The children at John Bear’s Nursery are very excited to now be able to take part in woodwork using their work bench and real tools. Woodwork provides an opportunity to support many areas of learning and development and is an activity which children can really enjoy. The children are trained in the safety rules of the area in small groups and are then introduced to one tool at a time and trained in its use. They earn a star on their woodworker card when they have completed their training, independently used the tool and recalled the safety rules. They have already started creating some great models!
