Brickworks

Discover the importance of imaginative play through design, construction and creativity

RECOMMENDED FOR FOUNDATION - GRADE 6

Our Brickworks incursion incorporates design, construction challenges and sharing.

Discover the benefits of imaginative play through design, construction and creativity with our large collection of Lego. Communicating in teams, students will complete construction challenges in this STEM incursion.  The end result... the creation of their own town!

This is an abstract way of understanding the elements of a community.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

The incursion today engaged even the most disinterested students and was enjoyed by all participants. I will definitely be including mindfulness and meditation into my classroom practice after today!

Brilliant! Brent's approach was very child centred and the content of the incursion fitted perfectly with our program content. Brent and his assistants really engaged with our students and took the time to explore movement with them in each of the toy play stations. Thank you!

We have a couple of high energy children who were completely engaged in all of the activities. They were open ended and engaging for all abilities and interests. Everything was wonderful - I have recommended you to all of our staff. Thanks!

All the students were all definitely engaged and also learnt many science facts as well. It was all handled very professionally and teachers were able to just observe without having to intervene or having to run experiments.

The Prep children had a fantastic session with the variety of toys. Their interaction reinforced the learning areas we were working through, such as movement, materials, texture and so on.
Thank you for an enjoyable and worthwhile session.
