Cornish magazine targets children
Children across Cornwall could soon be learning to speak Cornish at school.

The Cornish Language Fellowship is releasing a Cornish CD and magazine for nursery and primary school children later this year.

The fellowship say that it will help youngsters express their identity and understand Cornish place names.

Cornish campaigners won a victory last year when the government said pupils could be registered as "Cornish" in a national educational survey.

The aim is to enable education officials to study the progress made in schools by children from different ethnic backgrounds.
