This is a hands-on class where students build buildings, vehicles and other structures out of LEGO Bricks. Each class begins with a student-led discussion related to the model of the day. Students build a new structure each week. While exploring principles of engineering, architecture, and physics, students develop problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Lessons are designed around students’ interests with themes such as animals, space, transportation and sports. Children work in pairs thus fostering teamwork and cooperation. By completing a new project each week children also build their self-esteem.
The material covered and projects undertaken vary according to age. Pre-School children will use Lego Duplo Bricks to build various types of objects. Some of the themes are: Fun at the farm; Things around the house; Famous places; A trip to the zoo; Water, water, everywhere.
Children in Grades 1-6 will use Bricks4Kids Project Kits to work on various themes such as: Air, Land and Sea; Energy; Forces of Nature; Interesting Inventions; Laws of Motion; Life Science; Architecture. Children aged 8 and above will also be able to work on robotics projects.
Private piano, guitar or music theory lessons will be provided by Florentia Savva’s School of Music. With 28 years of experience, Mrs. Savva’s School of Music has successfully prepared students for Greek and English music exams including the Royal Schools of Music (London) and Trinity College.
Children will have the opportunity to play different games each week including:
• bean bag (cornhole),
• ring toss,
• kick darts game using soft balls and large Velcro blow-up dart board
