Complete Block Area
Working with blocks supports the continued development of fine motor skills – hand-eye co-ordination and spatial awareness as well as encouraging creative thinking and problem solving that require good communication and social skills. Through their natural desire to explore objects, children soon become confident in handling the blocks, placing and combining them in many different ways. Our Complete Block Area will inspire young children to be adventurous, imaginative and creative – critical behaviors for effective learning. Mathematical skills and a strong understanding of 3D shapes, arrays and fractions for example –are also reinforced through the nature of the blocks and how they are arranged and labelled.
