Our village 

Image result for our community

Being in a village location gives us a great opportunity to visit and embrace our local community. During your child's time at Teynham Community Pre -School they will get to know the village well and some friendly faces from around the village such as the priest, curch members, the local PCSO and of course school staff. 

We like to use our location to our advantage and enjoy taking learning outside to visit the train station, the farm at ISP, visiting the local shops for snack items and we have even visited the local chinese shop to sample some chinese food during our festivals topic. 

Below you will find photos of us exploring our community~:

Our village topic: Term 3 2020

On Friday 17th January the Pre -School children went on a trip to the train station so they could see the trains go past. We talked about safety when outside the setting and how to stay safe near a train line. The children did the setting proud. We are hoping to do our trips to the Co-op , a ride on the bus and a trip to the library all this week now the weather has improved a little. 

UPDATE: The weather has been kinder to us this week take alook at the photos below which will tell you all about what we have been up to in our village ..... 

We wrote letters and addressed them home we then visited the post box in the village to post them so we can see how long it takes to come back to us through the post.

This photo shows two of our children enjoying a bus ride around the village, unfortunatly due to the road works the bus didnt take the usual route so we are going to try again in a few weeks and go on a longer adventure.

We also visited our local co op, to buy the bread we needed for snack. We took our co op card with us as we are their charity of the year so for every one pound spent we get 1p back, dont forget to choose us as your charity.

14th November 2019

On the 14th November as part of our construction topic we took a trip into the village to see the building site that is currently building new houses. The builders were so accomodating and were keen to show us some of the machinery that they use on the site. They also come over so we could see what they have to wear while working to protect themselves and others on the site. The children were an assit to us on the trip they behaved beautifully and really showed the local resisdence how we behave when we are out of the setting. There are a few photos below:
