The 'Welsh Not' was a device introduced to stop children speaking the Welsh language at school. Students could be asked to think of reasons why Welsh was considered a waste of time in schools during the latter half of the nineteenth century. In groups, pupils could discuss why the use of the 'Welsh Not' was a devious way of persuading children not to speak Welsh.
