Y6 Bridge Building in Lego

Year 6 took part in a DT workshop led by world recording holding company, Bright Bricks. With over 56,000 Lego bricks to play with, year 6 (along with the teachers) were in Lego building heaven. Teams of 4 were challenged with four building challenges throughout the day, each one relying on planning, construction and team work to make it successful. After instruction and guidance from our experts, including recapping the criteria of a ‘bridge’, each team went off to plan. It was a race to create the longest bridge. Then came the individual build – the tallest tower, which had to stand up to the poke test. 10 minutes to build went extremely quickly, with impressive results, with sturdy towers reaching 1 metre high. The afternoon focussed on the final team challenge. Teams had to show their understanding and experience from the day, to build the tallest, strongest and longest bridge.  The results of their learning showed in the children’s attitudes and final outcomes; they had acted on the advice and had clearly learned from their mistakes throughout the day. “I wish everyday could be a Lego day,” was a comment agreed with by all. “I actually can work as a team.” – yes, you can!
