Welsh phrase book for parents to support their children with the acquisition of the Welsh language,

Welsh Book for Parents

20th September 2022


Criw Cymraeg will be responsible for creating a simple Welsh phrase book to engage with their children at home in developing Welsh language acquisition and to encourage the whole school community to be part of the project. This is to be placed on the school newsletter / Latest News. However, we have also attached a copy of the Welsh Scheme of work and oracy scheme of work so parents wishing to go beyond the parent booklet we have designed to explore the acquisition of Welsh further in the homes at an age appropriate level.

Diolch yn fawr,

Criw Cymraeg

Dear Parent(s’), Guardian )s’) and Children,

Please find attached a copy of a booklet that is intended to support you in the use of Welsh phrases and vocabulary you can use at home.
