Beautifully coloured natural beechwood hollow blocks in 4 geometric shapes - squares, rectangles, triangles and arches. Each group of shapes contains 7 graduated sizes for nesting, in the 7 colours of the rainbow. The inner block in each group is a solid 3D shape.

 

This wide-ranging enabling resource will provide endless possibilities for creativity, construction and imaginative play, engaging children in learning across several areas of the curriculum: using innovation and creativity to build towers, houses or freeform sculptures; using the imagination to design rooms for filling with small world play people or animals; applying mathematical logic to sort counters into the shapes which match by colour, shape or size; learning the geometric properties of common shapes; exploring size and scale; using mathematical terms - larger, smaller, taller, wider etc; and for improving language skills and broadening descriptive vocabulary.
