- Keeping tools organised provides opportunities for children to match and categorise objects.
- A child is following a plan he has drawn for something he intends to make out of wood. He is matching his 2D representations to 3D shapes.
- Children's experiences of PSRN are embedded in real world activities. Using real tools and woodwork engages children in serious tasks in which they can apply themselves with great motivation and persistence.
Woodwork is another form of construction or modelling and involves sorting, matching and categorising different sizes, shapes and types of wood and tools, and making decisions about 'how many' and 'where'.
