Name and Type of setting:Camp Coconuts – ASC/Full Day Care/Wrap Around 

Local Authority Area:Vale of Glamorgan 

Name and position of person in setting completing this case study:Ellen Moores Senior Nursery Nurse 

Date completed: 26.01.2022

Camp Coconuts provides fun packed holiday clubs during the school holidays as well as after school and full wrap around care from 7:30am – 6:30pm during term time for children aged 3-11 years in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan. The wrap around is provided for a number of schools in the area, one of which is Welsh medium. 

Before starting her journey, Ellen, had a basic understanding of the Welsh language from her school years, however, as none of Ellen’s family and friends spoke Welsh she did not have many opportunities to practice; because of this she felt that she had forgotten a lot of it. 

Ellen is passionate about the Welsh culture and language and wanted a way that would help her regain Welsh language skills, improve her confidence and increase the amount of Welsh used in Camp Coconuts. 

After receiving a marketing email from Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs, Ellen decided to enrol on the Camau Entry Part 1 course. 

Ellen liked the Camau online self-study course as she was able to do it in her own time, log in and out in the middle of sessions and found the interactive aspect of the course very helpful.   

Attending the Caffi Clebran sessions held by Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs Welsh Language Coordinator Ellen states: “The support was really good. Just knowing that you were always there via email or phone if I needed you.” 

The Camau Entry Part 1 course has increased Ellen’s confidence allowing her to implement more Welsh in the setting such as discussing the weather at school collection, using more key vocabulary like ‘tacluso’, colours and numbers. 

Ellen is looking forward to continue her Welsh language journey and has enrolled on the Entry part 2 course. 

Ellen would recommend enrolling on the Camau course and states that it: “Helps to give you a basic understanding at the start but also challenges you as you progress.”
