Resource of the Month: November 2017: Tric a Chlic

Tric a Chlic is a popular resource published by Canolfan Peniarth that has been specially developed to help foundation phase children with their Welsh reading, writing and spelling.  The reading scheme, which is used extensively throughout primary schools in Wales, is a progressive and systematic synthetic phonic scheme which incorporates three steps. The pack includes a CD-rom for every step of the scheme, which is full of fun activities and games to print out.  The package has been carefully developed to help children learn the sound of each letter, and to read and spell.

Bangor University’s School of Education recommend that all primary trainees familiarise themselves with the series owing to its popularity in schools.

The Tric a Chlic reading scheme is available to view in the Primary Resources Room at the Normal Site Library with individual items available for borrowing.
