Dysgwch Nofio drwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg

Mae Better Caerdydd yn gweithio mewn partneriaeth â Menter Caerdydd i gynnig y Cynllun Dysgu Nofio drwy gyfrwng y Gymraeg.

DYSGWCH FWY

 

Mae ein rhaglen Dysgu Nofio wedi ei gynllunio fel bod pob disgybl yn cael ei asesu’n barhaus drwy gydol y cynllun, mewn amgylchedd diogel a hwyliog. Mae’r fframwaith yn caniatau i ddisgyblion weithio tuag at ennill bathodynnau a thystysgrifau fel cydnabyddiaeth o’u cyrhaeddiad.

Noder: Rhaid i ddisgyblion basio pob elfen ym mhob Ton i safon dderbyniol er mwyn mynd ymlaen i’r dosbarth nesaf.

Mae Fframwaith Dysgu Nofio Cymru wedi ei lunio gan Gorff Llywodraethu Nofio yng Nghymru, ‘Nofio Cymru’ mewn cydweithrediad â Chwaraeon Cymru a gyda chefnogaeth Llywodraeth Cymru a’r weledigaeth i blant fwynhau nofio a gweithgareddau eraill ar y dŵr weddill eu bywydau. Mae’r fframwaith wedi ei gynllunio drwy gyfrwng ymgynghoriad helaeth gan arbenigwyr yn y diwydiant addysg a dŵr. Mae egwyddorion sylfaenol dysgu plant i nofio yn aros yn ddigyfnewid ac mae’r fframwaith yn hyrwyddo’r defnydd o ‘ddysgu drwy chwarae’. Mae hyn wedi ei ganfod drwy ymchwil addysgol i fod y dull mwyaf effeithiol lle bydd plant yn dysgu ac athrawon yn cael eu hannog i ddefnyddio amrywiaeth o ddulliau, gemau, gweithgareddau a sefyllfaoedd eraill i gyflawni’r canlyniadau.

 Dosbarthiadau Cynllun Dysgu Nofio i Blant

Oedolyn a Babi/Plentyn.  Mae nifer o’n pyllau nofio yn cynnal dosbarthiadau nofio  Oedolyn a Babi/Plentyn  sydd un ai yn sesiynau ‘galw heibio’ neu’n gyrsiau y gellir cadw lle arnynt yn ystod y Tymor. Mae’r dosbarthiadau hyn ar gyfer babis sydd o leia’n 6 mis oed, babanod a phlant cyn-ysgol GYDAG oedolyn yn y dŵr. Nod y sesiynau yw dangos sut i fynd â’ch plentyn i’r dŵr yn ddiogel, gan roi hyder iddynt gyda’ch plentyn mewn amgylchedd pwll trwy gyfrwng gweithgareddau dŵr

 Cyn-Ysgol

Mae ein Cynllun Dysgu Nofio yn dechrau ar y lefel sylfaen lle caiff plant ifanc eu hannog i ddatblygu eu hyder yn y dŵr yn eu blynyddoedd cynnar trwy gyflwyniad i amgylchedd y wers nofio. Mae’r sesiynau Cyn-Ysgol hyn yn benodol ar gyfer plant 3 oed a’r pwyslais yn y gwersi hyn yw cyflwyno sgiliau symud syml iawn yn y dŵr trwy gyfrwng gemau a hwyl dan arweiniad athro a dysgu i nofio heb gynhaliaeth rhiant/gofalwr yn y dŵr.

 Ton 1  i  6
(Cam Sgiliau Symud Syml) 

Mae rhaglen Ton yn canolbwyntio ar ddatblygu’r pedwar dull nofio ac nid ar y pellter y gellir ei gyflawni. Mae’r pwyslais ar ddysgu drwy gemau a gweithgareddau hwyliog, sydd wedi ei brofi fel y dull mwyaf effeithiol i blant ddysgu nofio.

Mae’r gwersi hefyd yn cyflwyno diogelwch dŵr i’r plant ac yn cynnig rhagflas o ddisgyblaethau dŵr eraill.

Learn To Swim via the Medium of Welsh

Better Cardiff works in partnership with Menter Caerdydd to provide the Learn To Swim Scheme via the medium of Welsh.

Our Learn to Swim programme is designed so all pupils are continually assessed throughout the scheme, in a safe and fun environment. The framework allows pupils to work towards gaining badges and certificates in recognition of their achievements.  

Please note: Pupils are required to pass all the elements in each Wave to the recommended standards in order to progress to the next class.

The Welsh Learn to Swim Framework has been devised by the National Governing Body of Swimming in Wales ‘Swim Wales’ in association with Sport Wales and supported by the Welsh Government with the vision for children to enjoy swimming and other water-based activities for the rest of their lives.  The framework has been designed through extensive consultation by experts in the aquatic and education industry. The basic principles of teaching children to swim remain unchanged and the framework promotes the use of the ‘learning through play’. This has been found through educational research, to be the most effective method by which children learn and teachers are encouraged to utilise a variety of methods, games, activities and scenarios to achieve the outcomes.

Children’s Learn to Swim Scheme Classes

Adult & Baby/ChildA number of our swimming pools run Adult & Baby/Child swimming classes these are either specific 'drop in' sessions or Term Time bookable courses.  These classes are intended for babies aged at least 6 months, toddlers and pre-school children WITH an adult in the water.  The sessions aim to show adults how to take their child into water safely, giving them the confidence in handling a young child in a pool environment through fun water activities.

Pre School

Our junior Learn to Swim Scheme starts at a foundation level where young children are encourage to develop confidence in the water in their early years through an introduction to the swimming lesson environment.   These Pre-School sessions and are specifically for children 3 years old and the emphasis in these lessons is to introduce very basic motor skills in the water through teacher lead games and fun and learning to swim without parental/guardian support in the water.

Wave 1 to 6
(FUNdamental Movement Skills Phase) 

The Wave programme focuses on the development of all four swimming strokes and not on a distance that can be achieved. The emphasis is very much on learning through the use of games and fun activities, which has been proven to be the most effective way for children to learn to swim.

These lessons also introduce children to water safety and offer a taster to other aquatic disciplines.
