Mrs Churchill is your teacher.

Miss George will be helping out in class too.


This term our topic for learning is "Our Community"


This project has a History and Geography focus and teaches children about buildings, services and people who help us in the local community, To start our topic we will learn about Waun Wen by walking around the area, looking at the buildings and features. We will also learn about how the area has changed over time. We will visit Brynhyfryd Library and Brynhyfryd Post Office. We are looking forward to having some visiting speakers. Leading on from this we hope to explore the wider area of Swansea. Children will learn how to write information that they have learned about Swansea.

We will have daily handwriting practice to reinforce spelling. We will also be learning how to write an information text and a persuasive text which encourages people to visit Swansea.
