The Apprentice Set is an 18-piece Play Builder Set, the smallest package that we offer. This pack is designed for smaller classes, giving pupils the ideal space to explore constructive play!

Crafted to replicate real-life construction and boost pupils’ understanding of the world, children will learn how to connect square blocks using mortise and tenon joints just like they do in real-life construction, to create a safe low-level active play space.

Children’s creativity will know no bounds as they discover how they can bring their imaginative ideas to life using their fine motor skills, such as grip and grasp, to build the designs. They can even test out their physical literacy skills, practising their balance along the planks and walking along different heights and inclines. Whether they choose to design a train, a plane or a castle, children will love seeing their designs come to life before them!

Children can discover their inner strength as they lift and move the planks into their desired arrangement, learning how to carry items safely and place them in a good position. In fact, this gives children the ideal opportunity to develop their positional and directional vocabulary.

Faced with challenges that they’ve never known before; pupils will develop key problem-solving skills as they craft their designs and build their ability to discover the most logical solutions. Will they choose to work as a team and build core turn-taking and communication skills or work alone and find their inner confidence and leadership skills? This is entirely up to them!
