Autumn 2023

Autumn 2

Well, what a busy term we have had! 
Just look at all the learning that’s been going on! ……..

Our Topic ‘Cynefin’ 

We have been learning about human and physical features. We looked at a photograph of our area that was 123 years old! We were able to identify the human and physical properties and make comparisons between Penclawdd 123 years ago and today! We also used local maps to help us find OS symbols and created a key of our own .
