EYFS woodwork

This week, we have introduced woodwork to Dexter class and, as you can imagine, it has been a big hit. There are a huge number of benefits to woodwork in the Early Years which span the different areas of learning. Children use their literacy skills to write and draw a plan of what they want to make, they follow safety instructions and become aware of taking safety measures and managing risk, they use maths to measure, count and estimate, they think critically about why and how things work and what might need to be altered in order to improve, they develop language skills when explaining their designs and the functionality of their creations, they improve concentration and refine fine motor skills, and increase their levels of self esteem and confidence through the satisfaction of their finished product (and that's just for starters!)

Watch out world... there is a class full of engineers, designers and crafters heading your way!
