On 18th September, all of KS2 took part in the amazing Lego Community Builders Workshop run by Stephen Pilling.
The focus of the Community Builders workshop is to teach pupils about the importance of living in our British community. Using LEGO® bricks they were asked to build a community which showed our national identity by building different types of homes, places of worship, sustainable development; it had to reflect our values and customs and show how they can support others. As well as this, pupils were challenged to be inclusive of others through mutual respect by team building.
Church Vale pupils learnt how communities grow, change and evolve and focused them on the wider world.
They focused on how their community helps others and compared this to other
students work to see who has helped local citizens.
The children had a wonderful time and created thoughtful and sustainable communities. Some children were so inspired they have even continued this at break times in the following weeks!
