Y Dosbarth Melyn - The Yellow Classroom

This film offers a glimpse inside 'the yellow classroom' - the name widely given to classrooms for 5-7 year olds in Wales - at a bilingual primary school on the West Wales coast.

The children cross several boundary-lines countless times each day; between learning and playing, between Welsh and English languages, between the human and natural worlds.

We watch them on a typical day, as they begin to find their place in the world.
