Building models using construction resources

This week nursery children have been using their imagination to build models. Children have been confident to build independently and in groups. Building using a range of construction resources improves development in all areas. It requires fine and gross motor skills. Building models enhance children’s imagination, problem-solving abilities, mathematics skills, and language and literacy abilities.

 

Here’s what some children said:

 

Luka- “We are building a fire station. The fire truck parks inside.”

 

Terrell- “We are building a tower together. We are making the blocks balance.”

 

Xiran- “I like building. I want to make my house.”

 

Andrei- “I made the park and my nursery.”
