Together we can make a difference


Welsh is a wonderful and important language for our children to learn. In our school we want children that are confident and competent using and understanding the Welsh Language and strive to provide opportunities throughout the day for pupils to practise  these skills.



In our class we will: 

  • Practice and use the Welsh language during daily Helpu Heddiw sessions, through singing different songs and playing lots of games.  
  • Our Criw Cymraeg members are our representatives at a school level to drive Welsh development, but EVERYONE in our school community has a part to play…children, parents, staff, governors and volunteers.
  • Try and use our Welsh around the school including on the Yard
  • Have a Welsh session every Week where we will play games, read different books, sing songs and learn and revise new Welsh sentences. 


Pattrwm Yr Wythnos - Pattern of the Week



At Craig Yr Hesg we recognise the importance of celebrating the welsh language. We have daily Helpu Heddiw sessions where we play lots of different welsh games, read books, practice Welsh we have learnt previously, learn Welsh songs. We also have a designated Welsh lesson EVERY week to allow you to develop your love of Welsh.


Every week we will have a new language pattern that we are trying to use. I will update our Pattern every week so you can practice at home with your family. Also I will leave previous patterns up also if you would like to keep revising them.
