Altrincham Preparatory School 2

The boys in Years 1 & 6 teamed up to build Manchester out of Lego. Together they used their knowledge, imagination and creativity to plan, design and construct houses, offices, roads, canals, parks, football stadiums, cars, boats, aeroplanes, Manchester Airport and even Media City. The end result was superb.

Howard Junior School School

Youngsters at Howard Junior School let their imaginations run wild and showed off their skills as they worked together to construct a giant Lego city on Wednesday. The team-building exercise is held annually at the school and both staff and pupils look forward to it each year. Assistant headteacher Jason Harper said: "The children absolutely loved it. They get so excited about it each year because it gives them a chance to express themselves by building things. The adults get just as excited as the kids and we're all in there as well trying to build things, but it's great to see the smiles of the childrens' faces."

Monkton Combe School

The children's excitement could barely be contained last weekend as crates of Lego entered the hall ready for a fantastic Lego building morning. Both Monkton pupils and visitors to the school enjoyed a morning of Lego construction, working together to create a Lego city. Every child started with the task of building a house and then after that their imaginations took over. Working in teams the children built their very own Lego city, which included theatres, a pyramid, houses of every type and description, plenty of swimming pools and so much more. It was amazing just how big the city was considering it was constructed in just one morning, and the extremely high level of detail the children had thought of in their construction. This amazing day combined teamwork, imagination and plenty of dexterity. Each child left asking when the next Lego building day will be.

Lego Day! A Lego expert came to our school on Wednesday. He showed us how to make Lego houses then we put them into a city. In our city we had trains, houses, a football pitch, an ice cream factory, lots of police vans and a jail. Harris even made a cat!

Altrincham Preparatory School

Year 1 and Year 6 joined forces to design and create their very own Lego Sport City complete with running tracks, swimming pools and a moving monorail. This task saw the Year 1 and Year 6 boys working collaboratively in small teams encouraging team work, discussion and friendship. We think that the design was good enough to challenge the Olympic Park!

Longwell Green Primary School

On Wednesday 21st January Longwell Green Primary School Years 4 and 5 took part in the Lego Experience. Two visitors came to school and brought tons of Lego to make an eco Lego village.

We were taught how to make a basic building, including the roof structure and the brick pattern. We got into groups on mats and started to create our own buildings to add to the village. Once we had created our buildings we got creative and added extra features e.g. sheds, ponds and gardens.

Some groups made other models such as stadiums, post offices, parks and horse jumps. We all enjoyed our experience.



Craigour Park Primary School

On Tuesday a man came to our school with lots and lots of lego. We all had to build a house and a back garden out of lego. Then we got to choose anything we wanted for our second build. We had to work cooperatively with each other and we all did this really well.
