Published 22 June 2015


Amser Twf at Cowbridge LibraryThe team behind an S4C science programme paid a visit to Cowbridge library this week.


Preparing for series three of Corff Cymru, the team dropped into the libraries Amser Twf session, a rhyme and song group for parents with babies of pre-school age aimed at encouraging them introduce Welsh to their children at a young age.


Part of the series will be looking at child development, with the team following several families and their children to see how they develop.


And one family being featured on the programme, Non Smith and her daughter Bethan, are regulars at the Amser Twf sessions in Cowbridge.


The sessions are run by Sioned Stephens, Field Officer for Tyfu Gyda’r Gymraeg, which means Growing with Welsh.

Parents are taught to sing Welsh songs and rhymes as well as read bilingual books, and are encouraged to watch Welsh language children’s programmes with their children, and download Welsh apps for use in the home.


Community Librarian, Melanie Weeks said: “We are delighted that Sioned visits us every week with Amser Twf. The babies really enjoy the singing and rhymes and it is a great opportunity for parents to get together in the library.


“The library has a great range of books for babies and children in Welsh and a growing collection of bilingual titles.”
