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 “Fire” and is the starting point for our learning across the connected curriculum. Our class text is “The Story of the Great Fire of London” and we are already learning about William Turner’s experiences of the fire, as well as interesting facts about Samuel Pepys. Did you know that he hid Parmesan cheese in a hole in his garden?! Perhaps you can find out why! Try out the Great Fire of London game on the link to the side of this page. Further links will be added as the term progresses. 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, Happy New Year!
