landoj.
