Discovery in the Early Years

At Sandown School our Reception children are always discovering new things and love a challenge! During term 1 we have been learning about ourselves, our families and where we live, comparing our town Deal to London, and we went for a ride on an old fashioned bus around the town. We also read the story ‘The Naughty Bus’ and recreated our own naughty vehicle stories through drama. We have retold the story with our friends and made puppet shows. We dressed up as our favourite London inspired characters. We have been exploring the Green Zone- our very own Forest School- looking for mini beasts, birds and berries and we visited Deal Castle to learn about Henry VIII. What a busy term!

Here are some pictures of our adventure so far at Sandown.

 Making great friendships is very important to us- Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

  Finding out and exploring is an important part of our characteristics of effective learning.
