A new website has been launched by Atebol – barddoniaeth.cymru – as a resource to introduce and analyse poetry in Key Stage 3. The website includes forty poems grouped into eight themes – including one of mine, 'Y Cadno Coch' (the red fox), from my collection Sgrwtsh! (Gomer, 2011) – and provides video readings and discussions, summaries and a range of activities.
Llyfr newydd: Teulu Tŷ Bach
Cyfres Halibalŵ is a new series of six funny stories for children aged 7 to 11 (Key Stage 2) from CAA. My story – Teulu Tŷ Bach – is brilliantly illustrated by Rhys Aneurin and is about Blodwen, Cleif and Sam the dog, a trio of weird and wonderful characters who live in a very small house nextdoor to a very mischievous cat and her very grumpy owner. Funnily enough, four of the authors – Fflur, Mari, Gwenno and I – are all 2004 graduates from the Department of Welsh and Celtic Studies at Aberystwyth University. Ideas and activities based on the stories are available on the Hwb website, and can be used to boost language and literacy both in school and at home.
Llyfr newydd: Yr Arth Aruthrol
My Welsh adaptation of a book for children by David Walliams and Tony Ross – Yr Arth Aruthrol – is now available in the shops and online. Gwales website describes it as 'a very humorous story about a white bear living in the North Pole who loves swimming, fishing, eating and sleeping. One day, she wakes from her sleep far from home. Things have never been worse, but they are about to become worse... much worse!' Published by Atebol, this adaptation was the best-selling Welsh book for children in October.
Llyfr newydd: Pawen Lawen!
Following the success of previous collections of poems for children from Gwasg Carreg Gwalch by both the current Bardd Plant Cymru and former holders of the post, a new collection has been edited by Casia Wiliam, Pawen Lawen!
