To celebrate the engineering component of STEM, Year 1 and 2 visited Legoland last Friday. The children’s excitement was palpable as the coach drove through the entrance. The life-size Lego pieces bought so much joy and added to the excitement for the day ahead. The children spent the day exploring the park. They were fixated by the Lego models in ‘mini land’. This land consisted of all the most iconic buildings and landmarks worldwide constructed out of Lego. Children admired the intricacies of each model and enjoyed reading and learning about how each model was made and how long it took to complete- some over 500 hours!
Children loved the rides they went on too. Fun, thrilling, scary, exciting – all wrapped into one. Throughout the day children got the chance to improve their coding skills through a robotics workshop run by Rachael. They created their own Lego Ride and through coding, learnt to make it move, play music, light up and they even added their own pre-ride safety announcement.
“This was the best day ever” – exclaimed one pupil as we boarded the coach to return to school. It was a pleasure taking the children on this trip. To watch them having so much fun and learning new skills was wonderful to see.
