The children used their imaginations and created some amazing designs with the shapes using the hammer and tack set. They showed a lot of focus and patience working methodically creating their designs. They socialised and chatted with each other sharing their ideas on what they were creating. It is developing their mathematical awareness as they use the different shapes to create symmetry within their designs. Hammering the tacks in also requires good hand-eye co-ordination and control holding the tack with one hand while hammering with the other hand. It is also building their confidence as once the masterpiece is finished they are very proud of their achievement as they explain to their peers what they have designed.
