Provide a variety of building resources and materials in the woodwork provision to motivate innovative designs and support critical thinking. This Set of Wheels are made from natural beech wood and feature real rubber treads. Use with wooden dowling to create cogs or as stabilizers for a vehicle, an ideal set to inspire young designers in the making!
Working with real tools and materials is highly motivating and one challenge that all children are keen to experience as they use this Set of Wheels. When working with wood‚ whether hammering nails or building a vehicle‚ children persevere through the physical and creative challenges they encounter.
Ensure your woodwork area offers lots of opportunities for creative expression and problem solving. Offering a good range of craft materials and real life tools in the woodwork provision will inspire young minds as they problem solve and critically think when designing and making models.
This Set of Wheels includes:
- Set of 16 wheels in 4 assorted sizes, featuring 4 small wheels 43mm x 20mm, 4 large tractor wheels 80mm x 30mm, 4 small truck wheels 64mm x 26mm and 4 large truck wheels 72mm x 26mm
- Suitable for age 3 and over
Please Note, for the Woodwork Provision: When providing this opportunity schools and settings MUST carefully assess children’s levels of competence and independence and judge the level of supervision that is required of children before any tools are made available to them. Make sure to introduce the woodwork resource collection carefully, setting high expectations for their use. It will be important to show children how to handle and use each tool safely so they can manage equipment independently. Once children are off to a good start, with on-going support and guidance, they will soon be able to use all the woodwork resource tools and equipment well.
Many of our resources are produced in a variety of colours and styles and may vary slightly from those shown, however we guarantee that you will always receive the same quality and value.
