A warm welcome to Year 2’s class page!
We are proud to be named after one of Wales’ most beautiful mountains, located in the south of the Snowdonia National Park. Its name is one that is steeped in folklore and means Idris’ Chair. The giant, Idris, lived in peace and harmony with nature on the mountain until another giant claimed the mountain for himself. In the battle that followed, Idris took the mountain back and continued to protect the wildlife and beauty of the mountain.
As well as seat, ‘cadair’ also means fort or stronghold. It is also said that those who sleep on the mountain will either wake to be great story-teller and poets, or mad! I aim that Year 2 will be the former by the end of an exciting year.
To the right of this page, you’ll find some general information about our class; please visit our page regularly for the most up-to-date news about our learning.
This term, our theme is “Earth” and is the starting point for our learning across the connected curriculum. Our new book this term is “Around The World In Eighty Days”. Over the coming weeks, as we head towards Christmas, we will be following Phileas Fogg and Passepartout and their many adventures around the globe. We will be discovering styles and art and artists from the many countries they travel to, as well as making links with our connected curriculum. Please continue to visit our page as I will try to upload as many pieces of our work as I can.
As always, please come in to see me in the morning or after school if you need to keep me in touch with anything relating to your child.
In the meantime, we look forward to a great year full of learning and fun!
