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 “Water” and is the starting point for our learning across the connected curriculum. We’re going to be exploring some wonderful books during our book fortnight (no spoilers!) and drawing on our watery theme all through our learning. Please find the link to our home learning challenge to the right of this page. It is really important that all the children read daily at home, practise their spellings (again, their spelling lists are to the right of this page) and they need to become fluent in the rapid recall of the 2x, 5x and 10x tables.
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!
