History

At Sandown, our aim is to bring History alive through the use of artefacts and a range of trips and visitors. We are privileged to have a subscription to the library Museum Service which enables us to provide children with the opportunity to see and handle genuine original historical artefacts and high quality replicas. We are also developing a close link with Hastings Museum which runs some excellent workshops about the History of our town. Year 4 were fortunate enough to have some very special visitors who brought Ancient Egypt to Sandown. You can see how much fun was had by all in the pictures below:

Year 2 pupils have been learning about the Fire Of London. The weather allowed us to  set fire to some model houses that we made to see how quickly a fire spreads. Luckily Mr. Lawrence the caretaker was on hand to keep everyone safe.
