Dewch i Goginio 2020 Sir Ddinbych - Cystadleuaeth Coginio i ysgolion ar agor

Caiff pobl ifanc rhwng 7 ac 14 oed gyfle i ddisglerio yn y gegin gyda chystadleuaeth ar ffurf MasterChef, 'Dewch i Goginio'

Dros y 4 blynedd diwethaf, mae cystadleuaeth goginio ysgolion blynyddol Sir Ddinbych wedi denu a meithrin talent ifanc. Gyda chymorth noddwyr a chefnogwyr o'r un farn, mae'r gystadleuaeth wedi parhau i dyfu o nerth i nerth.

Denbighshire Come & Cook 2020 -

Cooking contest for schools now open

Young people aged 7 to 14 years have the chance to shine in the kitchen with MasterChef-style competition, 'Come & Cook'

Over the past 4 years, Denbighshire’s annual schools cooking competition has attracted and nurtured young talent. With the help of like-minded sponsors and supporters, the competition has continued to grow from strength to strength.

Eleni, yn unol â ‘Chanllaw Bwyta'n Iach’ i hyrwyddo bwyta'n iach, mae Gwasanaethau Addysg a Phlant Sir Ddinbych yn ail-frandio'r gystadleuaeth o dan y teitl ‘Dewch i Goginio’. Ei nod yw annog cogyddion ifanc i ddarganfod eu bwyd lleol ac i ddatblygu sgiliau coginio'r genhedlaeth nesaf.

 

Meddai Paula Roberts, Cydlynydd Ysgolion Iach Cyngor Sir Ddinbych: “Rydyn ni'n cefnogi'r gystadleuaeth goginio yma gan ei bod yn ffordd wych i bobl ifanc ddangos eu sgiliau a'u brwdfrydedd am goginio trwy ddefnyddio cynhwysion lleol a iach.”

 

Dywedodd Sarah Dixon, Cydlynydd Menter Cyfoethogi’r Cwricwlwm Sir Ddinbych: “Rydyn ni mor gyffrous i gael bwrw ymlaen ar gyfer cystadleuaeth 2020 Dewch i Goginio a gwahoddwn ysgolion a phobl ifanc i ddechrau meddwl am y ryseitiau a'u profi ar unwaith.”

Mae Dewch i Goginio 2020 Sir Ddinbych yn agored i unrhyw berson ifanc sy'n mynychu ysgol awdurdod lleol o fewn Sir Ddinbych, rhwng 7 a 14 oed. Y briff yw gweithio i greu bwydlen sy'n defnyddio cymaint o gynhwysion a gynhyrchir yn lleol â phosibl. Bydd y gystadleuaeth yn herio disgyblion i ddysgu am o ble mae eu bwyd yn dod ac archwilio cynnyrch tymhorol a chynaladwy lleol. Gwahoddir cogyddion ifanc i gystadlu Rownd 1 y gystadleuaeth yn eu hysgolion, gyda'r dyddiad cau Ddydd Gwener 12 Mehefin 2020. Wedi hynny, bydd enillwyr ysgolion yn cael eu gwahodd i goginio prydau ar gyfer Panel o arbenigwyr yn y Rownd derfynol gyffrous ar ffurf MasterChef a gynhelir yn Ysgol Uwchradd Dinbych, ddiwedd Mehefin 2020.

This year, in line with the ‘Eatwell Guide’ to promote healthy eating, Denbighshire Education and Children’s Services is rebranding the competition under the title of ‘Come & Cook’. Its aim is to encourage young cooks to discover their local food and to develop the next generation's cooking skills.

 

Paula Roberts, Denbighshire Healthy Schools Co-ordinator said: “We’re supporting this cooking competition because it’s such an amazing way for young people to demonstrate their skills and their passion about cooking by using ingredients that are local and healthy.”

 

Denbighshire Curriculum Enrichment Initiative Co-ordinator, Sarah Dixon said: “We’re so excited to get the ball rolling for the 2020 Come & Cook contest and would invite schools and young people to start thinking about and road-testing the recipes immediately.”

 

Denbighshire Come & Cook 2020 is open to any young person attending a Denbighshire Local Authority School, aged between 7 and 14. The brief is to work to create a menu using as many locally produced ingredients as possible. The competition will challenge pupils to learn about where their food comes from and explore the key issues of seasonality and sustainability. Young cooks are invited to enter Round 1 of the competition in their school, with a closing date of Friday 12 June 2020. Thereafter, school winners will be invited to cook dishes for a VIP panel at an exciting live MasterChef-style final, hosted by Denbigh High School, at the end of June 2020.

'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."

 

Frank Serafini

 

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.

'Share a Page'

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:
