The Complete Dry Sand Area 4-5yrs provides such a range of possibilities for exploration and investigation that it can sustain children’s interest for long periods of time. Providing a selection of jugs, funnels and sieves, will support children’s mathematical and scientific thinking. A selection of small world resources changes the landscape to arid desert, construction site or the seaside.
Dry sand has a wonderful sensory quality and will capture and hold children’s attention for sustained periods of time. A selection of jugs, tubing and sieves encourages mathematical and scientific thinking. Combining dry sand with gravel makes a great base for real life scenes such as building sites with diggers or habitats for desert animals – rich opportunities for storytelling.
This ready-made Complete Dry Sand Area 4-5yrs enables children to develop a deep understanding of: Maths – buckets, scoops and rakes chosen in different sizes and shapes can be displayed to highlight similarities and differences to encourage children to order and compare. Science – the sand wheel, funnels, tubing and sieves provide a number of opportunities to investigate how sand moves and what effects its speed, flow and direction. Language – small world vehicles and people, snakes, desert animals and natural materials are also included for exploring scenarios, telling and re-telling stories.
