Enhance Learning With LEGO
PUPIL ENRICHMENT DAY
These events offer teachers and students the opportunity to take part in a range of activities exploring how LEGO can be used to enhance learning in different areas of the curriculum including Computing, Engineering, Maths, Literacy and Science.
WHAT IS THE COST TO SCHOOLS?
FULL DAY ENRICHMENT: £700
Half-DAY ENRICHMENT: £400
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The “Enhance Learning With LEGO” Enrichment Day is designed for Key Stage 2-3 Pupils but can be adapted to suit other age groups.
The day is split into two workshops, morning and afternoon, (or a single workshop if selecting the half-day enrichment day) each lasting approximately 2.5 hours and covering the same content for two classes. Timings can be adjusted to suit school timetables.
Up to 30 students take part in each workshop (60 in total). A teacher is required to be present during the workshop plus any additional support staff as required. The hope is the teaching staff will gain experience and be able to re-deliver the workshop independently using the resources available.
The workshops are led by experienced Tablet Academy educators who will guide staff and students through the activity allowing pupils to learn and teachers to observe and learn as well. All equipment is provided excluding standard stationary (e.g. paper).
The “Enhance Learning With LEGO” Enrichment Days provide teachers with the opportunity to see how LEGO solutions can support all areas of the curriculum, not just computing and STEM, and students have the opportunity to learn and experience new technology.

The Duke Of York Inspiring Digital Entrepreneur Award
Pupils who attend the workshops will also be awarded a digital badge linked to the Duke of York iDEA scheme. This is a new programme still in its infancy which is comparable to the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The difference being the iDEA programme is based on digital skills. The badge awarded to pupils for attending the event contributes points towards achieving their Bronze award which they can do independently online.
