Mae'r planhigion yn ymddangos!

Penny Tomkins, 11 Ionawr 2022

Helo Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Diolch am rannu eich data tywydd a'ch lluniau! Rydym wedi bod yn rhannu 'sylwad yr wythnos' ar Twitter ac rwyf wedi cynnwys y rhain yma.

Rwyf wedi mwynhau darllen eich sylwadau a chlywed eich meddyliadau ar y tywydd. Mae'n gyffrous clywed bod rhai planhigion wedi cychwyn tyfu! Rwyf wedi rhannu rhai o'ch sylwadau isod.

Cofiwch wylio eich planhigion yn agos dros yr wythnosau nesaf, i weld sut maen nhw'n newid. Gofynnwn am fesuriad uchder i'r wefan unwaith mae'r blodyn wedi agor yn llawn. Ond os ydych hefo'r diddordeb, cadwch gofnodion eich hun o dwf eich planhigion am hwyl?

Yn ystod yr wythnosau nesa byddwn yn dadansoddi'r data a gofnodwyd i ddyfalu pryd y bydd ein planhigion yn blodeuo! Plîs rhowch yr holl ddata rydych wedi'i gasglu hyd yn hyn i'r wefan cyn gynted ag y gallwch, er mwyn helpu i sicrhau bod ein rhagfynegiadau mor gywir â phosibl.

Os ydych wedi colli rhai dyddiau neu os nad ydych yn cymryd rhan yn y prosiect ond yr hoffech ei ddilyn gyda'ch ysgol, gellir defnyddio gwefan WOW y MET Office i gasglu a rhannu darlleniadau tywydd ar gyfer eich ardal.

Plîs rhannwch luniau, lluniadau a gwybodaeth am unrhyw gamau yr ydych yn eu cymryd  ynghylch newid yn yr hinsawdd gyda ni drwy e-bost a Twitter.

Daliwch ati gyda'r gwaith da Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Athro'r Ardd

Cofnodion Tywydd Wythnosol

Penny Tomkins, 10 Tachwedd 2021

Helo Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Rwyf isio rhoi diolch mawr i chi gyd am eich gwaith caled yn plannu eich bylbiau. Wnaethom ni plannu dros 10,000 o fylbiau ar draws y DU! Mi welais o’r llunia chafodd pawb llawer o hwyl yn helpu!

Wnaeth Cofnodion Tywydd cychwyn ar 1 Tachwedd. Mae 'na adnoddau dysgu ar y wefan i helpu paratoi am gymryd cofnodion tywydd. Rwyf wedi atodi hyn rhag ofn bod rhai heb ei gweld eto. Mae’r adnodd hyn yn helpu ymateb cwestiynau pwysig fel pam yw mesur tywydd yn bwysig i’n harbrawf.

Defnyddiwch eich siart tywydd i gofnodi'r glaw a’r tymheredd pob ddiwrnod y ydych yn yr ysgol. Ar ddiwedd yr wythnos, cofnodwch mewn i’r wefan i rannu eich canfyddiadau. Fedrwch hefyd gadael sylwadau a chwestiynau i fi ymateb yn fy blog nesaf!

Plîs gadewch i mi wybod sut ydych yn wneud, a rhannwch luniau trwy Twitter ac e-bost.

Daliwch ati Gyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Athro’r Ardd

 

Sylwadau a rhannwyd hefo'r wythnos gyntaf o ddata tywydd:

Stanford in the Vale Primary School: This week was frosty and we had some frost in the morning. We’re looking forward to seeing the weather changes.

Oaklands Primary: Hi Professor Plant - it's been a dry but cold week here in Aberaman. Our first frosty day on Monday, lovely sunshine after a very rainy Hallowe'en which washed away all our labels. Luckily, we know which way round our bulbs were planted and we decided as a class that we'd make sure we look after everyone's pots so it doesn't matter that they are not individually named at the moment. Phew! See you next week!

Ysgol Penalltau: Diolch am y bylbiau, ond dim glaw yr wythnos yma!

Pil Primary School: It has been very cold and dry this week.

Darran Park Primary: The weather is a lot colder and drier this week

St Josephs Cathedral Primary: No rain records as rain gauge was lost. We have found this now so will take records from next Monday.

Ysgol Gymraeg Dewi Sant: Roedd y glawiad yn uchel dydd Llun oherwydd fod llawer o law wedi syrthio dros hanner tymor.

Prynhawn y Plant

Dan Mitchell, 6 Awst 2021

Os gofynnwch i blentyn ysgol gynradd beth fuon nhw’n wneud yn yr ysgol y diwrnod hwnnw, byddant yn aml yn sôn am amser chwarae. Amser chwarae yw'r amser pan maen nhw'n cael penderfynu’n union beth sy'n digwydd. Maen nhw'n cael dewis y gemau, y teganau, hyd yn oed y chwaraewyr, o fewn y paramedrau diogel a roddir iddynt. Ac o fewn y paramedrau hyn, maen nhw'n dysgu. Dysgu sut i symud a'r hyn y gallant wneud yn gorfforol. Dysgu sut i ymddwyn yn gymdeithasol, trwy rannu a gofalu. Dysgu sut i ddelio ag emosiynau pan nad yw'r gêm yn mynd eu ffordd. Mae amser chwarae yn hanfodol.

Ac mae'r dysgu'n dechrau ymhell cyn adeg ysgol. Prynhawn y Plant yw un o fy hoff ddigwyddiadau rheolaidd y mae'r amgueddfa'n ei gynnal. Mae'n gyfle i rieni ddod â'u rhai bach ar gyfer rhywfaint o chwarae dan oruchwyliaeth mewn amgylchedd tawel a diogel. Rydyn ni yno i gynorthwyo, chwarae ychydig, a rhoi pâr ychwanegol o lygaid i rieni ar eu rhai bach. Y rhan orau yw bod hawl gennym ddefnyddio adnoddau’r tîm dysgu, a llunio profiad a thema wahanol bob tro.

Os yw'n ddiwrnod y jyngl, byddwn yn gosod yr ystafell gydag addurniadau chwarae meddal ar thema'r jyngl. Logiau meddal i blant bach ddringo drostynt, rygiau blewog gwyrdd i gropian drostynt. Yna gallwn ddod â'r anifeiliaid allan - y teigrod, y mwncïod, yr eliffantod. Gall plant chwarae gyda nhw, gan wneud straeon eu hunain ac ychwanegu synau a'u symudiadau eu hunain atynt. Hyd yn oed os nad yw plentyn yn siarad eto, mae copïo synau a symudiadau yn eu helpu i ddysgu.

Nid symudiad a sain yn unig y mae plant yn hoffi. Mae cyffwrdd yn hanfodol ar gyfer dysgu cynnar. Mae plant ifanc wrth eu bodd yn archwilio eitemau â'u dwylo, neu hyd yn oed â'u cegau, felly mae ein blychau teganau wedi'u llenwi â blociau syml y gellir eu glanhau yn hawdd iddynt eu harchwilio. Mae gennym lawer o flychau synhwyraidd thematig, wedi'u llenwi â ffwr ffug meddal, ffabrig lledr garw, a phob math o weadau rhyfeddol i'r rhai bach eu cyffwrdd a'u teimlo.

Pan fydd y plant wedi bennu ar chwarae, mae'n bryd cael stori. Mae gennym gasgliad enfawr o lyfrau plant hardd, sy'n addas ar gyfer unrhyw un o'n themâu, y gellir eu perfformio mewn modd bywiog neu dawel, gan ryngweithio â'r gynulleidfa neu beidio. Yr un peth rydyn ni wedi'i ddysgu yw sut i ddarllen y gynulleidfa ifanc.

Er bod pethau'n wahanol ar hyn o bryd, gydag ambell rhan o'r amgueddfa ar gau o hyd, rydym wedi llwyddo i lunio llawer o adnoddau ar-lein ar gyfer y plant bach. Mae gennym ni straeon, gweithgareddau celf a chrefft a llawer o symudiadau ac odl gwirion yn Gymraeg a Saesneg i'ch cadw chi i fynd nes ein bod ni'n gwbl agored eto.

Hela Ffosilau yn Llanilltud Fawr

Louise Rogers, 4 Awst 2021

Yn Llanilltud Fawr ym Mro Morgannwg mae traeth caregog poblogaidd – lleoliad prydferth ryfeddol wrth droed y clogwyni gyda golygfeydd ar draws Môr Hafren at Minehead ar ddiwrnod clir. Ond yn bwysicach i chi a fi, mae’r traeth yn un o’r lleoliadau gorau yng Nghymru i ganfod trysorau newydd i helwyr ffosilau ac archwilwyr byd natur. Felly ar brynhawn Llun llwyd, i ffwrdd â fi i’n hoff draeth gyda fy offer a’n llyfr braslunio i weld beth allwn i’i ganfod…

Mae cwymp creigiau yn ddigwyddiad rheolaidd ar draeth Llanilltud Fawr, a nifer o bobl wedi cael eu brifo neu eu lladd, yn anffodus. Er bod temtasiwn mawr i chwilio am ffosilau ymhlith creigiau sydd newydd ddisgyn, mae’n hanfodol bod helwyr yn cadw draw o’r clogwyni! Doedd dim cwymp yn amlwg wrth i fi gerdded at y traeth, ond fe ymddangosodd hwn o fewn ychydig lathenni. Atgof amserol i gadw’n glir!

Pa offer es i gyda fi medde chi? Does dim angen labordy gwyddonol a byddin o balaeontolegwyr arnoch chi wrth hela ffosilau! Gall unrhyw un â llygad dda roi cynnig arni.

Ond cyn bwrw ati, cofiwch:

  • Wirio amseroedd y llanw. Mae’n fwy diogel dechrau hela ffosilau pan fydd y llanw ar drai, er mwyn osgoi cael eich dal gan y llanw’n codi.
  • Gwisgo dillad ac esgidiau addas. Mae’n hanfodol cael esgidiau cadarn ar dir creigiog fel hwn, a bod yn barod am newid sydyn yn y tywydd.
  • Gall hela ffosilau fod yn waith sychedig, felly dewch â digon o fwyd a diod i’ch cadw i fynd. Efallai bod y caffi agosaf yn bell!

Fy offer

  • Esgidiau cryf
  • Dŵr yfed
  • Rholyn cegin i lanhau canfyddiadau diddorol
  • Rhywbeth i ddogfennu’r profiad – llyfr braslunio, llyfr nodiadau, ffôn (gyda chamera), pren mesur pensel a beiro.

Fe benderfynais i gerdded i’r chwith, ar bellter diogel o’r clogwyn. Mae’r tirlun yn greigiog ac amrywiol – perffaith ar gyfer pyllau cerrig a hela ffosilau.

Fe ges i olwg gyflym ar y siâl cyn dechrau ar y clogfeini. Y ffosilau mwyaf cyffredin i’w cafod ar y traeth yw molysgiaid, fel amonitau a deufalfiau, ond efallai y gwelwch chi weddillion esgyrn pysgod neu ichthyosaur os ydych chi’n lwcus! Gallwch chi hefyd weld esiamplau prydferth o gregyn modern. Wrth i fi nesu at y clogfeini mawr, fe welais i olion oedd yn edrych fel amonit, ac aros i archwilio ymhellach.

Dyma fi’n tynnu braslun syml o’r canfyddiad a’i fesur. Dyma fi hefyd yn defnyddio fy ffôn i gymryd llun o’r lleoliad, gyda bys yn pwyntio at y ffosil. Mae hon yn ffordd syml iawn o gofnodi lleoliad sbesimen diddorol er mwyn ei ailddarganfod os oes angen.            

Roeddwn i’n eiddgar i ganfod mwy, felly dyma fi’n symud i lawr y traeth. Roedd y clogfeini fan hyn wedi chwalu fwyfwy a cefais fy nenu at un yn benodol. Roeddwn i wedi canfod ôl amonit arall! Fe benderfynais i beidio morthwylio ar y garreg o gwmpas yr olion, gan fod hyn yn aml yn niweidio’r ffosil yn hytrach na’i ddatod yn daclus. Dychmygwch ddinistrio ar ddamwain gydag un ergyd esgeulus rywbeth sydd wedi goroesi am filiynau o flynyddoedd – mae’n anfon ias oer drwydda i! Penderfynais i adael y ffosil yn y fan. Yn anffodus mae gormod o gasglu ar draeth Llanilltud Fawr, a dwi’n credu dylai’r esiampl hwn gael ei adael i eraill ei fwynhau. Efallai y byddwch chi’n ei ganfod wrth ymweld!

Os ydych chi’n canfod unrhyw ffosilau neu wrthrychau diddorol, cysylltwch â’r Amgueddfa drwy’r wefan. Rydyn ni’n dwlu gweld eich canfyddiadau, ac mae ein tîm o arbenigwyr wastad yn barod i adnabod canfyddiadau a rhoi gwybodaeth bellach.

Cofiwch, gall pawb fod yn balaeontolegydd!

Hela hapus!
