Nails and Hammers!
Today in the Oak Room, the children were engaging with the real hammers and nails. The school has real materials for the children so that it draws the children in and actually gives children the chance to experience what it is actually like working with those materials. The children enjoy having these materials there for them. It also allows the children to practice the safety rules of the real materials.
