This is one the children won't forget . . . guaranteed!
What if I told you, we have the perfect incursion for you?
We are Little Woodworkers®
We facilitate exclusive fun and engaging woodwork incursions for preschool and primary school children in Melbourne. The children make their own quality wooden toy and learn about environmental sustainability in a unique and memorable way.
We cater for pre-school & primary school children (up to Grade 6)
Our woodwork incursions ● fulfill the Learning Outcomes of the EYLF.
● tie in well with the STEM/STEAM inquiry units ● impart an important sustainability message so that the children make the connection between their environment and every day wooden items.
● have the potential for follow-up lessons/activities.
● ensure the children remember this experience for a long time.
With our incursions the children will
● extend & enrich their learning
● receive a positive sustainability message & understand it
● broaden their knowledge base
● develop & encourage fine motor skills
● create positive & lasting memories
What you can expect
Each incursion starts with a Safety Talk and the children try on safety spectacles.
The 4-year old groups & primary school students then enjoy a mat-time talk with a fun engaging demonstration (with cute props) about the importance of trees in sustaining our environment.
The children love it and more importantly ... they GET it.
All children within one group work on the same project. This way each child can easily follow Jim's demonstration. He'll explain and demonstrate each process clearly and facilitate the children where needed.
Then the "serious" woodworking begins.
Each child makes (and takes home) her/his own proper wooden toy. Jim asks leading questions to help guide them through their own creative process.
If that's not enough,
each child then gets even more creative in their own individual UNSTRUCTURED way with our creative box of random wooden shapes, blocksand dowels.
This often leads to some very surprising results!
Last but not least
Jim and I sat together and spent hours (days actually) tailoring the EYLF Learning Outcomes to our Little Woodworkers® incursions to show you the benefits. So, please take advantage of them. They're also perfect for the children's portfolios or school reports (after the incursion).
