Any school using the Ffa-la-la resource will be giving pupils a valuable experience. Pupils will be provided with a good foundation in Welsh language patterns, which will develop their linguistic skills from Foundation Phase to Year 6.
The Ffa-la-la resource supports and enhances the teaching of Welsh in the Foundation Phase by teaching the 'Continuum of Welsh Language Patterns' using a creative approach. These 20 language patterns are the basis of the Ffa-la-la resource, which is imaginative, inspiring and fun!
This flexible resource is made up of a collection of pre-recorded lessons, songs, creative activities and written activities designed specifically for non Welsh-speaking practitioners to use in English medium primary schools.
The activities presented in this resource allow practitioners to develop pupils’ understanding and enjoyment of the Welsh language, and includes helpful tips for their own language use and understanding.
