Cynefin

Exploring your local area - Resources

Often translated as habitat, but in fact encompassing so much more, this Welsh word is now a core concept in the New Curriculum for Wales. Pupils in Wales, in Pembrokeshire, will build their learning about the humanities through exploring their own area.

Cynefin is not just a place in a physical or geographical sense. It is a historic, cultural and social place which has shaped and continues to shape the community which inhabits it.

Cynefin is the place where we feel we belong, where the people and landscape around us are familiar and the sights and sounds are reassuringly recognisable.

Pembrokeshire has a wealth of opportunities for pupils exploring Cynefin. Indeed, many of them amongst the special qualities protected by the National Park. Our Schools Programme, delivered by Rangers and Centres is eager to provide formative learning experiences for pupils and adapt to schools creating and investigating new topics.

This page aims to provide links to resources to help teachers and pupils on their journey.
