We are pleased to announce the Lego Club is back this year in St. Audoen’s! Not only is creating with bricks a fun and exciting activity for all children, building with Lego is a great way to develop children’s imagination and improves their problem solving skills.
The club is open to all students from 1st to 6th Class. However spaces are limited to 12 children and spaces will be given on a ‘first come first served basis’ .
When: 2.45 – 3.30 every Wednesday.
Where: Ms. Kelly’s Room, St. Audoen’s NS
Children attending the After-School Club will return to club at 3.30 and all other children will be collected at gate. We are looking forward to seeing some amazing Lego masterpieces and entering Lego Competitions later on in the year!
If you are considering buying your child a new toy – seriously consider Lego! Here’s why:
Lego really encourages creativity and a child’s imagination..
Lego is immensely versatile. Buy a single set and you will be able to make stacks of different models. Where one day you are making a castle, the next you can make a space station, and then take things apart and start all over again.
Lego is educational; it teaches simple mechanics and engineering. It could even influence your child’s future career! Amazing! Lego can also teach us basic robotics and programming.
Lego is accessible to anyone and everyone. Anybody can pick up a Lego brick and stick it to another Lego brick. Lots of people can follow Lego instructions, which is good training but that said lots of people are able to design their own models and have them reach as high a standard as you like.
Lego is very much a family and friend activity. Being able to buy a toy like this and then build it together is great fun. Our students love our Lego Club – we hope to expand it this coming year.
