Children submit inspirational drawings for competition

Meddai Paula Roberts, Cydlynydd Ysgolion Iach Sir Ddinbych, “Rydym wedi dewis y thema ‘Yr Olygfa Drwy Fy Ffenest’ fel ein her y tro hwn gan ei fod yn rhywbeth rydyn ni i gyd yn gwneud llawer ohono ar hyn o bryd. Gwahoddom blant a phobl ifanc i gyflwyno unrhyw fath o gelfyddyd gan gynnwys paentiadau, cerflunwaith, darluniau, a gludwaith ac i dynnu lluniau o'u gwaith celf. Gofynnon ni iddyn nhw ddweud wrthyn ni beth roedden nhw'n ei hoffi am yr olygfa o'u ffenestr, i roi teitl i'w gwaith celf a dweud wrthyn ni sut roedden nhw'n teimlo am greu celfyddyd.”

 

Dywedodd y beirniad, Siân Fitzgerald, Swyddog Celfyddydau Cymunedol Sir Ddinbych, “Gall celf fod yn ddefnyddiol mewn sawl ffordd-gall ein helpu i archwilio ein creadigrwydd, ysbrydoli a gwneud i ni wenu a'n helpu i ddarganfod pwy ydym ni mewn gwirionedd. Gall ein helpu i gysylltu ag eraill a'n hatal rhag teimlo'n unig pan fyddwn yn sownd gartref. Mae edrych allan ar yr olygfa o’n ffenest yn rhywbeth pwysig i'n dysgu ni-nid yn gymaint am yr hyn rydyn ni'n digwydd ei weld ond sut rydyn ni'n dewis edrych arno. Fe wnes i fwynhau edrych ar eu holl olygfeydd!”

 

Cyflwynodd arlunwyr ifanc Sir Ddinbych, rhwng 4 a 14 oed, waith celf wnaethant reu. Cafodd enillwyr pob categori oedran eu dewis ar sail eu creadigrwydd a'u gwreiddioldeb a bydd bob un yn derbyn Pecyn Celf, Paentio a Lliwio fel gwobr wych a hwyliog.

Denbighshire Healthy Schools and Curriculum Enrichment have once again teamed up to help bring children and young people together in Creative Kids Challenges as they live through COVID-19, this time inviting talented young artists to enter an exciting art competition.

 

Paula Roberts, Denbighshire Healthy Schools Co-ordinator said, “We’ve chose the theme ‘View From My Window’ as our challenge this time because it’s something we’re all doing a lot of at the moment. We invited children and young people to submit any type of art including paintings, sculpture, drawings, and collages and to photograph their artwork. We asked them to tell us what they liked about the view from their window, to give their artwork a title and to tell us how they felt about creating art.”

 

 

Judge, Siân Fitzgerald, Denbighshire Community Arts Development Officer said, “Art can be helpful in several ways - it can help us explore our creativity, inspire and make us smile and help us to discover who we really are. It can help us connect with others and stop us feeling lonely when we’re stuck at home. Looking out at the view from a window has something important to teach us - not so much about what we happen to see but how we choose to look at it. I really enjoyed looking at all their views!”

 

Denbighshire young artists, between the ages of 4 and 14, submitted their artwork creations. The winners of each age category were selected on their creativity and originality and will receive a fun and fantastic complete Drawing, Painting and Colouring Art Kit.

Her Coginio Plant Creadigol Sir Ddinbych

Mae ychydig o Gystadleuaeth Coginio yn Iach

Denbighshire Creative Kids Cooking Challenges

A little Cooking Competition is Healthy

Mae Menter Ysgolion Iach a Chyfoethogi'r Cwricwlwm Sir Ddinbych wedi manteisio ar y cyfle i osod heriau coginio i blant a phobl ifanc er mwyn eu helpu i gael trwy COVID-19.

Yn yr her gyntaf - 'FLAVOUR’ITE BITES', gwahoddwyd plant a phobl ifanc Sir Ddinbych i ddangos eu sgiliau coginio ac i roi argraff dda i Jane Jones, Cogydd Ysgol Ysgol Twm o'r Nant, Dinbych a Chogydd y Flwyddyn, Cymru 2020, trwy ddod o hyd i syniad o beth fyddai eu hoff gymeriad llyfr, teledu neu ffilm yn hoffi ei fwyta. Roedd y byrbrydau i fod yn iach, yn hawdd ac yn hwyl i'w gwneud, yn flasus iawn ac wedi eu cyflwyno'n dda ar blât. Cafodd pob cais ei gyflwyno drwy e-bost, gan restru cynhwysion, dewis a rysáit y byrbryd, enw'r byrbryd, yn ogystal â ffotograff ohono. 

 

Meddai Paula Roberts, Cydlynydd Ysgolion Iach Sir Ddinbych, “gall plant a phobl ifanc goginio a chystadlu mewn ffyrdd sy'n eu hannog i roi cynnig ar fwydydd newydd a chael hwyl wrth greu byrbrydau iach. Mae helpu yn y gegin yn meithrin hyder ac yn annog annibyniaeth, yn ogystal â bod yn gyfraniad gwerthfawr i'r teulu. Nid yn unig rydym eisiau i blant a phobl ifanc ddysgu sgiliau coginio a diogelwch, rydym hefyd eisiau iddyn nhw fwynhau creu ac arbrofi a blasu! Dyna beth mae'r heriau coginio creadigol hyn yn ei feddwl-trio bwydydd newydd, creu bwyd unigryw, a threulio amser yn y gegin.”

 

Wrth sôn am y nifer fawr o geisiadau a ddaeth i law, dywedodd Jane Jones, beirniad y gystadleuaeth, “Cawsom ystod drawiadol o geisiadau yn cynrychioli safon uchel o waith ac ymdrech. Roedd yr holl brydau a grëwyd gan y plant a'r bobl ifanc yn edrych yn wych, gan ddangos defnydd eang o gynhwysion. Efallai y bydd rhaid i mi ddefnyddio rhai o'r rhain yn yr ysgol! Roedd yn anodd iawn dewis enillwyr ond ar ôl llawer o grafu pen, dewisais yr enillwyr canlynol ym mhob categori” -

All entries were submitted by e-mail, listing ingredients, snack recipe, choice and name of snack, accompanied by a photograph. 

 

Paula Roberts, Denbighshire Healthy Schools Co-ordinator said, “Children and young people can cook and compete in ways that encourage them to try new foods and have fun creating healthy snacks. Helping in the kitchen builds confidence and encourages independence, plus it’s a valuable contribution to the family. Not only do we want children and young people to learn cooking and safety skills, we want them to enjoy creating and experimenting and tasting! That’s what these Creative Cooking Challenges are all about - trying new foods, creating unique dishes, and spending time in the kitchen”.

 

Commenting on the large number of entries received, Jane Jones, competition judge said, “We received an impressive range of entries representing an excellent standard of work and effort. All the dishes created by the children and young people looked terrific, showing great use of ingredients. I might have to use try some of these at school! It was very difficult to pick out winners but after a lot of head-scratching, I chose the following winners in each category” -

'Dreigiau Direidus'/'Mischievous Dragons'

Prosiect llythrennedd yn Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn

Drwy gydol mis Mawrth 2020, mae disgyblion Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, Dinbych, am ysgwyd eu cynffonau, anadlu tân a chael hwyl. Bydd disgyblion cynradd yr ysgol yn mwynhau rhai o anturiaethau dreigiau sy’n rhuo, wrth iddyn nhw adael eu dychymyg i hedfan, mewn prosiect iaith a llythrennedd dwyieithog, gyda chefnogaeth Menter Cyfoethogi Cwricwlwm Cyngor Sir Ddinbych.

 

Mae ‘Tell Me a Dragon' gan Jackie Morris, awdur llyfrau plant Sir Benfro a'r darlunydd a ‘Ga’ i Hanes Ddraig’, a chyfieithiad Cymraeg o'r llyfr hudol hwn gan Yr Athro Mererid Hopwood, wedi ysbrydoli prosiect ‘Dreigiau Direidu’ / ‘Mischievous Dragons’. Wedi'i warantu i gyffroi darllenwyr ifanc yn yr ysgol ac i gynnau eu dychymyg, mae'r prosiect hwn yn cynnig posibiliadau diddiwedd i blant greu byd o ddreigiau yn eu dosbarth. 

Yn ystod y prosiect pum wythnos hwn, bydd Magic Light Productions, cwmni cynhyrchu theatrig a leolir ym Mae Colwyn, yn creu byd hudolus yn Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, lle bydd myfyrwyr yn cael eu hysbrydoli i greu eu dreigiau gwych eu hunain o wahanol siapiau, meintiau ac arbenigeddau (tân, rhew, gwynt, ac ati) a dysgu mwy amdanyn nhw drwy gyfres o sesiynau adrodd storïau sy'n seiliedig ar sgiliau, pypedau, hud, cerddoriaeth a drama.

Gwyddom fod dreigiau yn anadlu ac yn chwifio'u cynffonnau ond maent hefyd yn mwynhau parti da ac, fel diweddglo cyffrous i'r prosiect, mae Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn yn cynnal ymweliad arbennig gan yr awdur plant Cymreig, bardd a chyfieithydd y llyfr ‘Tell Me a Dragon’/’Ga’ i Hanes Ddraig’, Yr Athro Mererid Hopwood, Ddydd Llun 30 Mawrth 2020, ynghyd ag arddangosfa a pherfformiad/cyflwyniad yn yr ysgol ar gyfer rhieni, gofalwyr a'r gymuned ehangach. Fel rhan o'r dathliadau, bydd disgyblion hefyd yn mwynhau cinio ysgol gyda thema Draig, helfa wyau Draig a sioe ffilmiau.

'Dreigiau Direidus'/'Mischievous Dragons'

A literacy project at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn

Throughout March 2020, pupils at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, Denbigh are in for some tail-shaking, fire-breathing, wing flapping fun. Primary age pupils at the school will enjoy some dragon-roaring adventures, as they let their imagination soar, in a bilingual language and literacy project, supported by Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment Initiative.

 

‘Tell Me a Dragon’ by Jackie Morris, Pembrokeshire-based children's book author and illustrator and ‘Ga’ i Hanes Ddraig’, the Welsh translation of this magical book by Dr Mererid Hopwood, has inspired ‘Dreigiau Direidus’ / ‘Mischievous Dragons’ project. Guaranteed to excite young readers at the school and ignite their imaginations, this project offers endless possibilities for children to create a world of dragons in their classroom. 

During this five week project, Magic Light Productions, a Colwyn Bay based theatrical production company, will conjure up an enchanted world at Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn, where students will be inspired to create their own wonderful dragons of varied shapes, sizes and specialities (fire, ice, wind, etc) and learn more about them through a series of ‘egg-citing’ skills-based storytelling, puppetry, magic, music and drama workshops.

 

Dragons may breathe fire and wave their spiky tails but they also love a good party and, as a thrilling finale to the project, Ysgol Plas Brondyffryn will be hosting a special visit by celebrated Welsh children’s author, poet and translator of ‘Tell Me a Dragon’/‘Ga’ i Hanes Ddraig’, Dr Mererid Hopwood, on Monday 30 March 2020, together with an exhibition and performance/presentation at the school for parents, carers and the wider community. As part of the celebrations, pupils will also be treated to a dragon-themed school lunch, Dragon Egg Hunt and film show.

Gŵylgyfoeth 2020: 'Dros yr Enfys' Lansiad Swyddogol

“Rydym ar ein ffordd i weld y Dewin,

Dewin Gwlad yr Os!”

Bob blwyddyn, ers 2014, mae Menter Cyfoethogi Cwricwlwm Sir Ddinbych wedi dod â chyffro gŵyl thema flynyddol Gŵylgyfoeth i ysgolion, lle mae cystadlaethau, gweithdai, arddangosfeydd, ‘Dyddiau Trosfeddiannu’ a pherfformiadau theatrig ‘pop-up’ wedi plesio ac ennyn diddordeb plant a phobl ifanc wrth ddysgu ar draws y cwricwlwm yn greadigol, mewn ffyrdd newydd ac arloesol.

 

Nid yw Gŵylgyfoeth 2020 eleni: ‘Dros yr Enfys’ yn eithriad, gyda’i olwg hudolus hyfryd ar lyfr plant clasurol 1900 L. Frank Baum, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ - ‘Dewin Gwlad yr Os’. 

 

Efallai bod y mwyafrif ohonom yn gyfarwydd â'r stori oesol a swynol hon, ond bydd Gŵylgyfoeth 2020: ‘Dros yr Enfys’ yn ein hatgoffa o'r llawenydd o ddilyn Ffordd y Brics Melyn gyda Dorothy a'i chi bach Toto, y Bwgan Brain, y Dyn Tun a'r Dyn Llew Llwfr, wrth iddynt deithio trwy fyd Os wedi'i ail-ddychmygu.

Mae Gŵylgyfoeth 2020: ‘Dros yr Enfys’ yn gwahodd anturiaethwyr ifanc uchelgeisiol o 11 ysgolion ledled Sir Ddinbych i deithio ar hyd eu Ffordd Brics Melyn eu hunain i Os, gan ddefnyddio eu dychymyg, eu harloesedd a’u creadigrwydd, trwy gymryd rhan mewn cyfres o gystadlaethau cyffrous a heriol.

 

Fel gwefr ychwanegol, bydd Magic Light Productions, y tîm creadigol y tu ôl i Gŵylgyfoeth 2020: ‘Dros yr Enfys’, yn mewnbynnu gwaith plant ysgol Sir Ddinbych i'w perfformiadau theatrig ‘pop-up’ o ‘The Magic of Oz’, sy'n teithio ysgolion Sir Ddinbych o 9fed-25ain Mehefin 2020.

 

Yn addas ar gyfer pob oedran a gallu, mae Gŵylgyfoeth 2020: ‘Dros yr Enfys’ yn addo chwisgio pawb sy’n cymryd rhan ar daith corwynt o Sir Ddinbych i Os ac yn ôl adref eto.

 

Felly, rhowch ar eich sliperi arian (doedden nhw ddim yn rai rhuddem fel yn y fersiwn ffilm Technicolour o'r stori ym 1939) a pharatowch ar gyfer dilyn y ffordd brics melyn. Pwy a ŵyr beth fyddwch chi'n ei ddarganfod?

Denbighshire's Enrichfest 2020: 'Over the Rainbow' Official Launch

“We're off to see the Wizard,

the Wonderful Wizard of Oz!”

Each year, since 2014, Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment initiative has brought the excitement of an annual themed Enrichfest festival to schools, whereby competitions, workshops, showcases, Takeovers and ‘pop-up’ theatrical performances have delighted and engaged children and young people in learning across the curriculum creatively, in new and innovative ways.

 

This year’s Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ is no exception, with its magically delightful take on the classic 1900 L. Frank Baum’s children’s book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

 

Most of us may be familiar with this timeless and charming story, but Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ will remind us of the joy of following the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy and her little dog Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, as they travel through the re-imagined world of Oz.

 

Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ invites ambitious young adventurers from 11 schools across Denbighshire to travel along their own Yellow Brick Road to Oz, using their imagination, innovation and creativity, by entering a series of exciting and challenging competitions.

 

As an added thrill, Magic Light Productions, the creative team behind Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’, will input work by Denbighshire schoolchildren themselves into its ‘pop-up’ theatrical performances of ‘The Magic of Oz’, touring Denbighshire schools from 9th - 25th June 2020.

 

Suitable for all ages and abilities, Enrichfest 2020: ‘Over the Rainbow’ promises to whisk all who take part on a whirlwind journey from Denbighshire to Oz and back home again.

 

So put on your silver slippers (they weren't ruby until the 1939 Technicolor movie version of the story) and get ready to follow the yellow brick road. Who knows what you’ll discover?

'Rhannwch Dudalen'

Prosiect Darllen newn Ysgolion

"Nid oes y fath beth â phlentyn sy'n casáu darllen; dim ond plant sydd heb gael y llyfr cywir."

Gyda phenodiad Cressida Cowell fel Awdures Llawryfog i Blant, Cwmni Waterstones (Gorffennaf 2019) ac ar achlysur dadorchuddio ei Siarter: “Rhestr Fawr o bethau i'w gwneud", sy'n pwysleisio pwysicrwydd hawl bob plentyn i "fod yn berchen ar eu llyfr eu hunain", i dderbyn “darlleniadau llafar ar eu cyfer” ac i “weld eu hunain yn cael eu hadlewyrchu mewn llyfr", mae Menter Cyfoethogi Cwricwlwm Sir Ddinbych wedi ddilyn esiampl Siarter Ms Cowell ac wedi gwneud rhai newidiadau i'w Cynllun Mentora Darllen gwirfoddol ei hun.

Reading in Schools Project

“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.”

Frank Serafini

With the appointment of Cressida Cowell as Waterstones’ Children’s Laureate (July 2019) and the unveiling of her Laureate Charter; a “giant to-do list”, asserting every child’s right to “own their own book”, to “be read aloud to” and to “see themselves reflected in a book”, Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment Initiative has taken a leaf out of Ms Cowell’s Charter and made a few amendments to its own volunteer reading mentoring scheme.

Drwy ddarparu cymorth unigol wythnosol i blant ysgolion cynradd ac uwchradd, mae Prosiect Darllen mewn Ysgolion Sir Ddinbych, ‘Rhannwch Dudalen’, yn anelu at hyrwyddo darllen drwy eu hannog i ddarganfod hud llyfrau a dod yn ddarllenwyr mwy hyderus gyda gwirfoddolwr darllen drwy gydol y flwyddyn ysgol. Mae hefyd yn anelu at helpu i gynyddu lefelau darllen a chyrhaeddiad llythrennedd, meithrin cariad at ddarllen ac agwedd gadarnhaol i ddysgu.

 

Mae'r Prosiect Darllen ‘Rhannwch Dudalen’ mewn Ysgolion yn rhoi cyfle i blant ddatblygu eu sgiliau iaith a chyfathrebu, yn ogystal â chynyddu eu hunan-hyder, eu hunan-barch a'u sgiliau cymdeithasol.

 

Mae pump o ysgolion Sir Ddinbych yn cymryd rhan yn y prosiect eleni - Ysgol Uwchradd Dinbych, Ysgol Pendref, Ysgol Bodfari, Ysgol Llanbedr ac Ysgol Borthyn.

 

Mae'n rhoi boddhad:

Teimlo boddhad o wybod eich bod chi’n gwneud gwahaniaeth a bod y plant yn edrych ymlaen at eich ymweliadau.   

 

“Mae gweld y plant yn dod yn fwy brwdfrydig a hyderus wrth i'r wythnosau fynd heibio; maent yn mynd yn llai swil ac yn gofyn cwestiynau, i gymharu â'r wythnos gyntaf, roeddent yn dawel iawn.”

 

A dyma beth sydd gan y plant i'w ddweud:

Mae'n garedig iawn i chi ddod i'n hysgol a gwrando arna i yn darllen. Rwy'n edrych ymlaen yn fawr at eich gweld ac mae'n fy helpu i ddarllen.

By providing weekly individual support to primary and secondary school children, Denbighshire’s Reading in Schools Project, ‘Share a Page’, aims to promote reading by encouraging them to discover the magic of books and become more confident readers with a reading volunteer throughout the school year. It also aims to help increase reading levels and literacy attainment, foster a love of reading and a positive attitude to learning.

 

‘Share a Page’ Reading in Schools Project provides children with an opportunity to develop their language and communication skills, as well as increase their self-confidence, self-esteem and social skills.

 

Five Denbighshire schools are taking part in this year’s project - Denbigh High School, Ysgol Pendref, Ysgol Bodfari, Ysgol Llanbedr and Ysgol Borthyn.

 

It’s rewarding:

Knowing you’re making a difference and that the children look forward to your visits is really rewarding.

 

“Seeing the children become more enthusiastic and confident as the weeks go by; they become less shy and ask questions, whereas compared to the first week, they were really quiet.”

And here’s what the children have to say:
