Nadolig Llawen oddi wrth Yr Athro Ardd a Bwlb Bychan!
Diolch i'r holl ysgolion sydd wedi cofnodi ac anfon eu data dros y misoedd diwethaf. Rwy'n edrych ymlaen at glywed am pan fydd y blodau yn dechrau tyfu yn y Gwanwyn!
Mae rhai ohonoch wedi adrodd am genllysg neu hyd yn oed eira! Ewch i weld eich sylwadau isod. Wythnos ddiwethaf yng Nghaerdydd, roedd gennym gryn dipyn o genllysg. Hyn wedi gwneud i mi ryfeddu, sut yn union mae cerrig cenllysg ffurfio? Roedd yr atebion gyda Derek (The Weatherman). Cliciwch yma i weld ei flog a llun o garreg genllysg mawr a oedd wedi gwmpo ger Caerdydd yn 1968. http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/walesnature/2011/12/how_hailstones_are_formed.html
Mwynhewch eich gwyliau!

christmas decorations part two.
In my last post I mentioned that I would be running a drop in arts and crafts session on the 17th december in Oriel 1, St Fagans: National History Museum. We will be taking inspiration from 1950s decorations, and to get some good ideas I went around the site with my camera the other day and took these photos.
Do you have anything similar at home? don't forget to let me know your memories of Christmas decorations in your house when you were growing up too!
I will be running an arts and crafts session on Saturday 17th December and we'll be making Christmas decorations! whoop!
I've been busy creating some samples of what we will be making, so if you like what you see come and make them with me! It's a drop in session and is suitable for both children and adults, we'll be making tissue paper pom poms, crepe paper chains and gingerbread men out of felt - i'll also try and remember to bring some christmassy playdough for the littlest ones and some colouring sheets too.
I've taken inspiration from decorations from the 1950s and have a few decorations from that date to show you! (will take pictures and blog about them too). We're also keen to collect some information from you - what decorations did you have as a child? let me know here or fill in one of my forms on the 17th.
The gingerbread man in the photo is from our collection and dates from around 1912. Inspired by this, I thought it would be fun to make some gingerbread men felt tree decorations too (and, yes, I realise I'm not sticking to my theme!).
Staff are busy decorating the historic buildings in St Fagans: National History Museum as we speak, so on the 17th you'll be able to get some first hand 50s inspiration for the 1950s decorations by visiting the Prefab and the 1955 Rhyd-y-car house.
go here for more information or email me if you have any questions regarding the session.
