Tomorrow’s architects and engineers: They are hammering and sawing in today’s classroom!
Recently, in King’s Oak we introduced Woodworking sessions for children from Year 2 to Year 4. Children are excited to use real saws, hammers, hand drills, nails, screwdrivers, sand paper and pliers. They understood the importance of safety and they are always careful when designing their projects and working together. While working with wood, our children develop fine and gross motor skills and hand-eye coordination. They discover mathematical thinking (measurement, size, shape, and geometry), engineering skills and creativity. Every project requires focus and perseverance, so at the end we can hear “I did it! I really like this!”(Idan-Year 4).They grow emotionally and socially through self-confidence, appreciation for self and others, responsibility and respect for materials. They resolve problems and learn from mistakes and were extremely proud of their work.
