Croeso i Hafan Criw Cymreig!

Who are the Criw Cymreig? 

We are a crew of enthusiastic Welsh speakers who are working hard to encourage everyone to speak Welsh in all aspects of school life. There are 12 people in our crew with members from Years 1 to Year 6. 

The Criw Cymraeg are responsible for encouraging the use of the Welsh language throughout the school in addition to promoting a positive Welsh ethos. In Criw Cymraeg meetings this year, the ‘Patrwm yr Wythnos’ is decided for the following week, this phrase is then taught in the Assembly.

What we do?

As Criw Cymraeg, we have given ourselves the following job description…

  • teach children throughout the school the Welsh ‘Patrwm yr Wythnos’ (Phrase of the Week).
  • collect Tocyn Iaith points and award winner during assembly.
  • Promote a Welsh ethos in Whitchurch Primary School by encouraging learners to speak Welsh;
  • Deliver the Cwestiwn Cymraeg in assembly;
  • Implement Cymraeg Campus and gather evidence to achieve our school targets;
  • Teach Welsh games on the yard.

Objective :

The simple objective of the Language Charter is to provide a clear framework, which can be used to promote and increase the use of Welsh by children in a whole school context. In a nutshell, the Charter’s main aim is to promote a strong Welsh ethos in our school and to provide a range of enriching activities that propel the children to enjoy learning Welsh.

The Language Charter exhorts participation from every member of the school community, and members of the school workforce and council, the pupils and their parents, school governors and the wider community are all encouraged to take full ownership of it. The  Criw Cymraeg (Welsh Crew) are instrumental in leading and driving the Language Charter forward at St David's Primary.

Bronze Awards :

To ensure that all efforts are rewarded, the Charter is based on the principle that every school follows challenging but attainable targets in connection with promoting the use of the Welsh language. The specific targets included in the Language Charter can form part of a school’s Welsh Development Plan.
