The Welsh Language Charter, a project to encourage the use of Welsh socially in primary schools in Wales, has welcomed two new characters. The two heroes on posters and badges will encourage children between 4 and 7 years old to use the Welsh language in the playground, at home and the classroom.
As part of the Charter, each individual school completes a baseline exercise to determine current language use before developing an action plan to work towards a bronze, silver or gold award. It encourages participation from every member of the school community - pupils, parents, school governors and the wider community.
Communication is at the heart of modern life – growing up bilingual meant that children will be developing skills for life. You can read more about the Welsh Language Charter in your area on your local schools website.
