Croeso i'r Clwb Criw Cymraeg!
What do the Criw Cymraeg do?
The Criw Cymraeg are responsible for helping and encouraging all of the pupils at Darran Park Primary to speak and learn Welsh in a fun way. They are a pupil voice group, similar to the school council, and they help make decisions and take actions to help us reach our Welsh language targets in a way that is engaging, fun and responsive to our children's needs and interests. This year we are striving to achieve our Cymraeg Campus Bronze Award, which aims to encourage the whole school community to speak Welsh and enjoy our Welshness! Take a look at the video and document below to see what our targets involve...
In school, we play lots of games to help us learn Welsh in a fun way and we learn how to teach other children these games too. Check out the document below to see some of the games we play- maybe you would like to play them at home too! There is also a document called the Welsh Continuum added below and this shows the language patterns for all year groups.
We play language games every day in Helpwr Heddiw time and give Tocyn Iaith points out to anyone who is trying to use Welsh. The class with the most Tocyn iaith by the end of the week get extra playtime on a Friday or get to keep Delyth y Ddraig (our very own Welsh dragon) for the week in their classrooms.
At the moment, we are focussing on these targets...
We are lucky enough to have support from the Urdd in Darran Park Primary. Tom has come into school to play games in Welsh with the junior classes and Welsh Club, which was lots of fun. Mistar Urdd is going to be visiting our school soon and we are hoping to enter into the national Eisteddfod again this year! Check back for updates soon...
