Cymraeg - Welsh
Yn yr Ysgol - In school
In school we follow the ‘Flic a Flac’ scheme in the Foundation Phases. The scheme follows two puppets called Flic and Flac. We have the puppets in each class and they are used to engage pupils in their learning. There are Flic a Flac games available to purchase on iTunes.
Key Stage 2, we follow the ‘Antur Anhygoel’ schemes. The schemes are designed around the ‘Pod Antur’ resources developed by ‘Tinopolis’. Children are given opportunities to practise Welsh in a range of real-life, engaging contexts. Year 3 follow Crad and Ffion around Wales, while Year 4 follow Izzy and Dyfs. The children in Year 5 and 6 follow Tom and Becca around Wales and beyond!

We are the Criw Cymraeg of Pembroke Primary School. We have at least one member from each class from Year 2 to Year 6 in our crew. Each of us was voted by our class to be members of the Criw Cymraeg. You will be able to spot us around the school as each member wears a draig cymraeg badge.
What do we do?
We meet every week in our lunchtime. In our meetings, we decide on the ‘Cymal Gymraeg o'r Wythnos’ for the following week and then teach this phrase to the school in the weekly Gwasanaeth Cymraeg. We also use the various displays around the school to display the weekly pattern and to inform other pupils, staff and parents on any updates regarding Welsh. During our meetings, we also have chance to discuss the agendas and to add our own suggestions. As the Criw Cymraeg, we have a responsibility to help improve Welsh in Pembroke Primary. We encourage both children and staff to use Welsh as often as possible, both in and out of class.
The Criw Cymraeg decided to introduce a reward system for speaking Welsh. We reward both children and staff for speaking Welsh in and out of the classroom by awarding them with a ‘Siaradwyr yr Wythnos’. During Gwasanaeth Cymraeg a Welsh hymn is sung, the Welsh phrase is introduced, Siaradwyr yr Wythnos is presented and a Welsh prayer is said.
These are some of the phrases staff and pupils here at Pembroke Primary use every day.
