This ready-made Sand Resource Collection 5-7yrs maximises opportunities for sand play as an open-ended resource. Support the development of problem solving skills, investigative thinking and imaginative play with this curated set of resources.
Featuring plastic measuring jugs, metal and wooden sand tools, natural materials, play trays and small world resources, this comprehensive set is sure to engage KS1 children. The traditional equipment in this set will support mathematical and scientific thinking as children extend their knowledge of similarity and difference, shape and space, speed and flow, force and direction. The mix of utensils are wonderful to use to make a range of impressions in sand, encouraging children to describe materials properties, whilst the mini small world animal sets and natural materials extend children's story telling skills.
As a highly sensory resource which sustains children’s interest for long periods of time, sand offers many opportunities for learning maths, science and new language as the properties of sand are observed in its wet and dry form. Encourage children to explore known materials, make links and act out experiences as well as explore shape, space and quantity with this essential provision area.
