Displays in Cynlais School &
The Quick Cricket Cup

This display on the Victorians shows one of the staples of primary school history teaching.

'The Lord's Prayer' in Welsh begins

Ein Tad, yr hwn wyt yn y nefoedd
Sancteiddier dy enw

'Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name'

The school uniform of Cylais Primary School on display upon a board.

The display area around this sink unit had been utilised for 'Instead of Said' teaching the children to use words like 'exclaimed' or 'whispered' and so on, so as to make their writing more interested.

This display about the Solar System shows the major planets and other astronomical features.

Quick Cricket Cup

This cup was standing on a window ledge inside Cynlais School.

This slightly battered cup was inscribed with the titles:-
