Week Eleven

Coloured printed map of Wales and Anglesey

Welcome to week eleven, this weeks’ task is all about Welsh heroes. Below are a few statements about some Welsh people who have shaped Wales and even the World we live in today. Use the limited information as a starting point to help you research and discover more about these great people!

 When you are done, don’t forget to share your answers with us and any other interesting facts you find out about these great people along the way, there is a lot to learn that is for sure! To expand on your task, why not research some more Welsh legends we have not mentioned and send us information on those people too? The more the merrier!

We hope you enjoy and learn lots and can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
