Overall aims and purpose

Bwriad y modiwl hwn yw gwerthuso damcaniaethau chwarae a’u goblygiadau ar gyfer deall sut mae plant ifanc yn dysgu. Mae’n edrych ar y llenyddiaeth ar greadigedd a’i gysylltiadau â chwarae a dysgu. Ymchwilir i’r berthynas rhwng y celfyddydau creadigol a chreadigedd mewn meysydd dysgu perthnasol eraill. Mae’n datblygu dealltwriaeth myfyrwyr o swyddogaeth y dychymyg wrth ddatblygu meddwl a sut mae plant bach yn dysgu trwy chwarae. Bydd angen i fyfyrwyr sy’n astudio’r modiwl hwn drefnu lleoliad byr lle ceir plant yn yr ystod oed perthnasol.

Course content

Mae’r modiwl hwn yn cynnwys: • datblygiad creadigedd o’i ddechreuadau cynharaf yn y baban; • swyddogaeth delwedd symbolaidd a’r ffyrdd y gall chwarae dychmygus a’r celfyddydau creadigol gyfrannu at feddwl creadigol a throsiadol ym mhob agwedd ar ddysgu plentyn;
• swyddogaeth gallu cerddorol pobl mewn cefnogi tair agwedd hanfodol bwysig ar greadigedd a dychymyg sef awydd i chwarae, cyfathrebu ac emosiwn; • defnyddio amrywiaeth o ddelweddau symbolaidd, gan gynnwys chwarae, fel arfau meddwl;
• damcaniaethau cyfoes sy’n ymwneud â chreadigedd a’r dychymyg mewn perthynas â dysgu plant bach; • goblygiadau’r damcaniaethau hyn ar gyfer ymarfer proffesiynol gyda phlant bach; • ymarfer cadarn sy’n hyrwyddo creadigedd a’r dychymyg, megis gwaith yn Reggio Emilia.
