After School Enrichment Classes
Our one hour classes explore architecture, science, engineering and technology concepts using LEGO® bricks. Students participate in 6 week sessions focused on exciting themes including Space, Inventions, Famous Buildings, and Natural Disasters. Classes follow the Bricks 4 Kidz® motto: We Learn, We Build, We Play with… LEGO® Bricks!
Instructional content includes concepts of friction, gravity and torque, scale, gears, axles and beams. The material covered in each session will vary depending on students’ ages, experience, and skill level.
All material will be provided. For girls and boys Yr1 – Yr6.
- We Learn– Teachers provide a 5-10 minute themed lesson
- We Build– Students build the model of the day with simple step by step instructions
- We Play– Students explore their own creativity through free play time
Reinforce science, technology, engineering and maths concepts
Develop an appreciation for how things work
Build self-confidence and problem-solving skills
Foster teamwork and collaboration
Provide a safe, enriching environment to create and play

CURRICULUM & INSTRUCTIONAL CONTENT
Students will work in a lab-type setting using LEGO® bricks with an integrated curriculum based on maths, science and engineering.
For children to play and socialise with friends while learning fundamentals of engineering and architecture in a non-competitive setting. To further develop problem-solving skills, provide an opportunity for creative expression and foster an appreciation of how things work.
Kids already know how to build with LEGO® bricks, but with a little coaching they can learn engineering, architecture and concepts of physics and mathematics using the plastic components. Students will develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
Handouts are given to take home each week to show parents what they’ve learned. As well as building very cool motorised models step by step and playing with a huge amount of LEGO® for creative free play building.
Each child builds their own LEGO® mini-figure to play with each week and take home on the last week, which they LOVE !!
We learn, we build, we play with LEGO® Bricks
