Helo Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Heddiw yw’r diwrnod olaf i gasglu darlleniad tywydd cyn Nadolig! Byddwch yn cymryd darlleniad tywydd nesaf yr wythnos o’r 8-12 Ionawr. Wrth gofnodi eich darlleniadau i’r wefan, plîs nodwch ‘dim cofnod’ ar gyfer y dyddiau rydych i fwrdd o’r ysgol.

Does dim rhaid cymryd eich potiau adra dros y gwyliau. Os yw’r potiau mewn lle saf lle byddant ddim yn cael ei effeithio gan y gwynt, bydda nhw’n iawn. Mae'r pridd yn cadw’r bylbiau yn ddwfn yn erbyn y tywydd oer.

Mae’r tywydd wedi bod yn eithaf cynnes am y gaeaf, a bydd o’n ddiddorol i weld yr effaith mae hyn yn cael ar ein bylbiau! Gwelodd Tachwedd 2017 tymereddau ucha a llai o law na flwyddyn ddiwethaf. Ac er ein bod wedi cael ychydig llai o oriau haul na'r llynedd, oedd Tachwedd 2017 dal yr ail mwyaf heulog ers i gofnodion DU cychwyn yn 2012! Os mae’r patrwm yma yn parhau, efallai fyddwn yn weld ein blodau yn gynharach flwyddyn yma!

Mwynhewch eich gwyliau Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn.

Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda,

Athro’r Ardd a Bwlb Bychan

 

Sylwadau:

Diolch ichi am eich holl sylwadau, cawsom grynodebau tywydd manwl iawn am yr wythnosau diwethaf, ac rydw i'n hynod o falch! Rydym hefyd wedi cael gwybod gan ychydig o ysgolion bod eu planhigion wedi dechrau blaguro! Byddwn yn ddiolchgar pe gallai'r ysgolion hyn rannu lluniau gyda mi cyn ac ar ôl y gwyliau Nadolig, fel y gallwn ni i gyd weld faint maent yn tyfu yn yr amser hwn!

Diolch am eich holl waith caled Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn. Edrychaf ymlaen at barhau eto yn y Flwyddyn Newydd!

Diwrnod Meddiannu yn Amgueddfa Lleng Rufeinig Cymru.

Wnaeth disgyblion o Ysgol Gynradd Lodge Hill creu fideo i hyrwyddo ein hadnodd dysgu digidol diweddaraf - Ysgol Rufeinig.

Nod y diwrnod oedd rhoi cyfle i ddisgyblion adeiladu eu hyder ac i wella eu sgiliau digidol a chyflwyno.

Cymerodd y disgyblion ran mewn sesiwn chwarae rôl am y dosbarth Rhufeinig.

Yna creodd ffilm eu hunain o'r enw - 'Beth oedd ysgol fel yn yr oes Rufeinig?' Fydd y ffilm yn cael ei ddefnyddio i hyrwyddo'r adnodd i ysgolion eraill ar wefan Casgliad Y Werin Cymru. Dysgodd y disgyblion sut i greu stori, ysgrifennu sgript a dewis actorion ar gyfer pob golygfa. 

Gwelwch y fideo yma https://www.peoplescollection.wales/items/635461

Mae'r adborth a'r awgrymiadau a gasglwyd gan y plant yn cael eu cynnwys yn y fersiwn derfynol o adnodd digidol. Mae'r adnodd yn cefnogi ein gweithdy chwarae rôl boblogaidd o'r enw Grammaticus - Ysgol Rufeinig.

Yn ystod y dydd, cafodd y disgyblion gyfle i ddarganfod mwy am arfau Rhufeinig. Ar ôl cwblhau'r her, cyflwynwyd tystysgrif i bob disgybl gan Eleri Thomas – sef un o'r Ymddiriedolwyr ‘kids in museums’.

Bydd yr adnodd - Ysgol Rufeinig ar gael ar wefan yr Amgueddfa a Hwb yn Fis Ionawr.

Yn gynharach mis yma, gwelwyd disgyblion Ysgol Cardiff High yn meddiannu Atriwm newydd yn Sain Ffagan. Llenwyd y gofod gan waith wedi ei greu gan dros 80 o ddisgyblion Celf, Cerdd a Drama wedi ei selio ar gasgliadau’r amgueddfa. Roedd hyn yn ddiwedd i 6 wythnos o waith i’r plant, ond tua 6 mis o drefnu!

Yn yr haf, cysylltwyd Eve Oliver o Ysgol Cardiff High gyda syniad o brosiect ar gyfer disgyblion blwyddyn 10 sy’n astudio’r pynciau creadigol - celf, cerdd a drama. Y syniad oedd dod a’r plant at ei gilydd i weithio ar yr un thema. Ar ôl trafodaethau gydag Elen Phillips, Prif Guradur Hanes Cyfoes a Chymunedol penderfynwyd ar y thema ‘Protest’. Dewiswyd hwn fel thema oherwydd base’n rhoi cyfle i’r disgyblion archwilio’i chred a gwerthoedd wrth ymateb at gasgliadau’r amgueddfa.

Ar ddechrau’r prosiect, daeth 85 o ddisgyblion i Sain Ffagan ar Hydref y 4ydd er mwyn gweld rhai o’n casgliadau. Wnaeth Elen roi sgwrs am wrthrychau a’r storion du ôl iddynt. Dangoswyd gwrthrychau yn cynnwys rhai o amgylch ymladd dros y bleidlais i fenywod, protest yn erbyn hiliaeth a streic y glowyr yn yr 1980au. Roedd hyn yn gyfle i’r disgyblion clywed y straeon ond hefyd i weld y gwrthrychau, ac mi oedd hi’n bosib gweld sut oedd y plant wedi ei hysbrydoli gan hyn.

Ar ôl ymweld â Sain Ffagan, aeth y plant nôl i’r ysgol i edrych ar y themâu yn ddyfnach. Dros y 6 wythnos nesaf cafwyd sesiynau gan Timothy Howe o’r Theatr Sherman, Anita Reynolds o’r Coleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru a’r artist Anna Barratt.

Fel diwedd i’r rhan yma o’r gwaith, dychwelwyd Cardiff High i Sain Ffagan ar Dachwedd yr 16eg i arddangos a pherfformio’i gwaith. Llenwyd yr atriwm newydd yn yr amgueddfa gyda gwaith celf a pherfformiadau. Mi oedd cynulleidfa o tua 50 yn gwylio, yn cynnwys rhieni rhai o’r perfformwyr ac ambell i staff o’r amgueddfa hefyd.

Ar gyfer y perfformiad, roedd y grŵp drama wedi dewis i berfformio detholiad o’r ddrama The Radicalisation of Bradley Manning gan Tim Price gyda’r grŵp cerddoriaeth yn perfformio’r clasur Yma o Hyd gan Dafydd Iwan. Fel cefnlen i’r holl berfformiad roedd llwyth o faneri a murlenni protest wedi ei greu gan a grŵp celf. Diweddglo’r perfformiad oedd Yma o Hyd yn cael ei chanu eto, gan yr holl ddisgyblion a’r gynulleidfa. Roedd hyn berfformiad pwerus ddaeth ar holl atriwm yn fyw!

Mae’r prosiect wedi bod yn llwyddiant ysgubol gyda’r disgyblion yn edrych ar ei ddealltwriaeth o ‘Protest’ trwy ddefnyddio straeon cyfoes. Maent wedi dyfnhau ei ddealltwriaeth o’r gorffennol ac wedi magu gweledigaeth o gredoau pobl arall. I’r amgueddfa, mae hi wedi bod yn ffordd wych o weithio gydag ysgol uwchradd leol, trwy ddefnyddio model rydym yn awyddus i’w ddefnyddio eto. Rydym eisoes wedi dechrau trafod pa themâu gallwn archwilio’r flwyddyn nesaf!

Diolch yn fawr Cardiff High!

Helo Cyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Diolch am rannu eich sylwadau gyda'r data tywydd wythnos dwytha. Rwyf wedi atodi rhai yn isod. Mae llawer ohonoch yn ddweud bod y tywydd wedi oeri a bod 'na mwy o law. Mae rhai ohonoch chi hyd yn oed wedi cael eira! Dyma pam dwi am esbonio sut mae meteorolegwyr (gwyddonwyr tywydd) yn mesur eira. 

Mae mesur faint o law sy’n disgyn yn hawdd o’i gymharu â mesur faint o eira sy’n disgyn. Fydd eira ddim yn bihafio! Bydd yn aml yn cael ei chwythu gan y gwynt ac yn lluwchio, sy’n golygu bod yr eira’n ddwfn mewn mannau ond yn llawer llai dafliad carreg i ffwrdd. Oherwydd bod yr eira’n disgyn yn anghyson, bydd y mesuriadau o’r llefydd yma’n anghywir! Dyna pam mae’n rhaid mesur mewn mannau gwastad, agored ymhell o ble fydd eira’n lluwchio. Bydd eira hefyd yn chwarae gemau gyda’r Meteorolegwyr sy’n ceisio ei fesur – bydd yn toddi’n ddŵr, cyn rhewi fel iâ. Felly dyw’r eira sy’n cael ei fesur ddim bob tro yn cyfateb i faint o eira sydd wedi disgyn. Mae eira newydd yn disgyn ar ben hen eira hefyd, ac mae’n anodd dweud faint o eira sydd wedi disgyn o un diwrnod i’r llall. 

Mae’n rhaid i’r meteorolegwyr gofio holl driciau’r eira a meddwl am ffyrdd i ddarganfod faint o eira sydd wedi disgyn. Byddan nhw’n edrych ar gwymp eira (faint o eira sy’n disgyn mewn diwrnod) a dyfnder eira (cyfanswm dyfnder yr eira, hen a newydd). Un ffordd o fesur cwymp eira yw gyda ffon bren. Bydd y meteorolegwr yn gosod y pren mewn lleoliad agored lle na fydd eira’n lluwchio ac yn mesur yr eira bob chwech awr. Drwy glirio’r eira o’r pren ar ôl ei fesur, dim ond eira’r diwrnod hwnnw fydd yn cael ei fesur, a gall y gwyddonydd ddweud faint o eira sydd wedi cwympo ar y diwrnod hwnnw. 

Gallwn ni hefyd fesur eira wedi toddi ar ffurf dŵr. Gallwch chi felly ddefnyddio’ch mesurydd glaw i fesur cwymp eira. Os taw dim ond ychydig o eira sy’n cwympo, bydd yn toddi yn y mesurydd beth bynnag, ond os yw hi’n bwrw’n drwm, ewch â’r mesurydd i mewn ac aros iddo doddi’n ddŵr. Gallwch chi wedyn fesur y dŵr fel rydych chi wedi’i wneud bob wythnos, a’i gofnodi fel glawiad yn eich cofnodion tywydd. 

Os oes eira ar lawr a bod digon o amser i arbrofi, beth am fynd ati i fesur dyfnder yr eira? Y cyfan sydd ei angen arnoch chi yw pren mesur (neu pren eira os ydych chi am siarad fel gwyddonydd gwych!). Gwthiwch y pren i’r eira tan ei fod yn cyffwrdd y ddaear a chofnodi pa mor ddwfn yw’r ddaear fesul milimedr. Rhaid i chi fesur o arwyneb gwastad (fel mainc) mewn lle agored lle nad yw’r eira’n lluwchio. Rhaid i chi gofnodi o leiaf tri mesuriad i gyfrifo dyfnder cyfartalog yr eira lleol. Cyfrifwch y cyfartaledd drwy adio’r cofnodion gwahanol a’u rhannu gyda’r nifer o gofnodion. Os ydw i’n cofnodi tri dyfnder o 7cm, 9cm a 6cm, rhaid i fi adio pob rhif (7 + 9 + 6 = 22) cyn rhannu gyda 3 (22 / 3 = 7.33). Dyfnder cyfartalog yr eira felly yw 7.33cm. 

Mae gorsafoedd tywydd fel y Swyddfa Dywydd (MET Office) wedi troi at dechnoleg i ddyfeisio dulliau newydd o fesur dyfnder eira. Edrychwch ar y llun o un o orsafoedd eira’r Swyddfa Dywydd. Mae nhw’n defnyddio synwyryddion laser i fesur dyfnder yr eira ar yr arwyneb gwastad. Gall meteorolegwyr gasglu data o bob cwr o’r wlad wrth wasgu botwm – llawer haws a mwy dibynadwy nag anfon pobl allan i’r oerfel gyda phren eira! Mae pob un o orsafoedd eira’r Swyddfa Dywydd i’w gweld ar y map – oes un yn agos atoch chi? 

Os yw hi wedi bwrw eira, cofiwch fesur y cwymp gyda’r mesurydd glaw neu’r dyfnder gyda phren eira a nodi’r canlyniadau fel ‘Sylwadau’ wrth uwchlwytho eich cofnodion wythnosol. Bydd yn ddiddorol cymharu dyfnder yr eira â chwymp yr eira yn y mesurydd glaw! 

Daliwch ati Gyfeillion y Gwanwyn,

Athro’r Ardd: That is quite a high reading! I’m glad they are enjoying the project.

 

Bacup Thorn Primary School: The weather is really cold this week. Friday has been the coldest. We might get snow this weekend.

Athro’r Ardd: Hi Bacup ThornPrimary, gosh it has been a cold week for you. I hope you are wrapping up warm to take your weather readings!

 

Ysgol Casmael: First frost today

Athro’r Ardd: Do you think you will have snow before Christmas Bulb Buddies?

 

Ysgol Iau Hen Golwyn: There has not been a lot of rain this week and the temperature has been going down each day and then on the last day it went up one as well.

Athro’r Ardd: Hi Bulb Buddies, it sounds as though you got of lightly in terms of rainfall compared to a lot of other schools! Thank you for your weather observations.

 

Darran Park Primary: We have had lots of rain with quite high temperatures except for Friday where the temperature was a lot colder with no rain

Athro’r Ardd:  Thank you for your observations Bulb Buddies.
