Nursery learn to use tools safely

Dec 5, 2022Early Years, Physical Education

Nursery have taken an interest in tools and pumpkins. Recently, we have been learning to develop our fine motor skills as well as support our hand eye coordination. By doing this activity we were able to think about how much pressure we needed to apply when using the hammers and mallets. Importantly, we talked and learned about using tools safely so that no one was hurt. We used words such as hammer, mallet, hit, hard, soft, gentle and so much more! Our next steps are to use other tools such as real nails, nuts and bolts and we can’t wait!
