Tinkering Tray

The Grasshoppers explored some risky play in the form of a tinkering tray. 

They talked about the equipment first and how to use it safely. 

They talked about the risks and Chloe recorded them on a risk assessment form. 

They used hand eye co-ordination to use small screwdrivers to screw in screws and bolts. 

Fine motor skills were explored as the children used the range of tools such as screwdrivers and tweezers to manipulate screws into hardboard and cork-boards. 

The children showed high levels of concentration as they took part in the task. 

They also were excited to be trusted with the 'adult resources'. 

Well done Grasshoppers!
