Dylan Thomas

Children in 4L were keen to hear more about the wonderful work created by children in Class 4 5 L last year. So after special request, the web page has once again been made available, with a few ammendments. 

I am sure this will  be of great help to those of you who have chosen to write about Dylan Thomas as your Eisteddfod Creative Writing Project. 

Two exhibitions about Dylan Thomas's life were staged for his centenary:

  Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea 

 National Library

Did you or your parents remember to catch any of these programmes we discussed in class?

As you know, the year 2014 marked the centenary year of the famous Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.


We  learned  about the poet himself, some of his famous works

and where they can be heard today.

We have really enjoyed his poems and hope to learn so much more.
