Our class has been named after Gelert.
Gelert is a legendary dog associated with the village of Beddgelert (whose name means “Gelert’s Grave”) in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. Here, the dog is alleged to have belonged to Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Gwynedd, a gift from King John of England. In this legend, Llywelyn returns from hunting to find his baby missing, the cradle overturned, and Gelert with a blood-smeared mouth. Believing the dog had savaged the child, Llywelyn draws his sword and kills Gelert. After the dog’s dying yelp Llywelyn hears the cries of the baby, unharmed under the cradle, along with a dead wolf which had attacked the child and been killed by Gelert. Llywelyn is overcome with remorse and buries the dog with great ceremony, but can still hear its dying yelp. After that day Llywelyn never smiles again. (Source – Wikipedia)

Our topic this year is Heroes and Villains. We will be talking about our heroes, and the powers that superheroes have so that we can design our own. We will then be making a cloak for our superheroes!
Ein thema y tymor yma yw Arwyr a Dihirod. Byddwn yn trafod ein arwyr, ac yn meddwl am bwerau archarwyr er mwyn cynllunio un ein hunain. Byddwn wedyn yn creu clogyn ar gyfer ein archarwr!
