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~:

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:

Lily a child from the school approached us to ask if she could do some fundraising for us, we happily accepted and on her own she is arranging a cake sale to take place over the next few weeks to raise money for the Pre -School. Lily has arranged the sale, apprached the setting and now busy preparing what she would like to bake to be able to sell the parents and children at the end of the sessions next week. Well done Lily we are very proud of you!!!! If you would like to come and support her fundraising then Lily will be selling cakes in the Pre -School from 2:50pm on Monday 11th November.

Term 2 - Week 1: 28th October -1st November 

This week our topic saw us focus on our planet and how we can help save it by thinking about recycling and the plastics that we use. We explored many avenues during the week and we even made our own recycling station that we can use for our pre school resources. We explored the book somebody swallowed Stanley which was a fantastic resource to educate the children on the danger of plastic pollution on sea life. As part of this weeks topic we also took a trip to the park to do a litter pick, it was great on our intial safety visit as staff to see that actully the park was clear of all litter, so Rachel went ahead of the children and used some of the materials that we had collected in our recycling center to lay out so we could teach the children the importance of picking up litter, and keeping the environment clean for others. Below you can see some photos of the children clearing up the very messy park. The children were very keen to tell their parents about their experience and it provided meaningful discussion long after the activity was over.

September 26th 2019:

Today we had Kerry Pinnegar who is a COOP member pioneer come to visit the setting she wanted to see and learn about what we do in the local community. We had the pleasure of showing her around the setting and she got the opportunity to see the children in play , we have applied for a grant from the COOP to go towards the setting being able to have more groups into the setting to support the learning and development of our children. I will keep you all updated on the grant process and how we get on.
