For our CCS community liaison, we partnered with Bricks 4 Kidz to deliver a project to the local primary school due to our ongoing construction project in the area.
They joined us to visit the Ballinderry primary school Year 5 class, where Bricks 4 Kidz delivered a 2 hour session to the pupils. They worked from a manual to build the model of the Eiffel Tower with Lego bricks. Once all pupils completed the project, they each received certificates for their efforts and as recognition.
Bricks 4 Kidz explore architecture, engineering, design and technology concepts of construction using Lego bricks, offering high quality education play to all primary classes, with each session teaching and incorporating an aspect of Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Maths (STEM Learning).
This gave the pupils an insight into how the world of construction works, from working from plans, drawings and designs, to physically building the prototype and utilising the build once construction has finished.
Others skills learnt was the importance of teamwork and delegating work, as the class worked in pairs to construct the models. This was a fantastic and positive introduction of the construction industry for young primary school pupils and we, Henry Brothers, were pleased to be part of it!
