Have you wondered how best to introduce woodworking to Early Years? Join us as Peter Moorhouse guides us through this topic.
Pete will talk about the value of woodwork, drawing upon evidence from the Big Bang Research project. He will highlight how woodwork is a truly holistic activity with the potential to embrace all areas of learning, especially personal development and creative and critical thinking. Guidance will be provided on how best to introduce woodwork safely with information on the recommended tools and how to set up a woodwork area.
Pete Moorhouse has been successfully introducing woodwork to children in early years education for many years. He is a professional sculpture, public artist and artist educator, with 25 years’ experience of working in schools and early years settings. Pete is an associate trainer for Early Education and delivers continuous professional development (CPD) training and conference presentations. He has had books and journals published about creative woodwork with his most recent book being ‘Learning Through Woodwork’ published by Routledge.
