Working with real tools is highly motivating and one challenge that all children are keen to experience within this woodwork resource. When working with wood – whether hammering nails or building a vehicle – children persevere through the physical and creative challenges they encounter. 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 the tools 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.
