An educational scheme of work has been created for nursery and early years primary school pupils as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations this summer for S4C’s children’s service Cyw.
Commissioned by S4C and written and designed by Carmarthen-based educational resources company Canolfan Peniarth, the educational pack is available online at s4c.cymru/cyw for Welsh-language and English-language primary teachers and nursery group leaders throughout Wales.
The colourful fun-filled pack has been designed in conjunction with the curriculum‘s Early Years Foundation Phase Framework and is packed with original and relevant activities. The S4C Cyw work scheme develops literacy and numeracy skills, encouraging young pupils to work independently and develop creativity.
Alongside the scheme of work, activity sheets are available in PDF format online.
S4C Content Commissioner, children’s programmes, Sioned Wyn Roberts said, "We are delighted to be launching this educational Scheme of Work to coincide with the Cyw anniversary celebrations. It is certain to add to the enjoyment of S4C children's programmes for all nursery children and early years pupils speaking or learning to speak Welsh. It is truly the icing on the birthday cake!"
Director of Canolfan Peniarth, Gwydion Wynne said, “the commission has been an amazing opportunity to work alongside S4C to celebrate one of their flagship characters by authoring fun education Welsh language content for children aged 2-5 in various educational settings across Wales and raising awareness of Cyw within the home.”
