CYRSIAU CARLAM CYMRU

The Covid pandemic has resulted in students across Wales missing out on certain aspects and the opportunity to improve skills in various GCSE, AS and A level subjects. In order to support pupils across Wales, e-sgol will be running a number of sessions to support pupils with aspects of their work. These after school sessions will be made through the medium of Welsh and English for four weeks starting from Monday 1st, March. 

These webinar sessions will be broadcasted through a live event on Microsoft Teams and facilitated by teachers from across Wales who have an expertise in the subject they’ll be delivered. The sessions delivered will be recorded and can be used at a later date. 

It would be gratefully appreciated if you could share the following information to your heads of departments, teachers and pupils. Pupils will be responsible to access the site in order to click on the relevant links to join the sessions. 

For more information including when the sessions will be held, visit the following website or follow the instructions on the attached poster – https://sites.google.com/hwbcymru.net/cyrsiaucarlamcymru 

Mae pandemig Covid wedi arwain at fyfyrwyr ledled Cymru yn colli allan ar rai agweddau a’r cyfle i wella eu sgiliau mewn amryw o bynciau TGAU, UG a Safon Uwch. Er mwyn sicrhau bod y myfyrwyr hyn yn cael cefnogaeth mewn gwahanol agweddau o’u gwaith, bydd e-sgol yn cynnal cyfres o sesiynau carlam ar ôl ysgol am bedair wythnos, trwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg a’r Saesneg, gan ddechrau ar ddydd Llun 1af o Fawrth. Bydd y sesiynau yn digwydd ar ôl ysgol.   

 Bydd y sesiynau / gweminarau hyn yn cael eu darlledu trwy ddigwyddiad byw ar Microsoft Teams ac yn cael eu hwyluso gan athrawon o bob rhan o Gymru sydd ag arbenigedd yn y pwnc y byddan nhw’n ei gyflwyno. Bydd y sesiynau a gyflwynir yn cael eu recordio a gellir eu defnyddio yn ddiweddarach. 

Byddem yn ddiolchgar pe gallech rannu’r wybodaeth ganlynol gyda’ch penaethiaid adrannau, athrawon a disgyblion. Bydd y disgyblion yn gyfrifol am gael mynediad i’r wefan er mwyn clicio ar y dolenni perthnasol i ymuno â’r sesiynau. 

Am ragor o wybodaeth gan gynnwys pryd y cynhelir y sesiynau, ewch i’r wefan ganlynol neu dilynwch y cyfarwyddiadau ar y poster atodol –

Accessing School From Home – Support for Parents & Carers

Mynediad i’r Ysgol Gartref – Cefnogaeth i Rieni & Gofalwyr

KS3 Learning from Home / CA3 Gweithio o Adre

All work is set via Google Classroom for which every student must use their SCHOOL email address (a private email address will not work). A range of general tasks will be provided. Some tasks may well require access to other websites and learning platforms – where this is the case links will be provided.
New work will be set on an ongoing basis so please ask students to revisit often and check inside the classroom.
If students have completed all work set and require more work will be provided as time goes on. It is important to check that work has been completed fully and thoroughly to the very best of their ability. Work should not simply be rushed through so that they can say it has been done. This may mean going through work to add more details, reading through work to check for accuracy or re-drafting a first attempt to improve the quality of a piece of work. 
In addition to the specific work set for each subject, all students have access to the School Website many departments websites now provide a range of useful learning tasks to engage in.
Other useful educational activities include:
  • Reading – ideally set works or texts but reading novels or other suitable materials such as age appropriate subject journals or research materials is always a good use of time.
  • Research into different careers
  • Re-reading notes on topics covered so far to make sure learning is secure.
  • Completing any incomplete work due to previous absence.
  • Extended use of on-line learning platforms such as:
  • MathsWatch – All students already have logins.
  • SENECA Learning – There are a range of courses available for improving literacy here for Year 7 and 8 students.
  • Joe Wicks – Body Coach – Some active exercise is also to be encouraged.
Mae’r holl waith wedi’i osod trwy Google Classroom. Mae’n rhaid i bob myfyriwr ddefnyddio ei gyfeiriad e-bost YSGOL (ni fydd cyfeiriad e-bost preifat yn gweithio). Darperir ystod o dasgau cyffredinol. Efallai y bydd angen mynediad i wefannau a llwyfannau dysgu eraill ar gyfer rhai tasgau – lle mae hyn yn wir darperir dolenni.
Bydd gwaith newydd yn cael ei osod yn barhaus felly gofynnwch i’r myfyrwyr ailedrych yn aml a gwirio yr ystafell ddosbarth.
Os yw myfyrwyr wedi cwblhau’r holl waith a osodir ac angen mwy, darperir mwy o waith wrth i amser fynd yn ei flaen. Mae’n bwysig gwirio bod gwaith wedi’i gwblhau’n llawn ac yn drylwyr hyd eithaf eu gallu. Ni ddylid rhuthro drwy’r gwaith fel y gallant ddweud ei fod wedi’i wneud. Gall hyn olygu mynd trwy’r gwaith i ychwanegu mwy o fanylion, darllen trwy gwaith i wirio am gywirdeb neu ail-ddrafftio ymgais gyntaf i wella ansawdd darn o waith. 
Yn ychwanegol at y gwaith penodol ar gyfer pob pwnc, mae gan bob myfyriwr fynediad i Wefan yr Ysgol ac mae llawer o wefannau adrannau bellach yn darparu ystod o dasgau dysgu defnyddiol i ymgymryd â nhw.
Mae gweithgareddau addysgol defnyddiol eraill yn cynnwys:
  • Darllen – testunau gosod, darllen nofelau neu mae deunyddiau addas eraill fel cylchgronnau pwnc benodol sy’n briodol i’w hoedran neu ddeunyddiau ymchwil mae rhain bob amser yn ddefnyddio.
  • Ailddarllen nodiadau ar bynciau a drafodwyd hyd yma i sicrhau bod dealltwriaeth yn y dysgu. Hole had eich plenty nam gynnwys y gwaith. Gofynwch iddynt greu cwis ar y gwaith.
  • Cwblhau unrhyw waith anghyflawn oherwydd absenoldeb blaenorol. Fe fydd rhain yn yn dangos ar ddosbarth Google eich plentyn.
  • Defnydd estynedig o lwyfannau dysgu ar-lein fel:
  • MathsWatch – Mae gan bob disgybl gyfrinair. Os oes problem cysylltwch a’r linell gymorth/ helpdesk.
  • Dysgu SENECA – Mae yna ystod o gyrsiau ar gael ar gyfer gwella llythrennedd yma ar gyfer disgyblion Blwyddyn 7 ac 8.
  • Mae modd ymchwilio i I lwybrau ar gyfer y dyfodol – gyrfau posibl
  • Joe Wicks – Body Coach – Mae ymarfer corff dyddiol hefyd i’w annog.

    What Our Pupils Say...

    I enjoyed every aspect of Year 7 and 8, and I was very fortunate to have been able to take part in a number of extra-curricular activities. I am looking forward to starting Year 10.

    Maddie – Yr 9

    In year 9 I took part in the Mock Trials, which was a mock courtroom. I am a member of the Carmarthenshire’s youth council which I got involved in via the school and I spoke in the house of commons last November.
