We are delighted that the Acrylic Block Set is a 2016 Practical Pre-School Silver Award WINNER and Nursery World Awards FINALIST!

2016 Nursery World Awards Finalist

A set of 25 polished translucent acrylic blocks with a plane mirror, work cards and teacher’s notes included. The smooth colourful tactile blocks are designed to enable children to build patterns and sequences as well as create imaginative pictures:

- Regular polygons to help with mathematical language and the understanding of shapes and forms (square, triangle, oblong, circle, ellipse)
- Irregular shapes to enable more complex pictures to be made and to encourage a rich diversity of language such as wave, zigzag, arch, bridge etc
- Plane mirror for children to build patterns and see the effects of reflective symmetry
- Coloured and clear blocks so children can see the world in a different hue, overlay them to mix new colour combinations and use them on a light panel
- 15 pupil work cards from simple ideas to more complex challenges. There are pictures to copy in 2D or 3D, shape sequences to solve and ideas for reflective symmetry work.
- Teacher’s guide including background information, suggested activities to try, questions to ask the children and extension ideas. 

The Acrylic Block Set comes in a robust card box with key guide for the easy return of pieces and foam inserts to protect and store the blocks safely.
