Hanes William Ellis Williams [1881-1962]
Mab i chwarelwr oedd William Ellis Williams, a dreuliodd ei blentyndod yn byw yn Nhyddyn Canol, Rachub. Roedd ganddo ddiddordeb hynod mewn Mathemateg, a graddiodd yn y pwnc ym Mhrifysgol Bangor ym 1901. Yn ddiweddarch,ymddiddorodd ym maes peirianneg ac awyrennau, a dywedir iddo adeiladu rhannau o beiriannau awyren yn ei sied yn Nhyddyn Canol, cyn mynd â nhw draw i’r Brifysgol ym Mangor. Adeiladodd ei awyren gyntaf, ‘Bamboo Bird’ yn 1910, ond ni chafwyd lwyddiant. Rhoddodd gynnig arall arni yn 1913 ar draeth Llanddona, ac roedd honno’n gampwaith! Daeth y gŵr o Dyddyn Canol yn enw pwysig iawn yn yn y byd adeiladu awyrennau yn dilyn hyn, ac mae’n bwysig iawn ein bod yn cofio amdano! Mae ein disgyblion Cyfnod Sylfaen wedi cael eu swyno gyda`r hanes hwn, diolch i ymchwil Mrs Marian Jones.

Life without electricity was a totally different world wasn’t it! It is difficult for our small children to imagine such a life nowadays,especially considering that they are brought up in such a technological age – and playing and working on different screens. It was therefore a pleasure to invite our friends over from the Records Office to talk with Mrs Parry Owen’s pupils and explain how life was really like in our cottages in by-gone days ..a tallow candle; kettle on the fire; a large fork to hold a slice of bread in front of a huge fire to make toast; blue slates on the kitchen floor; aprons; a domestic iron in the fire to heat it; bellows etc In addition, the children were full of interest to learn about washing day practices in by-gone days, - hasn’t the world changed!

Thanksgiving at Carmel Chapel
On a fine evening in October, Mrs Davies Jones again had the opportunity to visit Carmel Chapel to talk with the children. As we remember the Great War this year, the important word: Peace, was discussed. Then, everybody in the audience were transfixed as Gwydion Rhys read the story of three brothers who had left their locality, this area, to take part in the Great War. Thank you for reading so meaningfully, Gwydion. This year, as usual, the standards of the children’s performances was excellent and it is a privilege to see our young people; our former pupils, remaining loyal to the cause and participating so skilfully in a number of ways, including two-part singing. Thanks also to a member of our staff, Ms Elin Mair, for her role. In addition, our sincere thanks to Mrs Helen Williams for being as enthusiastic as ever, presenting our young people with things to treasure. The excellent work seen on the walls of Carmel Chapel must also be noted – a feast to the eye, work done by the Dwylo Prysur. The experiences gained by the children and young people are invaluable, led by Mrs Helen Williams and her team and thanks for the golden opportunity to collaborate so closely with you as a chapel.

Unveiling the Memorial to the fallen Welsh soldiers
Ysgol Llanllechid received international attention during the summer, as a pupil from the school, Gwydion Rhys, participated in the unveiling a memorial to the fallen Welsh soldiers at Langemark, Flanders. Gwydion was selected due to the school’s links with the North Wales Rugby Choir, the official choir of the Remembrance. He read the story of three brothers from Dyffryn Ogwen who fought in the First World War.

Hundreds attended the ceremony, including sevearl Welsh politicians and the First Minister, Carwyn Jones. Several travelled from Dyffryn Ogwen to provide support, including Gwydion’s school friends, Cerwyn and Elin Roberts, Mrs Davies Jones and former teachers from the school: Mrs Mary Jones and Mrs Eirian Jones.

At the end of the ceremony, Gwydion was interviewed by several broadcasters, including Gerallt Pennant (Heno), Dei Tomos (BBC Radio Cymru) and a small group from Dechrau Canu, Dechrau Canmol, who were there filming a programme for Remembrance Sunday.
That evening, Gwydion was again on the stage - playing the cello in the Choir concert at Langemark Church, that had been entirely re-built following its complete destruction during the War. On this occasion, hed shared the stage with Roy Noble, Rhys Meirion, Dylan Cernyw and the choir.

Research by Year 6 – The Second World War

After reading about the sad story of Ann Frank, we were surprised that there was so much hatred towards the Jews and sad that more people had not stood up to the Nazis racism. We then learnt about a young man from London called Nicholas Winton who rescued 669 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia before the start of the Second World War. He is called the “British Schindler”. It is awe inspiring to think of an ordinary young man, when he recognized the danger to the Jews, who acted so heroically. His wife found the evidence in an old record book and there were huge celebrations when the children who were saved came to know who their rescuer was; most of them had lost their families in Hitler’s abominable death camps. Nicholas Winton did not see himself as a hero, only an ordinary person, who had taken action when he saw the need to do so.

The children had the idea of researching to see whether this amazing human being was still alive. There was considerable surprise when it was discovered that he was celebrating his 105th birthday this year! The pupils decided to send him a special message. We wished to thank him for inspiring us and for giving us hope that we would also take action to assist when situations are against us. We sent him an enormous card and a personal message from each and every one of us. Imagine our surprise when we received a reply from his daughter saying that he was very appreciative of our message and that he had put up our colourful card on display in his room! If you wish to learn more about this ordinary but extraordinary man, the book “If it’s not impossible…” by Barbara Winton provides further explanation and has just been launched at Gŵyl y Gelli.

A warm welcome was received from Hedd Wyn’s nephew, Gerald Williams and it was indeed a privilege to tread the area’s paths and visit his former home. It was a thrilling experience to leran about the imposing chairs and the famous ‘Gadair Ddu’ or the throne, as Mr Williams called it. A special thanks also to Mr and Mrs Alwyn Bevan and members of North Wales Rugby Choir for facilitating the trip and for being there to welcome us. It was an enormous pleasure to sing together the englynion in memory of Hedd Wyn, (by R. Williams Parry) in the area where he spent his childhood. Then, we visited Canolfan Endowain and it was real honour to receive such high praise for Y6 from Mr Iscoed Williams. We thank him for visiting us at the Ganolfan and for his interesting talk. We then travelled along the coastline looking at magnificent scenery, glancing at Harlech castle before reaching Capel Salem. Thanks to Miss Catherine Richards, a loyal member of the chapel for her clear presentation that brought the story of the Salem chapel picture alive! Thanks to individuals such as Mr Williams and Miss Richards who are so ready to interpret our history and heritage for the younger generation. ‘Amen’ indeed to Eilir’s words.

Sioeau Nadolig
Yr Adran Iau

Roedd neuadd Ysgol Dyffryn Ogwen yn orlawn ar noson sioe Nadolig yr Adran Iau a oedd fel un Gān Actol fawr! Roedd Dr Who yn teithio drwy wahanol gyfnodau mewn amser er mwyn ceisio darganfod gwir ystyr y Nadolig. Aeth i gyfnod yr hen chwedlau, a’r Chwedegau gan gyfarfod a chewri, llygod, y Beatles, mods a rocers cyn cyrraedd golygfa’r preseb ym Methlehem. Roedd yr actio a’r canu yn fendigedig yn ôl yr arfer, a sawl deigryn yn cael ei golli wrth glywed anthem De Affrica yn cael ei pherfformio mor wych i gofio am Nelson Mandela. Diolch i bawb a anfonodd gardiau ac e byst i Ysgol Llanllechid yn llongyfarch y disgyblion ar eu perfformiadau. Diolch i Mr Alun LLwyd am gael defnyddio Neuadd Ysgol Dyffryn Ogwen ar gyfer llwyfanu`r sioe. Cliciwch yma i weld y lluniau

Halibalŵ!
Aeth dosbarthiadau Blynyddoedd 1 a 2 a ni i Wlad yr Halibalŵ eleni, lle’r oedd Siôn Corn ar goll, wedi gwrthdrawiad â thardis Dr Hŵ fry yn yr awyr ar Noswyl Nadolig! Gyda’i geirw, ei gorrachod a chymorth Huw Bob Lliw, llwyddodd Siôn Corn i ddarganfod y cyfrinair hud oedd ei angen er mwyn cysylltu â Dr Hŵ drachefn. Roedd rhaid iddo ddatrys nifer o gliwiau a goresgyn anawsterau ar ei ffordd, yn enwedig pan ddaeth y gwrachod, y Bobli Woblis, y Bwlis, a’r Jeli Welis i’r golwg! Roedd y plant yn canu, actio a dawnsio’n ardderchog, a chafodd y rhieni eu synnu fod disgyblion mor ifanc yn perfformio mor hyderus ar y llwyfan! Gwledd yn wir! Cliciwch yma i weld y lluniau


Côr Ysgol Llanllechid a Chôr Rygbi Gogledd Cymru
Aeth côr yr ysgol i Landudno i Egwlys St Ioan, ar noson stormus cyn y Nadolig, i berfformio gyda Chôr Rygbi Gogledd Cymru. Gwahoddwyd y disgyblion gan Mrs Glena Bevan, aelod o Gôr Rygbi Gogledd Cymru. Roedd yr Eglwys o dan ei sang ac ysbryd y Nadolig yn llifo wrth i`r plant swyno`r gynulleidfa wrth ganu am stori`r Geni. Bydd hon yn noson a fydd yn aros yn y côf am amser maith. Cliciwch yma i weld y lluniau

Clwb yr Henoed
Croesawyd aelodau o Glwb yr Henoed i’r ysgol ychydig ddyddiau cyn diwedd y tymor, a chawsant y cyfle i glywed plant o bob oed yn canu rhai o ganeuon o`r sioeau Nadolig. Diddanwyd ein cyfeillion ymhellach gan y disgyblion sy`n derbyn gwersi ar y piano gan Mrs Sioned Webb ac roeddent werth eu gweld a phawb yn synnu eu bod wedi gwenud cymaint o gynnydd mewn un tymor! Roedd staff y gegin wedi bod wrthi`n ddiwyd yn paratoi danteithion ac roedd pawb yn canmol mins peis a bara brith Anti Mona! Diolch i bawb! Cliciwch yma i weld y lluniau

Gweld y byd mewn Galerïau
Galeri yw thema Bl6 a buom ar daith i Lerpwl i astudio celf yn y Walker Gallery. Roedd y disgyblion wedi ymgolli yn y celfyddyd gan ddatblygu eu chwaeth mewn gwaith creadigol o’r canol oesoedd crefyddol i waith haniaethol modern. Roedd rhywbeth i blesio pawb ac ymateb a brwdfrydedd Dewi Roberts yn crisialu’r profiad: “Mae hwn yn le da i bobl gyda dychymyg! Rwy’n gwneud straeon yn fy mhen wrth weld y lluniau”.
I ddilyn aethom yn ein blaenau i’r World Museum gerllaw gan ymgolli ym myd creadigol yr arteffactau o’r Affrig, Asia, America, a Oceania. Yna, i goroni’r cyfan cawsom hwyl yn gafael a chwarae gydag arteffactau o bedwar ban byd gan gynnwys gwisgo ponchos hardd a masgiau, gwneud pwls a chael siarad â phenglogau!!
