Hooley Dooley! What an exciting day!
Our day today began with a very exciting bus trip into the city to docklands. We were super excited when we saw all of the very tall buildings. When we arrived at docklands we found our way into the Lego Education Centre.
Our first activity explored the way gears, levers and pulleys are used to make moving toys. We got to create 3 very exciting toys – a jack in the box, a spinning top and a spinning wheel. We worked very well with our partner to create our toys, so well in fact that we had spare time at the end to create our very own toy using a range of Lego materials.
For our second activity we had to make a house that was strong enough to stop the big bad wolf from getting one of the little pigs. We were learning about overlapping and the techniques needed to make a strong house. We worked as a team to build a house. Two teams were able to stop the big bad wolf from getting in!
For our final activity we were learning about animals and the different kinds of habitats that they live in. We had to construct their habitats using Lego. We also had the chance to use life-size Lego blocks to create a creature or animals with.
We had a really fun day and learnt lots about constructing toys. We would like send out a big thank you to the helpers for helping to make the day run smoothly.
Check out all the pictures Miss McIntyre took – she went a bit crazy on the camera!
