Mae blodau Athro’r Ardd wedi agor.
Mae blodau Athro’r Ardd wedi agor.
Cennin Pedr cyntaf Clwb Garddio Stanford.

Dwi wedi cyffroi yn lân! Mae fy mlodau i wedi agor o’r diwedd, ac mae nhw mor brydferth alla i ddim peidio gwenu wrth edrych arnyn nhw. Blodeuodd y crocws ar 16 Mawrth ac roedd e’n 90mm o daldra. Blodeuodd y cennin Pedr y diwrnod wedyn ac roedd e’n 240mm o daldra. Dyma ffotograff o’r ddau.

Diolch yn fawr i Glwb Garddio Stanford o Ysgol Gynradd Stanford in the Vale CE yn Lloegr am eu ffotograff o’u cennin Pedr cyntaf! Oes unrhyw un arall am anfon ffotograffau o’u planhigion ata i, i fi gael eu rhoi nhw ar y wefan hefyd?

Pa ysgolion sydd wedi gweld eu blodau cyntaf yn agor?

Mae Abronhill Primary School, Culross Primary School, ac Glencairn Primary School yn yr Alban, ac Christchurch CP School, Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, Gladestry C.I.W. School, Rogiet Primary School, Ysgol Clocaenog, Ysgol Gynradd Cross Hands, Ysgol Deganwy ac Ysgol Santes Tudfulyng Nghymru i gyd wedi gweld eu blodau cyntaf. Yn Lloegr, mae ysgolion Arkholme CE Primary School, Burscough Bridge Methodist School, Coppull Parish Primary School, Hillside Specialist School, John Cross CE Primary School, Pinfold Primary School, Scotforth St. Paul's CE Primary School, SS Philip and James CE Primary School, St Laurence CE Primary School ac Woodplumpton St. Anne's Primary School i gyd wedi anfon eu cofnodion blodau cyntaf. Llongyfarchiadau i chi gyd!

Un wythnos ar ôl…

Dim ond un wythnos sydd ar ôl tan ddyddiad cau project Bylbiau’r Gwanwyn. Cofiwch anfon eich cofnodion ata i erbyn 28 Mawrth.

Beth i wneud os nad yw’r blodau wedi agor erbyn y dyddiad cau?

Daliwch ati i anfon eich data blodau! Os nag yw eich blodau wedi agor, mae croeso i chi barhau â’r ymchwiliad. Pan fydd y planhigion yn blodeuo byddwch chi’n dal i allu cofnodi y dyddiad a’r uchder ar ein gwefan.

Y rheswm am y dyddiad cau yw fy mod i’n ysgrifennu adroddiad arbennig bob blwyddyn yn crynhoi yr holl ddata fyddwch chi’n ei anfon. Rhaid i fi ysgrifennu’r adroddiad ym mis Ebrill. Bydd cofnodion fydd yn cyrraedd cyn y dyddiad cau yn cael eu cynnwys yn yr adroddiad eleni. Bydd cofnodion fydd yn cyrraedd ar ôl y dyddiad cau yn cael eu hychwanegu at y bas data ac yn cael eu cynnwys yn adroddiad y flwyddyn nesaf.

Mae eich cofnodion i gyd yn bwysig iawn. Rwy’n addo y bydd eich data i gyd yn cael ei gynnwys yn y project ac yn helpu i wneud yr ymchwiliad yn fwy cywir yn y dyfodol.

Ydych chi wedi gweld unrhyw arwyddion o’r gwanwyn wrth chwarae? Fe welais i gacynen flewog dros y penwythnos, buwch goch gota ac ŵyn bach! Dyma fi’n edrych mewn llyn ond welais i ddim grifft llyffaint. Ydych chi wedi gweld grifft llyffaint neu unrhyw arwyddion eraill o’r gwanwyn?

Hoffech chi fod yn Dditectif Natur? Mae Coed Cadw wedi paratoi gweithgareddau gwych y gwanwyn ar eich cyfer chi. Dysgwch sut i adnabod arwyddion cyntaf y gwanwyn yma ac am ragor o syniadau gwych y gwanwyn cliciwch yma.

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Ysgol Bro Eirwg: Roedd y mesurudd glaw yn llawn ar ddydd Llun gan ei fod wedi casglu'r holl law dros hanner tymor. Rydym ni yn gyffrous iawn bod rhai o'r bylbiau wedi dechrau agor. Rydym wedi sylwi bo'r bylbiau sy'n agor yn hwyrach llawer yn llai, oes rheswm am hyn? Athro’r Ardd: Rydw i’n falch iawn bod eich blodau chi yn agor Ysgol Bro Eirwg! Da iawn chi am arsylwi mor ofalus ar y planhigion a gofyn cwestiwn gwyddonol gwych. Yr ateb yw… dwi ddim yn siŵr!! Efallai bod rhai o’r bylbiau yn llai na’r lleill wrth gael eu plannu. Gallai hyn olygu eu bod nhw’n cymryd mwy o amser i flodeuo a’u bod nhw’n llai o faint. Oes gennych chi unrhyw syniadau i’w esbonio? Sut fyddech chi’n profi eich syniadau wrth dyfu rhagor o blanhigion y flwyddyn nesaf?

Raglan VC Primary: Our flowers are blooming now! The shoots are 85 cm tall! Prof P: Do you mean 85mm tall Raglan? An 85cm tall flower would be HUGE!

Glencairn Primary School: It was very foggy on Thursday night and Friday morning! Prof P: Great weather reporting. I love fog, it’s quite spooky isn’t it?

Hillside Specialist School: Our first flower opened. By K. Prof P: Well done K and everyone else at Hillside School.

Greyfriars RC Primary School: It was fun me and R. really enjoyed it. Prof P: Hooray!

SS Philip and James CE Primary: A lot of our crocus flowers had come out over the holidays! Prof P: Fantastic! A lot of people’s flowers opened during the holidays.

Pinfold Primary School: Mystery bulbs started opening on Monday. We think they're daffodils. Other bulbs are growing very well. Prof P: Great news Pinfold.

Ysgol Terrig: our bulbs are growing great they are now 7cm tall !!!!! Prof P: Fantastic news Ysgol Terrig!

Chatelherault Primary School: During the week it has been sunny and because of this our plants has started to blossom although the flowers are still closed. We have had a lot of spiders in our pots. Prof P: Oooh, how cool! I love spiders! Their webs are so beautiful and the way they make them is so clever.

Culross Primary School: We have been very busy in P5-7 recently with trips to Scottish Parliament and also the Foodbank with a collection we organised. Sorry for the lack of records for Tuesday and Thursday! Matt is the name of my daffodil and he was the first one to flower here at Culross PS. It has been quite warm here at Culross and we haven't had any snow, so the daffodils are now beginning to grow. O's crocus is called Coco and measures 50mm. Her’s is the first crocus to flower here at Culross. Well done to O.! Prof P: Wow you sound like you have had some really interesting school trips Culross Primary. Well done for collecting for the Foodbank. I love the names you have given to your plants!

Darran Park Primary: The first crocuses flowered on the 7th of march. Their colour is purple\violet. The bees have already started collecting the pollen and they are 6 cm tall. Some of the other crocus bulbs have only just started to sprout through the soil. Prof P: Great observations Darran Park, I like your description of the crocuses as purple/violet.

Arkholme CE Primary School: Sun shining at last it is doing the flowers a world of good they have come out to see it!!! Prof P: It is doing me the world of good too Arkholme!

Diolch yn fawr

National Science and Engineering Week

Postiwyd gan Katie Mortimer-Jones ar 21 Mawrth 2014

Yesterday, Natural Sciences Staff took part in the 'Meet the Pollinators' Event run by First Campus, a partnership between higher education institutions, further education colleges and schools in South East Wales. The event was part of National Science and Engineering Week and was attended by approximately 100 Year 9 pupils from six schools. The pupils had the opportunity to speak to the curators and find out about 'a day in the life of museum scientists'. 

Blodau i bawb!

Athro'r Ardd yn cofnodi'r tywydd gyda Phensel Gwyddonydd Gwych!

Waw gyfeillion y gwanwyn! Mae cymaint ohonoch chi wedi gweld eich planhigion yn blodeuo ers y blog diwethaf! Mae’n rhaid bod meysydd chwarae a gerddi yr ysgolion yn werth eu gweld. Diolch am eich cofnodion blodau i gyd.

Pa ysgolion sydd wedi gweld eu blodau cyntaf?

Mae Ysgol Gynradd St Bernadette yn yr Alban ac Ysgol Gynradd WR Abergwili, Ysgol Gynradd Parc Darran, Ysgol Gynradd CIW Henllys, Ysgol Gynradd WR Llanishen Fach, Ysgol Bro Tawe ac Ysgol Gynradd Dolgellau yng Nghymru i gyd wedi gweld eu blodau cyntaf. Yn Lloegr, mae ysgolion Balshaw Lane Community Primary School, Dallas Road Community School, Golden Hill School, Holy Trinity CE Primary School, Manor Road Primary School, Red Marsh School, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, St Michaels CE (Aided) Primary School, St Nicholas Primary School and The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School i gyd wedi anfon eu cofnodion blodau cyntaf. Llongyfarchiadau i chi gyd!

Dim ond 3 wythnos i anfon eich cofnodion

Fyddwch chi’n ennill tystysgrif Gwyddonydd Gwych eleni? Y dyddiad cau i anfon eich cofnodion blodau yw 28 Mawrth. Os byddwch chi’n anfon eich cofnodion tywydd a blodau ata i (os ydyn nhw wedi agor) byddwch chi’n dod yn Wyddonydd Gwych! Bydd pob Gwyddonydd Gwych yn derbyn Tystysgrif a Phensel. Bydd cyfle i chi hefyd ennill Taith Natur neu hadau i dyfu blodau’r haul eich hun!

Ydych chi’n artist? Beth am gymryd rhan yn y Gystadleuaeth Darlunio Cennin Pedr? 20 Mawrth yw’r dyddiad cau ar gyfer hon hefyd. Rydw i’n chwilio am ddarluniau botanegol – sef darluniau o blanhigion mewn arddull wyddonol. Rwy’n siŵr y gallwch chi dynnu lluniau gwych, ond cofiwch labelu rhannau’r Cennin Pedr yn glir hefyd. Gallwch chi weld yr enillwyr, a’r esiamplau gorau o’r llynedd drwy ddilyn y ddolen hon. Bydd yr enillwyr yn derbyn pecyn gwylio adar gyda binocwlars bach i’r dosbarth, a’r goreuon eraill yn derbyn bag o hadau blodau i’r ardd!

Dyw fy mhlanhigion i mewn potiau yn dal heb flodeuo, ond mae’r crocysau draw yng ngardd Sain Ffagan Amgueddfa Werin Cymru yn werth eu gweld. Mae’r gwenyn yn eu mwynhau nhw hefyd y ôl y ffotograff yma! Allwch chi weld bod paill melyn dros gorff y gacynen? Pan fydd e’n hedfan at flodyn arall bydd e’n trosglwyddo’r paill o un blodyn i’r llall – dyma sut mae blodau yn cael eu ffrwythloni!

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Raglan VC Primary: Still no sign of the flowers this week! We are having some good weather. Prof P: Don’t worry Raglan School, mine haven’t flowered yet either. Hopefully the good weather will help our plants to flower.

Cutteslowe Primary School: Monday 17th - school closed, no heating or hot water. Prof P: Brrrr that sounds very chilly.

Manor Road Primary School (Lancashire): One of are crocus bulbs are starting to flower. Prof P: Fantastic news Manor Road, Congratulations!

Chatelherault Primary School: Wk 10: Most of our plants have started to too grow. It has raining a lot and some snow. Prof P: We didn’t have any snow at all in Cardiff this year, but we did have lots of rain.

The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School: It has been so exciting this week as the buds all suddenly started to appear and on Friday some crocus flowers opened! The daffodils have suddenly grown and we know it won't be long before they too flower. They just love the sunshine! Prof P: Hooray! It’s such a lovely feeling to see your flowers open isn’t it?

Greyfriars RC Primary School: S - ten of our crocuses have budded. Prof P: Great news S. at Greyfriars, I’m sure the other crocuses won’t be far behind.

Dallas Road Community Primary School: Super Fun!!! Prof P: I’m so glad you think so Dallas Road! Science IS Super Fun!

Diolch yn fawr

Cofnodion blodau cyntaf yr Alban!

Postiwyd gan Catalena Angele ar 7 Mawrth 2014

Llongyfarchiadau i Ysgol Gynradd Ladywell am fod yr ysgol gyntaf o’r Alban i anfon eu cofnodion blodau! Anfonodd Ysgol Gynradd Lakeside, Caerdydd eu cofnodion blodau cyntaf hefyd – agorodd eu crocws cyntaf a’u cennin Pedr cyntaf yn yr un wythnos! Da iawn chi gyfeillion y gwanwyn.

Tair wythnos… Dyddiad cau anfon eich cofnodion tywydd a blodau ata i yw dydd Gwener 28 Mawrth, felly dim ond tair wythnos sydd ar ôl!

Os ydych chi wedi bod yn cadw cofnodion ond heb eu hanfon nhw eto cofiwch frysio – mae pob un o’ch cofnodion tywydd a blodau yn bwysig i fi! Bydd pob cofnod anfonwch chi ata i yn gwneud Ymchwiliad Bylbiau’r Gwanwyn yn well ac yn fwy cywir.

Os nad ydy’ch blodau wedi agor eto, peidiwch poeni. Gall tipyn ddigwydd mewn tair wythnos, yn enwedig os bydd yr haul yn tywynnu!

Hoffech ddefnyddio’ch planhigion i gynnal Astudiaeth Gwyddoniaeth Gwych? Rydw i wedi casglu rhai syniadau ar gyfer arbrofion allwch chi eu cynnal yn y dosbarth! Allwch chi dwyllo eich crocws? All eich cennin Pedr symud? Edrychwch ar Syniadau Athro'r Ardd am brojectau ymchwil. Yn ogystal ag arbrofion cyffrous, gallwch chi hefyd ddarllen fy hoff gerdd Saesneg! Cennin Pedr yw’r testun, a dyma’r pennill cyntaf:

 

Daffodils

I wander’d lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

gan William Wordsworth (1770-1850).

 

Ydych chi erioed wedi meddwl ysgrifennu cerdd am y gwanwyn? Neu beth am gerdd i’ch hoff blanhigyn? Rhowch gynnig ar farddoni!

Your questions, my answers:

Ladywell Primary School: We have had our computer system upgraded in school and it has been difficult for us to send weekly weather reports because we lost a lot of data which was stored on our apple mac and which we cant convert to PC. However we have been taking temperatures and it has not really been cold and we have had a lot of rain. Some of our plants didn't grow very well but our first daffodil opened today 25th February and it is 28 cm tall. We have another one about to open and some others not far away. We hope this is ok with you and we will send more information soon. Prof P: Sorry to hear you have had computer trouble Ladywell School, don’t worry, I completely understand. Thanks very much for sending your first flower record! Keep up the good work and send in your other flower records when they open.

Lakeside Primary: Daffodil comment: Only one is open and the one that has opened has only got half a pot of compost, we think it was knocked over and some soil lost so perhaps less soil has led to quicker flowering, but why? Prof P: Great question Lakeside! Do you have any ideas? This is my theory: A bulb closer to the surface may flower sooner because it warms up quicker and has less soil to push through when it starts to grow. So why don’t we plant them all close to the surface? Well, if there is a very cold winter the frost can damage bulbs that are too close to the surface, and then they may not grow at all.

The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School: We all brought our wellies into school this week so that we can go out and look at our bulbs whatever the weather. We went to check on them all on Friday and measured how tall the leaves were, and started recording them in a table like we had been doing in maths. We hope to do this every week now then we can make a graph of the results. Still no sign of flowers yet! Prof P: What a fantastic idea! I love making graphs, they are a great way to see what the numbers are telling me. You must be very dedicated scientists to bring your wellies in to school so you can measure your leaves. Well done, I am very impressed!

Diolch yn fawr

Gwanwyn yn Gwawrio

Postiwyd gan Catalena Angele ar 28 Chwefror 2014
Mae fy nghennin Pedr talaf yn 80mm o uchder.
Dim ond 30mm yw uchder fy nghrocws i.
Cennin Pedr chrocysau yn blodeuo ym Mharc Bute, Caerdydd.

Mae’r haul yn disgleirio drwy ffenest fy swyddfa yng Nghaerdydd ac mae’n teimlo fel gwanwyn o’r diwedd! Dyw fy mhlanhigion i ddim yn barod i flodeuo eto – mae’r cennin Pedr talaf yn 80mm o uchder a’r crocws talaf yn ddim ond 30mm o uchder – ond dwi’n siŵr y byddan nhw’n mwynhau’r heulwen! Fe dynnais i lun o’r cennin Pedr a’r crocysau yn eu blodau ym Mharc Bute yng Nghaerdydd y bore ’ma. On’d ydyn nhw’n brydferth?

Pa ysgolion sydd wedi cofnodi eu blodau cyntaf?

Cofnododd Ysgol Glan Cleddau bod eu crocws cyntaf wedi blodeuo, ac mae Ysgol Gynradd yr Archesgob Hutton yn Lloegr wedi cofnodi bod eu cennin Pedr cyntaf wedi blodeuo.Llongyfarchiadau, a da iawn chi am anfon eich cofnodion!

Dyma Ysgol Gynradd Rougemont yn anfon y neges hon: Mae cyffro mawr yma yn Ysgol Rougemont Athro’r ardd ... mae ein BYLBIAU DIRGEL wedi dechrau blodeuo! Mae nhw’n edrych yn iach iawn gyda choesau byrrach na’r cennin Pedr a blannon ni. Rydyn ni’n meddwl taw Narcissus ydyn nhw, Tete a Tete efallai? Byddwn ni’n anfon ffotograff cyn hir. Athro’r Ardd: Mae hynna’n gyffrous iawn Ysgol Rougemont, a da iawn chi am ymchwilio i weld pa fath o Narcissus ydyn nhw – gwyddoniaeth gwych! Rwy’n edrych ymlaen i weld y ffotograffau.

Dywedodd Ysgol Arbennig Kilmaron: ARSYLWI BYLBIAU’R LLYNEDD. Rydyn ni wedi bod yn monitro bylbiau crocws a chennin Pedr y llynedd i weld os yw’r hen fylbiau yn blodeuo cyn y rhai newydd. Ar ôl gwyliau hanner tymor dyma ni’n canfod bod bylbiau crocws y llynedd wedi blodeuo tra bod bylbiau eleni wedi blodeuo tua 7-10 diwrnod yn ddiweddarach. Rydyn ni’n gobeithio anfon cofnodion eleni tua diwedd yr wythnos nesaf. Athro’r Ardd:Arsylwi ac ymchwilio arbennig Ysgol Kilmaron! Rydych chi’n iawn bod bylbiau hŷn fel arfer yn blodeuo yn gynt na bylbiau newydd ifanc, ond y rheswm dros hyn yw eu bod nhw wedi cael blwyddyn ychwanegol i dyfu a storio bwyd.

 

Ys gwn i ble fydd y blodau nesaf yn agor? Gallwch chi weld ble mae’r blodau wedi agor hyd yn hyn drwy edrych ar y map yma.Os nad yw eich blodau chi wedi agor eto, gwyliwch nhw’n ofalus. Gallan nhw agor unrhyw ddiwrnod!

Cofiwch anfon eich cofnodion blodau ata i cyn gynted fydd y blodau’n agor. Os nad ydych chi’n cofio sut i wneud hyn, defnyddiwch y cyflwyniad PowerPoint Cadw cofnodion blodau, a darllen y dudalen Beth i'w gofnodi a phryd ar y wefan.

CYNGOR CRAFF:

  1. Gall pob disgybl yn y dosbarth anfon eu cofnodion blodau. Mae’r holl ddata fyddwn ni’n ei dderbyn yn cael ei ddefnyddio i ganfod dyddiad blodeuo cyfartalog pob ysgol. Gwyliwch y siart crocysau a’r siart cennin Pedr i weld y tablau yn newid wrth i fwy o ddata gyrraedd. Mae’n bwysig ofnadwy bod pob disgybl yn anfon eu cofnodion, fel bod y wefan yn gallu cyfrifo dyddiad blodeuo cyfartalog yr ysgol.
  2. Bydd y cennin Pedr yn troi ei ben i lawr ychydig cyn blodeuo. Fydd y blodyn ddim wedyn yn llenwi â d?r ar ôl agor.
  3. Rhaid i chi gyd anfon eich cofnodion blodau er mwyn ennill y Gystadleuaeth Gwyddonwyr Gwych!

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Your questions, my answers:

Ysgol Terrig: It snowed heavily on Monday morning and stopped about lunch time. Our bulbs are starting to grow :) Prof P: I’m glad your bulbs are growing, did you go out to play in the snow?

Raglan VC Primary: We missed Tuesday because it was raining cat's and dog's, and we had bike training. Prof P: I love that saying! Can you imagine what it would be like if it really did rain cats and dogs? How would we measure that in our rain gauge?

Chatelherault Primary School: Sorry we did not record information on Thursday because we were away all day at a school trip. We were excited to see little green shoots in some of the plants. Prof P: Thanks for letting me know Chatelherault, I hope you had fun on your school trip.

Greyfriars RC Primary School: The plants are growing well and it's wonderful seeing them grow up. The mystery bulbs are really a mystery. from A and A :) Prof P: I hope your mystery will soon be solved Greyfriars!

Arkholme CE Primary School: Unfortunately the plant pots are standing in water this week. Let's hope next week is drier. The mystery bulbs are growing better than the others. Flower buds just appearing. From H. Prof P: I am sure your plants will survive the rain Arkholme, keep watching those flower buds!

Diolch yn fawr

Bwrw glaw yn sobor iawn...

Map y Swyddfa Dywydd yn dangos glawiad yn y DU yn Ionawr 2014.

On’d oedd mis Ionawr yn wlyb a gwyntog gyfeillion y gwanwyn? Dwi’n siŵr ei bod hi wedi bwrw bob dydd! Ond faint o law welson ni, o’i gymharu â’r cyfartaledd?

Mae Gwyddonwyr Tywydd y Swyddfa Dywydd wedi creu’r map yma o’r DU i ddangos faint o law a ddisgynnodd ym mis Ionawr. Gallwch chi gael golwg fanylach drwy ddilyn y ddolen.

Sut wnaethon nhw gyfrifo’r cyfartaledd glawiad? Mae Gwyddonwyr y Swyddfa Dywydd wedi bod yn cadw cofnodion tywydd am amser maith! Dyma nhw’n canfod cyfanswm y glawiad yn Ionawr am 30 mlynedd (rhwng 1981 a 2010) cyn rhannu â 30 i weld cyfartaledd blynyddol y glawiad.

Allwch chi weld y ddau liw glas tywyll? Disgynnodd rhwng dwy a thair gwaith yn fwy o law na’r cyfartaledd yn yr ardaloedd yma yn ystod mis Ionawr? Allwch chi weld yr ardaloedd du yn ne Lloegr a dwyrain yr Alban? Roedd y glawiad yn yr ardaloedd yma dros dair gwaith yn fwy na’r cyfartaledd yn ystod mis Ionawr!

Cyngor craff i ddefnyddio’r map:

  • Mae 100% o’r cyfartaledd yn golygu ei bod hi wedi glawio yr un faint â’r cyfartaledd.
  • Mae 200% o’r cyfartaledd yn golygu ei bod hi wedi glawio ddwywaith cymaint â’r cyfartaledd.

Allwch chi ganfod eich cartref ar y map? Beth yw lliw y map yn eich ardal chi? faint o law ddisgynnodd yn lleol? Oedd mwy neu llai o law na’r cyfartaledd? Efallai y gall eich athro eich helpu i ateb y cwestiynau yma!

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Gladestry C.I.W. School: Our school was closed on Thursday because of a power cut so our head teacher recorded the results that day. Prof P: We done to your head teacher! I am very glad your head teacher is helping you with your investigation.

St Mellons Church in Wales Primary School: Hello Professor Plant. It has been so windy this week that our thermometer has blown off the wall and broken. We have been using the car thermometer. L, J and L-b. Prof P: Hello L, J and L-b at St Mellons School! I am very sorry to hear that your thermometer is broken, I will email your teacher and arrange to send you a new one. Well done for your quick thinking in using the car thermometer.

Bleasdale CE Primary School: It is very cold and wet. Prof P: I agree Bleasdale School!

Ysgol Gynradd Dolgellau: Yn anffodus mae ein thermometr wedi torri ar ol cael ei chwythu gan y gwynt mawr yn ystod yr wythnos. Athro’r Ardd: Trueni mawr i glywed hyn Ysgol Gynradd Dolgellau. Bydda i’n e-bostio eich athro i drefnu anfon thermomedr newydd atoch chi.

Manor Road Primary School (Lancashire): on Wednesday there was a red weather warning but luckily the plants stayed in place. Prof P: I’m very happy to hear that your plants are okay!

Stanford in the Vale Primary School: It is very rainy here but we are not flooded. Prof P: I am very glad to hear that Stanford! What colour is the rainfall map is your area?

Burscough Bridge Methodist School: The heavy gales have caused the rainfall measurements to be unreadable as the measuring vessel was continually disrupted and blown over. Prof P: Gosh it must have been very stormy. Thanks for letting me know, keep up the good work!

Diolch yn fawr

Blodau cyntaf Cymru a Lloegr!

Postiwyd gan Catalena Angele ar 14 Chwefror 2014
Mae crocysau sy'n tyfu yn y ddaear ger Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd yn blodeuo'n barod.
Cennin Pedr yn tyfu yn y ddaear ger Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd. Mae nhw'n llawer talach na'r cennin Pedr sydd gyda fi mewn potiau!

Newyddion gwych gyfeillion y gwanwyn, mae’r cofnodion blodau cyntaf wedi cyrraedd!

Ysgol Gynradd North Road, Carnforth yn Swydd Gaerhirfryn, oedd yr ysgol gyntaf i anfon eu cofnodion ata i. Agorodd eu crocws cyntaf ar 4 Chwefror.

Ysgol Gynradd Wirfoddol Reoledig Raglan yn sir Fynwy, oedd yr ysgol gyntaf yng Nghymru i anfon eu cofnodion blodau. Agorodd eu crocws cyntaf ar 7 Chwefror.

Da iawn i’r ddwy ysgol am anfon eu cofnodion ata i!

Mae Ysgol Gynradd yr Archesgob Hutton yn Lloegr hefyd wedi sylwi bod y crocysau a blanon nhw yn y ddaear yn dechrau tyfu. Bydd planhigion yn y ddaear yn aml yn blodeuo’n gynt na phlanhigion mewn potiau. Oes unrhyw un arall wedi sylwi ar hyn?

Mae’r cofnodion blodau wedi cyrraedd yn llawer cynt na’r llynedd. 1 Mawrth oedd dyddiad blodeuo cynharaf y crocysau y llynedd. Beth yw’r rheswm am hyn?

Wrth edrych ar ganlyniadau Project Bylbiau’r Gwanwyn dros y blynyddoedd, gallwn ni weld bod y dyddiadau blodeuo yn gynt gan fo glawiad yn uwch, y tymheredd yn uwch a mwy o oriau o heulwen. Meddyliwch pa dywydd ydych chi wedi ei brofi yn ddiweddar? Fydd y tywydd eleni yn helpu eich blodau i dyfu ys gwn i?

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Ysgol Terrig: Our bulbs are now growing above the soil. Prof P: Fantastic new Ysgol Terrig, hopefully it won’t be long until you start to see flowers.

Glyncollen Primary School: we are very exited because are bulbs are going to open soon. next week we are going to measure them. Prof P: Great investigating Glyncollen, have fun with your measuring.

Manor Road Primary School (Lancashire): It rained a lot and it was very cold and windy. It has not been minus yet. Prof P: I haven’t recorded a minus temperature in Cardiff either.

Stanford in the Vale Primary School: We have had alot of rain recently but the bulbs continue to grow bigger and bigger. Prof P: It certainly has been very very rainy, I hope you haven’t had any flooding.

Greyfriars RC Primary School: Me and D. are watering the plants really well. We enjoyed it alot. D: I am really enjoying the bulbs. My one is called xdox and pop. It was supposed to be xbox and pop. Thank you enjoyed this week. Prof P: What funny names for your plants! Very imaginative.

Freuchie Primary School: The children were really excited on Monday 27th January when they realised that 40mm of water had been collected over the weekend! Prof P: Wow - that really is a lot of rain!

Woodplumpton St. Anne's Primary School: We are very excited because the first shoots are beginning to appear. It has been very wet but so far the temperature has not dropped below zero. We wonder if this is unusual. Prof P: Great question Woodplumpton! I have had a look back over our weather data for previous years and it looks like this is not that unusual. The average daytime temperature for the month has only dropped below zero once in the 8 years we have been running the Spring Bulbs investigation. This was in December 2011 when there was heavy snow. I do think it has been less cold this January than in previous years. I look forward to receiving the weather data from all the schools so I can compare all the data in my Spring Bulbs Report!

Newport Primary School: Horrible wet weather most of the week. Prof P: The trouble with the rain is that it gets in the way of playtime doesn’t it?

Manor Road Primary School (Lancashire): The weather has been cold, wet and windy this week. We have spotted our first shoots peeping through in our pots though. Prof P: It seems like your bulbs don’t mind the wet weather too much.

Chatelherault Primary School: Bad news some people have been pulling out our bulbs but some are growing. And we have had a lot of rain and sun. Prof P: Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that someone has disturbed your bulbs. I hope that the ones that are left will be okay. Sun and rain are the perfect combination to make them grow!

Diolch yn fawr

Penwythnos diwethaf, ymunodd miloedd o bobl mewn gyda’r arolwg adar mwya’r byd - Gwylio Adar yr Ardd gyda’r RSPB! Ar ddydd Sadwrn, wnes i ymuno gyda’r hwyl trwy wneud trîts bach i’r adar gydag ymwelwyr i’r amgueddfa. Wedi fy ysbrydoli, nes i dreulio ychydig amser yn y guddfan adar yma yn Sain Ffagan. Dyma gwpwl o lunie o be welais…

Wnaethoch chi gymryd rhan yn yr arolwg? Be welsoch yn eich gardd? Cofiwch i adrodd yn ôl i’r RSPB - Big Garden Bird Watch

Blagur Bach

Postiwyd gan Danielle Cowell ar 29 Ionawr 2014
Egin cennin Pedr bychan – 1cm o daldra.
Bylbiau flynedd ddiwethaf - tyfu'n llawer talach.

Helo gyfeillion y gwanwyn.

Yw eich bylbiau chi’n tyfu? Cofiwch eu gwylio nhw’n ofalus o ddiwedd Ionawr oherwydd efallai y bydd egin bach gwyrdd yn dechrau gwthio drwy’r pridd – mae’n gyffrous iawn pan fydd y cyntaf yn ymddangos! Roeddwn i mor hapus pan edrychais i yn yr ardd yr wythnos hon a gweld bod egin bach yn fy mhotiau planhigion – mae nhw’n hyfryd!

Anfonodd Ysgol Gynradd Archbishop Hutton neges ata i: Rhuthrodd A. a J. draw yn dweud bod ein crocysau cyntaf wedi ymddangos dros y penwythnos ac rydyn ni wedi tynnu ffotograffau ohonyn nhw.

Newyddion gwych! Da iawn A. a J.! Rwy’n falch iawn bod y planhigion yn eich cyffroi chi. Byddwn i wrth fy modd yn gweld y ffotograffau, allwch chi eu e-bostio nhw ata i?

Rwy’n gobeithio eich bod chi i gyd yn mwynhau’r ymchwiliad, ffrindiau. Pan fydd eich planhigion yn dechrau gwthio drwy’r pridd, beth am i chi dynnu lluniau hefyd? Os e-bostiwch chi’r lluniau ata i galla i eu dangos nhw ar y blog.

 

BETH NESAF…

  •  Daliwch ati gyda’r gwaith da o anfon eich cofnodion tywydd ata i.
  • Gwyliwch am yr egin cyntaf.
  • Gwyliwch bob dydd wrth iddyn nhw dyfu’n fwy.
  • Pan fydd eich blodau’n agor - dathlwch!! Yna cofnodwch y dyddiad a thaldra’r planhigyn.
  • Anfonwch eich Adroddiad Blodau ata i drwy’r wefan.

 Defnyddiwch fy nghyflwyniad Power Point i ddysgu sut i gadw cofnodion blodau.

 

Eich cwestiynau, fy atebion:

Ysgol Bro Eirwg: Blwyddyn Newydd Dda Athro’r Ardd! Ar ôl y gwyliau roedd y casglydd glaw yn llawn, felly methu cymryd darlleniad cywir. Arthro’r Ardd: Blwyddyn Newydd Dda Ysgol Bro Eirwg! Diolch am roi gwybod i fi am eich problemau mesur glaw, bydda i’n nodi hyn. Peidiwch â phoeni, digwyddodd hyn i lawer o ysgolion oherwydd iddi fwrw cymaint o law dros y gwyliau.

Cawthorne's Endowed Primary School: Im sorry we missed Friday we still want to go to Wales!!! Please wish us luck in Manchester. Prof P: Wishing you lots and lots of luck with your Spring bulbs Cawthorne School! Just wanted to let you know that if you are an English School and you win the Super Scientist Prize, we will arrange a day out for you in England instead of you travelling to Wales. It will still be a Super fun day, I promise.

Woodplumpton St. Anne's Primary School: sorry we forgot to take readings on two days - our teacher was not in school to remind us. There was a lot of rain over the holidays! We were surprised the temperatures were as high as they were. It felt colder. We talked about wind chill. Prof P: You are doing a great job and I am very pleased to hear you have talked about wind chill, it can make us feel VERY cold, can't it? Brrrrr.

The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School: When we came back from our Christmas break the rainfall gauge was overflowing as nobody had been able to empty it over the holidays. The ground is getting very wet and muddy and we have to be careful collecting the information. Prof P: Be careful in the mud! We don't want any accidents, were you wearing your school shoes or your wellies?

Raglan VC Primary: Extreme rainfall on Wednesday evening. Prof P: There has been some very extreme weather recently Raglan, you are right!

Llanishen Fach C.P School: No rainfall measurement for Monday as rain gauge was full from holiday. Very high measurement for Friday rainfall - gauge was emptied on Weds and no rainfall Thursday during day. Prof P: Excellent weather reporting Llanishen Fach.

Stanford in the Vale Primary School: Monday we were off. We have noticed that the bulbs have started to sprout and are growing nicely. Prof P: Fantastic news!! Thanks for letting me know I hope you enjoy watching them grow!

Greyfriars RC Primary School: it was 50mm because that was all over the holidays. C: this is exciting and i dont know whats gonna happen. R: it was fun watering the plants with C. Prof P: Well done C and R, its great to hear you are working together and having fun.

Ysgol Nant Y Coed: School was closed on Monday sorry professor plant. Prof P: That's okay Ysgol Nant Y Coed, keep up the good work!

John Cross CE Primary School: we had some problems because sheep got on to our field and knocked over the rain collector. Prof P: What cheeky sheep! Maybe they were interested in your investigation and came over to have a closer look.

 

Crochet

Postiwyd gan Sian Lile-Pastore ar 27 Ionawr 2014

At the beginning of January we had a crochet session where myself and Anna Phillips attempted to turn everyone into crochet queens. Anna made up a great little easy pattern to crochet circles which could then be turned into a garland, or maybe a coaster if you stopped at just making one. We will be having another crochet meet up on March 15 so come along to that one, and because everyone seems keen I'll try and add more dates to the rest of the year.
