Goodnight Mister Tom

Fel rhan o thema’r plant ym mis Medi, sef ‘I’r Gad’, rydym wedi trefnu taith i weld cynhyrchiad o ‘Goodnight Mister Tom’ yn Theatr Coed Duon.

Ar gyfer Blwyddyn 6, byddwn yn mynd ar nos Iau, 7fed o Fedi gyda'r nos. Bydd y bws yn gadael Ysgol Panteg am 6:15pm ac yn dychwelyd am 10:00pm. Gofynnwn eich bod chi ar safle yr ysgol erbyn 6:00pm fel gall y bws gadael ar amser.


Ar gyfer Blwyddyn 4 a 5, rydym wedi llwyddo i drefnu sesiwn gwylio arbennig ar ddydd Sadwrn, 9fed o Hydref. Bydd y bws yn gadael Ysgol Panteg am 1:15 ac yn dychwelyd am 5:00. Gofynnwn eich bod chi ar safle yr ysgol erbyn 1:00 fel gall y bws gadael ar amser.


Cost y daith hon yw £17. Bydd angen taliad llawn erbyn Medi 4ydd am 10:00yb. Ar ôl yr amser hwn, ni fyddwn yn gallu dal unrhyw docynnau gan y byddant yn cael eu rhyddhau yn ôl i'r theatr i'r cyhoedd eu prynu. Mae gostyngiad o 10% i'r rhai sy'n derbyn Grant Datblygu Disgyblion (Cinio Ysgol Am Ddim).


Mae hwn bellach yn fyw ar Civica Pay. Os ydych yn cael unrhyw anhawster talu, technegol neu fel arall, rhowch wybod i ni cyn gynted â phosibl.

DERBYN

Cynllun Meddwlgarwch

Mae dosbarthiadau derbyn Ysgol Panteg wedi cael eu tystysgrifau ar ôl cwblhau'r cwrs meddylgarwch ‘dots’. Cawson nhw gymaint o hwyl dros y 30 gwers – gweithgareddau, gemau, ac yn bwysicach, ymarferion byr meddylgarwch, wedi ei datblygu yn enwedig ar gyfer plant 3-6 oed. Ymysg eu hoff ymarferion oedd Ymarfer Cwtsh, Ymarfer Stampio Traed, Anadlu Tedi ac wrth gwrs Cegaid Feddylgar. Roedd y staff yn mwynhau’r gweithgareddau hefyd!


Mae cwricwlwm ‘dots’ yn cyfrannu at bedwar diben Cwricwlwm i Gymru newydd, yn ogystal â’r Maes Iechyd a Lles. Roedd eu profiadau yn cynnwys canolbwyntio, teimladau yn y corff, gweithio gydag emosiynau, cydnabod a defnyddio’r synhwyrau a lot mwy. Maen nhw i gyd yn gallu ymuno mewn ymarferion amrywiol er mwyn cefnogu eu hiechyd meddwl a lles.


Bydd y plant yn parhau eu hymarfer meddylgarwch ym mlwyddyn 1, fel rhan o’n hymrwymiad i iechyd a lles disgyblion Ysgol Panteg. Ni yw’r ysgol gyntaf i ddysgu’r cwrs trwy gyfrwng Gymraeg.

Mae disgyblion arall wedi cwblhau cyrsiau meddylgarwch hefyd – ‘Paws b’ gyda Bl 3 a Bl 5, a ‘.breathe’ gyda Bl 6. Mae pedwar aelod o’n staff newydd gwblhau’r cwrs meddylgarwch ‘.dechrau’ ar gyfer oedolion – unwaith eto'r tro gyntaf yn y Gymraeg.

Wonder - Noson Ffilm

Neithiwr, cafodd ein plant Cam Cynnydd 3 noson ffilm er mwyn gwylio ffilm yn seiliedig ar lyfr y maent wedi bod yn ei astudio.


Mae ‘Wonder’ gan R.J. Palacio yn nofel galonogol sy’n procio’r meddwl ac sy’n archwilio thema empathi a derbyn eraill. Mae'r stori yn dilyn bachgen ifanc o'r enw August Pullman, a gafodd ei eni gyda gwahaniaethau wyneb sydd wedi ei wneud yn destun syllu a sibrwd. Mae'r llyfr yn ymchwilio i daith Auggie wrth iddo fynd i'r ysgol brif ffrwd am y tro cyntaf, gan wynebu heriau a buddugoliaethau ar hyd y ffordd.


Mae ‘Wonder’ yn pwysleisio pwysigrwydd caredigrwydd, tosturi, a dealltwriaeth mewn byd sy’n aml yn barnu ar sail ymddangosiadau. Trwy safbwyntiau lluosog, mae'r llyfr a’r ffilm yn archwilio effaith presenoldeb Auggie ar ei deulu, ei ffrindiau, a'r gymuned ysgol fwy. Mae'n annog ni i edrych y tu hwnt i farn arwynebol a chofleidio harddwch amrywiaeth.

Mae stori ‘Wonder’ yn atgof pwerus o’r gallu dynol i empathi a’r gallu i ddod o hyd i gryfder mewn adfyd. Mae wedi atseinio gyda darllenwyr o bob oed, gan hyrwyddo empathi, derbyniad, a'r ddealltwriaeth y dylem ddewis caredigrwydd yn anad dim arall.

BLWYDDYN 6

Seremoni Graddio - Atgof

Cofiwch fod dydd Mercher nesaf (19eg) gennym ein seremoni graddio Blwyddyn 6.


I ateb ychydig o gwestiynau:


-Nid oes rhaid i chi archebu tocynnau ymlaen llaw. Mae gennym ni 150 o gadeiriau - felly ni allwn gael y teulu cyfan yn troi lan! Byddwch yn gall os gwelwch yn dda.


-Dylai plant wisgo gwisg ysgol. Yn amlwg, nid oes angen siwmperi porffor a byddwn yn annog pobl i beidio â’u gwisgo oherwydd gall fynd yn boeth yn y neuadd.


-Bydd y seremoni yn para tua 30 munud.


-Bydd lluniau swyddogol yn cael eu tynnu er eich bod hefyd yn rhydd i dynnu lluniau o'ch plentyn eich hun.


-Bydd y plant yn cael cyfle i fynd ymlaen i’r gwair ar y plaza i daflu eu hetiau i’r awyr!


-Yr amser cychwyn yw 1:45pm bydd drysau'n annog. Bydd y drysau'n agor am 1:30pm.

RECEPTION

Mindfulness Course

The reception classes at Ysgol Panteg have been awarded their certificates after completing the ‘dots’ mindfulness course. They had so much fun throughout the 30 sessions – activities, games, and most importantly, short mindfulness practices developed especially for 3-6 year olds. Amongst their favourite activities were Hugging Practice, Stamping Feet Practice, Teddy Breathing, and of course, Mindful Mouthful. The staff enjoyed the activities too!

The ’dots’ curriculum contributes to the four purposes of the new Curriculum for Wales as well as the Health and Wellbeing Area of Learning and Experience. Their experience included concentrating, feelings in the body, working with emotions, recognising and using the senses and lots more. They can all join in various practices in order to support their mental health and wellbeing.

The children will be continuing ther mindfulness practice in Year 1 as part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of Ysgol Panteg pupils. We are the first school to teach the course through the medium of Welsh.

Other pupils have completed mindfulness courses too – ‘Paws b” for Y3 and Y5 and ‘.breathe’ with Y6. Four members of our staff have just completed ‘.dechrau’ (.begin) for adults – once again the first time in Welsh.

YEARS 4, 5 AND 6

Wonder - Film Night

Last night, our Progress Step 3 children had a film evening in order to watch a film based on a book they have been studying.

‘Wonder’ by R.J. Palacio is a heartwarming and thought-provoking novel and that explores the theme of empathy and acceptance. The story follows a young boy named August Pullman, who was born with facial differences that have made him the subject of stares and whispers. The book delves into Auggie's journey as he enters mainstream school for the first time, facing both challenges and triumphs along the way.

‘Wonder’ emphasises the importance of kindness, compassion, and understanding in a world that often judges based on appearances. Through multiple perspectives, the book and film examines the impact of Auggie's presence on his family, friends, and the larger school community. It encourages us to look beyond surface-level judgments and embrace the beauty of diversity.

The story of ‘Wonder’ serves as a powerful reminder of the human capacity for empathy and the ability to find strength in adversity. It has resonated with readers of all ages, promoting empathy, acceptance, and the understanding that we should choose kindness above all else.

YEAR 6

Graduation - Reminder

Remember that next Wednesday (19th) we have our Year 6 graduation.
