Tric a Chlic is one of the most popular resources that Canolfan Peniarth has published. The Tric a Chlic resource is a progressive and systematic synthetic phonic reading programme for the Foundation Phase, which incorporates three steps. Following the success of the scheme within primary schools across Wales, Canolfan Peniarth has now developed two apps to go with the programme.

This edition of the app is compatible with mobile phones as well as tablets. Find and download on your app store.

Playing actively in and around the home

In times of uncertainty, playing is important for children and teenagers. Parents and carers are facing a worrying time as schools and activities that normally keep their children active are closed. Despite this new stress, children will still want and need to play.  Playing helps children explore, learn about their world and feel happy. Making sure there is time, space and freedom to play is a great way of making sure everyone is keeping active and having fun!  Our latest resource – Playing actively in and around the home – includes information about: 

  • The importance of play in times of stress
  • What the UK Chief Medical Officers’ physical activity guidelines say
  • Ensuring children are active whilst socially distancing 
  • Playing actively indoors
  • Play ideas for parents.
