The drowning of Capel Celyn

Hanes Boddi Capel Celyn Hanes Boddi Capel Celyn

Mr Walter Williams and his grand-daughter Buddug Roberts vistied the school recently to talk to the children about the events of Capel Celyn in the 1960’s and its effect on Wales and the Welsh people. The children all listened attentively and asked many questions. Here is a very special cup from Capel Celyn kept as a family heirloom by Mr Williams.

Mr Dafydd Iwan also came to school to talk about his memories of the time. The children particularly enjoyed singing with him and the favourite was of course ‘Yma o hyd.’ I’m sure staff and children will remember this very unique experience.

Gweithgareddau Dosbarth Derbyn 2015 (Welsh Only)

Rydym wedi bod yn trafod Dewi Sant

Dyma ni yn cyfrif y llysiau ar gyfer gwneud cawl dydd Gwyl Dewi. Dyma ni yn adio y llysiau.

Dyma ni yn ysgrifennu neges bwysig Dewi Sant.

Dyma ni yn ysgrifennu cyfarwyddiadau gwneud cawl gan ddefnyddio geirfa gorchmynol.


Dyma ni yn lliwio’r ddraig goch. Dyma ni yn ateb cwestiynau am fywyd Dewi Sant.

Dyma ni yn ysgrifennu ffeithiau am fywyd Santes Dwynwen.


Gweithgareddau Blwyddyn 1 2015 (Welsh Only)

Ar ddechrau’r flwyddyn croesawyd Dilwyn y ddraig i’r dosbarth. Mae’r plentyn sydd yn cael ei ddewis i wisgo’r bathodyn cymraeg yn cael cwmni’r ddraig am y diwrnod. Mae Dilwyn yn gwrando’n astud  ar y disgyblion sydd yn ymdrechu’n galed i siarad Cymraeg ac yn defnyddio  idiom wythnosol y dosbarth yn ogystal â gwefreiriau wrth sgwrsio.

Fel rhan o’n thema ‘Cestyll’ bu’r disgyblion yn dysgu am hanes Cymru ac yn am fywyd enwogion fel Llywelyn Ein Llyw Olaf. Cafodd y disgyblion gyfleoedd i chwarae rôl a chymeryd rhan mewn gweithgareddau sedd boeth.

Bu disgyblion y dosbarth yn coginio cacenni cri i ddathlu dydd Gwyl Dewi. Cawsant fwynhad wrth drefnu’r cyfarwyddiadau a dysgu am ferfau gorchmynnol wrth baratoi cacenni blasus.

Yn ystod y sesiynau canu bu’r disgyblion yn dysgu’r gân ‘Dwi’n Gymro, Dwi’n Gymraes’. Adnodd lleisiol sydd ar gael ar Hwb yw ‘Rimbojam’.

Yn dilyn y sesiynau aethpwyd ati i astudio geiriau’r gân mewn mwy o fanylder gan edrych yn benodol ar y geiriau oedd yn gysylltiedig â Chymru.



Ardal Chwarae Rôl.

Wrth astudio’r testun ‘Eisteddfod Gwlad y Rwla’ gan Angharad Thomas roedd cyfle i drafod y traddodiad eisteddfodol yng Nghymru. Penderfynodd y disbyglion yr hoffent newid yr ardal chwarae rôl yn lwyfan eisteddfod.

Cynhaliwyd ffug eisteddfod yn ddyddiol. Roedd hyn yn cynnig cyfleoedd i ddisgyblion ymarfer y darnau llefaru/ canu yr oedd angen eu dysgu ar gyfer eisteddfod yr Urdd. Roedd y beirniaid yn anghytuno ar brydiau ond roedd y disgyblioyn wrth eu bodd yn derbyn tystysgrifau a rhubanau am eu hymdrechion.


Gweithgareddau Blwyddyn 2 - Uned o waith yn seiliedig ar Dewi Sant

stori ar ffurf comic
Bu’r disgyblion yn darllen ac yn
astudio’r gerdd ’Hunaniaeth’ ac
trafod beth sydd yn
unigryw i ni fel Cymry.
Roedd cyfle hefyd i gofnodi hanes
Dewi Sant ar ffurf stribed cartŵn.
Bu’r disgyblion yn darllen eu gwaith
i weddill y dosbarth.
llyfr mathemateg
Tasg yn yr ardal fathemateg.
(Y Pôs Cymreig)

Roedd hi’n ofynnol i’r disgyblion fynd ati i weithio mewn parau gan geisio datrys y pôs Cymreig. Y nod oedd ceisio darganfod beth oedd gwerth pob llun ym mhob colofn.


' Make me Welsh'
Gwych oedd gweld rhaglen deledu ' Make me Welsh' a gafodd ei ddarlledu nos Fercher 03/06/15 yn olrhain hanes Maddie Hayward a ddaeth o Awstralia i Lanber i fyw. Roedd y rhaglen yn dilyn sut bu i Maddie fynd ati i ddysgu'r iaith Gymraeg ac ymgartrefu o fewn ein cymuned. Yn sicr mae'r rhaglen yn ysbrydoliaeth i unrhyw berson sydd yn ymgartrefu yma yng Nghymru ac yn mynd ati i ddysgu'r iath. Braf oedd gweld gymaint o rieni oedd mor frwdfrydig tuag at yr iaith a gweld pwysigrwydd i barchu ein hiaith a'n treftadaeth. Llongyfarchiadau mawr. Cliciwch yma i weld y rhaglen


Llongyfarchiadau i griw can actol Ysgol Dolbadarn a ddaeth yn ail yn yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol yng Nghaerffili. Y thema oedd 'Caer'. Prif neges y gan actol oedd pwysigrwdd i ni fel cenedl warchod ein hiaith ac i barchu a gwerthfawrogi ein diwylliant a'n treftadaeth.
