Ffa-la-la has created the perfect solution that will help your school to adapt to these radical changes. And your pupils will have FUN doing it!Read more
Since participating in Ffa-la-la workshops both pupils and teachers are more enthusiastic about the Welsh language and are more confident to get involved with incidental Welsh around school. The songs have really stuck with the children. I regularly hear them in the playground singing the songs with one another, which is lovely to hear and something that wasn’t happening before we started using Ffa-la-la. For us as teachers, it means they’re actively reinforcing their language patterns and meeting Welsh government requirements in a way that they enjoy.
Since introducing Ffa-la-la, the children’s understanding of Welsh has increased. We have Reception children who are now using Welsh incidentally in a variety of situations in class.
We saw a significant improvement in the children’s confidence as they used the language patterns. Ffa-la-la’s teaching resources are also excellent.
Ffa-la-la has been inspirational for our staff and children
I would highly recommend Ffa-la-la. The children got so much out of this way of teaching Welsh.

The Ffa-la-la programme gives pupils the best opportunity to develop communication skills in Welsh. Our programme aims to improve skill and use of the language so that pupils can speak Welsh confidently in and out of the classroom.
Yes. Please get in touch here and we’ll send you a free taster workshop.
Our programme of workshops encourage the pupils to enjoy learning Welsh and therefore helps to promote a strong Welsh ethos within the school. Typically, schools collect photos, videos and testimonials from pupils and include these in the school’s evidence portfolio.
Foundation Phase however some schools choose to use the programme for other year groups as a ‘Welsh language refresher experience’
You will receive 6 videos. All of our videos will be available within a membership site which you can play on any digital device.
Yes. Each 40 minute video has been divided in to different chapters concentrating on different language patterns. You can either watch each video as a whole or choose to show one chapter (i.e one language pattern) at a time.
Each school will receive a physical and digital resource pack. The resource comprises of four components:
Songs – The songs used have been specifically arranged to aid the teaching of each language pattern. Both vocal and instrumental versions of each song are provided to allow practitioners the freedom to adapt the words and have fun with the music. Included in the resource, alongside the written lyrics of the songs, is a glossary of words and the phonetic spellings, making this resource accessible for both proficient and novice Welsh speakers.
Activities – We have created lively activities that are stimulating and further enrich the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of each language pattern. Some activities have music-based approaches, using rhythm and repetition. Other activities are based around circle-time activities, allowing pupils to have shared responsibility for the outcome. Some are drama led.
Written activities – Our written activities further develop pupils’ understanding of the simple sentence structures. These appealing activities can be adapted, based on the pupils’ abilities in each class and are for two groups of different ability.
There are no minimum or maximum numbers.
No. Pupils can participate in the workshop in the classroom or in an open space such as the school hall.
Yes. This is a one time fee and you receive all workshops and learning materials in advance. We will send you the workshops via an on-line membership portal so that you can access them at any time.
