Welsh Baccalaureate Community Challenge Finished with all school in the time between February and April. Including Ysgol David Hughes (Menai Bridge), Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni, Ysgol Tryfan (Bangor)and Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones (Amlwch). All schools will now concentrate on the Wiki Clubs. Some will be working with Primary school children, some will be targeting teachers and some will be targeting local community homes. Four pupils from Ysgol Syr Thomas Jones (who had previously worked on the Welsh BAC initiative) went to their local Primary school to carry out a workshop with year 5 pupils. The plan was to write STEM orientated articles and try to get more girls involved in STEM subjects. This happened on the morning of the 16th of July.

WiciBach Ongoing Primary School work where we target year 5 and 6 pupils. Wikipedia awareness sessions and Workshops involving research, coding, referencing, uploading pictures. We visited 8 new schools between the period of May-July and created 1-2 accounts for each school.

STEM subjects As part of our Wikimedia UK targets we decided to create a new WiciMôn module that concentrated on STEM subjects. We have received permission from WJEC to use their digital material (and of course refer back to them) and work with GCSE pupils to write articles on things they are studying in class as a tool to revise for their exams. It's a good way of reinforcing what they've learnt already in the classroom. There were two schools participating - Ysgol Uwchradd Bodedern and Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen, Caernarfon. And the pupils were handpicked by the STEM coordinator in the school. These pupils had to be pretty strong in their Welsh Language to participate.(Around 8-10 pupils in total.) We also had a meeting with another school - Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni and the STEM coordinator is eager to try this new module out for September on wards. The plan is to spread these sessions out over the next 12 months and have them whenever these pupils have an exam. (or few weeks prior.)

WiciNatur A new project concentrating on weaving nature with Wikipedia. This project involved two Primary schools on the Island. Ysgol Gynradd Biwmares and Ysgol Llangoed. These schools have a nature reserve and the aim of the project was to write a few articles about it. This included facts about the nature reserve itself and the species/animals/plants found there. It was a project ran together with another of Menter Mon's projects - Cwlwm Seiriol. The first session was an introduction to year 5 and 6 about Wicipedia. Then there was a presentation explaining Cwlwm Seiriol's work and ending on how both projects would benefit from each other, namely writing about the nature reserve and putting everything on the Welsh Wikipedia. This would also involve taking pictures and loading them on WikiMedia Commons. The second session was going to the nature reserve itself to take pictures and to collect information. The third session would be feeding the information on Wici. We created a video documenting the whole process as well.

Ysgol Gynradd Biwmares - 5/7, 12/7, 19/7 Ysgol Gynradd Llangoed - 4/6, 11/6, 2/7

Wythnos Addysg Oedolion/Adult Learners' week This was a project with The Anglesey County Council called 'Activities for Adult Week'. WiciMon were called in to run a workshop with year 5 and 6 pupils of Ysgol Rhyd y Llan in Llanfaethlu. The pupils then would teach the adults how to feed information on Wicipedia as part of the event.The pupils created their very own presentation about the world of Wikipedia that older people would understand.

Festival of Innovation Opportunity to work with STEM Gogledd - an organization that promotes Science in schools. One day event where 5/6 schools had the opportunity to write information on Wikipedia with the help of ex journalist (now politician) Rhun ap Iorwerth.

Strategic Goal 1Golygu

Increase the quality and quantity of coverage of subjects that are currently underrepresented on Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects


  • Through participating in the Adult Learner Week activities (two afternoons) we researched and wrote about Anglesey history. Shipwrecks, old roman coins found at burial sites/chambers and so on.
