SmartMax- Gymathstics Approved Toy of the term
Gymathstics is all about building, constructing, identifying, making connections and creating. We have integrated the Gymathstics Approved Toys into our programme so your children are exposed to more resources that promote the skills we need to help them develop.
Every term we will feature one of the toys which we use with your little ones during Gymathstics sessions.
This term is SmartMax Magentic Fun!
SmartMax offers maximum fun with magnets! With many different building and play sets available, SmartMax offers children the opportunity to learn and discover with magnetic building pieces, which attract and repel. The pieces are large, and welded together, so there’s no risk of the individual magnetic pieces falling apart.
• hand-eye coordination
• logical thinking
• colour recognition
• form recognition in 2D & 3D
• playing together
This term we build shapes using the SmartMax Set and kids learn about attraction and repulsion. The set features warm colours and cool colours and we teach them how these colours work. We also learn the properties of each shape we construct.
Magnets have a magnetic north and south pole. The cold colors, green, blue, purple and white have their north poles directed outwards. The warm colors, red, orange, yellow and pink have their south poles directed outwards.
These concepts develop thinking skills in your child and allows them to make sense of the world around them
If your child enjoys the SmartMax during their Gymathstics Session you can order your own set on the app or purchase online.
Gymathstics Approved Toys last a lifetime with endless learning possibilities.
