Class 4: Blwyddyn Newydd dda i chi

Traditional New Year celebration in Wales (Hen Galan) is January 13th. This is the day that the Mari Lwyd would visit houses and children would ask for Calennig. Children carried a charm made from an apple called a ‘Perllan’. They sang a special rhyme and may be rewarded with a treat in recognition of their singing and good wishes. Today in Forest School, we made a Perllan with cloves, greenery and sticks.
