Naidheachdan bho ChLAS 10/2016

Naidheachdan bho Chomann Luchd-Teagaisg Luchd-Teagais

Aithisg Bhliadhnail a’ Chathraiche 2016clas

Feasgar math dhuibh uile agus fàilte gu Coinneamh Bhliadhnail Chomann Luchd-Teagaisg Àrd-Sgoiltean. Tha sinn air leth toilichte a bhith aig an Alltan a-rithist airson coinneachadh agus bu chaomh leam taing a thoirt gu Stòrlann airson an cuid fialaidheachd ann a bhith a’ cur rum air doigh dhuinn.
Tha sinn air a bhith an sàs gu soirbheachail ann an iomadh rud a-rithist am bliadhna. Tha an co-fharpais sgriobhaidh againn a’ dol bho neart gu neart le meudachadh anns an àireamh de sgoilearan a tha a’ gabhail pàirt.

Tha tidsearan air a bhith an sàs anns an sgeama treòrachaidh againn a-rithist am bliadhna, agus tha sinn air beachdan thidsearan a thogail gu làidir agus gu tric.

Chosg sinn latha as t-samhradh a’ cruthachadh fiolm gus CLAS a shanasachadh. Aig an aon àm fhuair sinn fhìn beagan a bharrachd eòlas air fiolmadh agus tha sinn an dòchas taic a thoirt do thidsearan no do sgoiltean eile, ann a bhith a’ dèanamh filmichean iad fhèin a bhiodh nan goireasan do thidsearan.

Bha CLAS air an riochdachadh aig coinneamh airson an e-sgoil ùr a tha gus fosgladh agus tha seo mar chomharra air cho taiceil sa tha CLAS a thaobh beachdan thidsearan.

Bu chaomh leam togail a-nochd air cho taiceil sa tha muinntir a’ chomataidh air a bhith tron bhliadhna mu dheireadh agus dha rìreabh tro iomadach bliadhna a chaidh seachad. Feumaidh sinn cuimhneachadh gu bheil CLAS air a ruith le tidsearan, airson tidsearan gus ar guthan a dhèanamh nas eifeachdaich. As aonais tidsearan a tha deònach pàirt a ghabhail, bhiodh an obair fada nas duilghe. Tha dithis on chomataidh ris a bheil mi airson taing sònraichte a thoirt seachad a-nochd air sgàths gu bheil iad a’ tighinn bhon a’ chomataidh am bliadhna. Tha Dòmhnall MacLeòid air a bhith ag obair leinn airson 4 bliadhna agus tha e air a bhith air leth taiceil anns an ùine sin le bheachdan, le ghliocais agus leis an eòlas teicneòlach aige. Ghabh e thairis am blog againn agus tha sin a-nis aig ìre far a bheil e na ghoireas agus na mheadhan buileach taiceil dhuinn. A-thuilleadh air Dòmhnall, tha mi airson taing sònraichte a thoirt do Steven Greumach a tha air a bhith na Ionmhasair air a’ chomataidh airson iomadh bliadhna thrang. Chan e Gàidhlig a bha Steven a’ teagasg aig a’ cheann thall ach Maths, ach bha obair a’ chomataidh air còrdadh ris a leithid ‘s gun do lean e air adhart leinn, gar cumail ceart agus a’ cumail suil air na sgillinnean fad bhliadhnaichean. ‘S e Steven a chur am blog againn air bhog anns a’ chiad àite mus do ghabh Dòmhnall ris. Tha iomadh sgil agus tàlant aig Steven a bhios sinn ag ionndrainn gu mòr nuair a dh’fhàgas e. Mar sin, tha mi airson taing oifigeil a thoirt dha Steven agus do Dhomhnaill a-nochd airson an obair a rinn iad còmhla rinn agus bidh sinn a’ guidhe a h-uile soirbheas dhan dithis aca anns na bliadhnaichean fada a tha romhpa.

Tha sin a’ fagail bearn no dhà air a’ chomataidh airson tidsearan ùra a thighinn nar cuideachd às a seo a-mach. Ged a tha beagan obair ann do dhaoine a bhios a’ gabhail pairt ann an comataidh, chan eil an obair gun tlachd agus gu dearbha fhèin tha e uabhasach tlachdmhor a’ cur barrachd eòlas air na tidsearan a bhios a’ frithealadh na coinneamhan. Mura biodh sin, cha bhithinn fhìn air leantainn ris cho fada! Tha mi mothachail gu-ta gu bheil beatha-sgoile aig tidsearan a’ fàs nas trainge gach latha agus tha e doirbh do chuid

faighinn às an sgoil gus tachartas mar an t-Alltan a fhrithealadh. Mar sin bu choir dhuinn ‘s dòcha barrachd oidhirp a dhèanamh ann a bhith a’ toirt cuireadh do thidsearan tighinn air a’ chomataidh on seo a-mach. Tha fios againn gun còrdadh e gu mòr ri tidsearan agus gum faigheadh iad a cheart uidhir à CLAS sa bhiodh iad a’ cur ris. ‘S e cothrom agus tlachd a th’ann a bhith mar phàirt de ChLAS agus tha mise glè thoilichte gu bheil mi mar phàirt dheth.

Mòran taing airson a bhith an seo còmhla rinn a-nochd.

Cathraiche, Comann Luchd-Teagaisg Àrd-sgoiltean.

Ceitidh Computer Voice

​Languages and Curriculum for Excellence Entitlements

For most children in Scotland, the learning of an additional language usually begins in primary school and in some cases earlier. With the implementation of the Scottish Government’s Language Learning in Scotland: a 1+2 approach means schools are already teaching an additional language from primary 1 and are working towards the introduction of a second language from primary 5.

1.1
Annotated exemplification of the early level in Gaelic Medium EducationBasic CMYK

This work forms a part of the Assessing Progress and Achievement professional learning resource and generally uses the Significant Aspects of Learning, identified in this resource, to guide exemplification.  Practitioners involved in this exercise have compiled examples of learners’ work and other evidence to show what they are able to do at the early level of literacy and Gàidhlig.  It is anticipated that this resource could be used by practitioners to provide a focus for professional dialogue.

1.2 The following learning resources are now published to support the senior phase:

 

  • National 3, 4, 5 and Higher Gàidhlig
  • National 3, 4, 5, Higher Gaelic (Learners)
  • National 4, 5, Higher GM mathematics
  • National 3, 4, 5 GM Lifeskills mathematics
  • National 3, 4, 5 and Higher GM geography
  • National 3, 4, 5 and Higher history
  • National 3, 4, 5 and Higher GM modern studies.

 

1.3 We are now focusing on producing some support materials for the Advanced Higher.  Schools and education authorities are invited to advise Education Scotland of the subjects that they are offering in the senior phase through the medium of Gaelic. Based on responses we will receive, we will translate learning materials that Education Scotland will be commissioning. Education Scotland acknowledges the co-operation of education authorities in sharing materials they themselves have produced for the new qualifications and are made available on our website.  Please also advise us of possible writers for support materials.

 

1.4 Route Maps for Higher now available: Education Scotland, in partnership with the SQA, has now published route maps for all Higher qualifications, providing a sequenced list of main messages and links to resources. These route maps have been produced in response to teacher requests for more streamlined and simplified guidance on delivering the new qualifications.

 

1.5 An Cogadh Mòr (1914-18)

Please visit the Education Scotland website for resources to support learning in Gaelic Medium Education about World War I. These resources include looking at the causes of the war, stories from veterans and reflections on the impact of the conflict.
