Brickies Education – School Workshops

At Brickies, we specialise in delivering immersive brick building school workshops, utilising LEGO elements to engage and inspire children. We carefully design every educational workshop to ignite creativity and facilitate hands-on learning.

Our school workshops start with captivating visual presentations and are specifically tailored to the chosen curriculum topic. As a result, this sets the stage for an interactive learning experience. Under the guidance of our experienced facilitators, children embark on LEGO building challenges directly linked to the topic. We encourage free exploration and imaginative thinking rather than instruction led building.

We actively support the children throughout the workshop, offering ideas and suggestions, whilst providing plenty of positive reinforcement. Our ultimate goal is to empower every child to unleash their creativity and unlock their potential through the joy of LEGO building.

Our school workshops go beyond LEGO play. We provide hands-on learning adventures that make education fun and creative. All children, including struggling learners, enthusiastically engage in the activity, amazing teachers in the process.

Thank YOU for a fantastic morning! Very well organised and you went above and beyond to tailor it to our learning – we will be recommending you again. The children enjoyed the morning so much and couldn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the day so thank you!

    School Workshops FAQs

    We deliver LEGO building school workshops that are suitable for all ages from Early Years to School Leavers. We primarily work with primary school aged children, those in EYFS, KS1, KS2 and SEND.

    We deliver LEGO School Workshops that are typically 60 – 75 minutes long. The duration is subject to change depending on the type of workshop we are delivering. If delivering to 4 or less classes in one day we recommend 75 minutes where possible. We are often asked to work with a whole school in one day, to achieve this we reduce down the sessions times to 30 – 45 minutes to ensure we can work with all children. Additionally, we can schedule our timings to coincide with school break times and lunch breaks.

    We pride ourselves on offering competitively priced school workshops as we understand the budget restraints schools are working with. The cost is dependant on the type of workshop you choose and how many classes you would like to participate. We also have to factor in travel time from our base in Wokingham. For pricing please complete the contact form above or email us on [email protected]

    We finalise a booking with the school, then we will send you an invoice that can be paid via BACs. We request that the invoice is paid within 7 days of the event delivery date.

    We are based in Wokingham, Berkshire and although our immediate focus is working within Berkshire, Surrey and Hampshire we do travel to London, surrounding areas and across the South. Occasionally we work outside these areas so please do still enquire as we are flexible on travel.

    We work with as little as one class having a LEGO school workshop to a four form entry school delivering to all classes and anywhere in-between. If you let us know how many classes you would like to participate in an activity we will propose a timetable based on that number. We can also tailor the content of each workshop to reflect a learning topic that the class is learning about.

    We are very flexible as to where we deliver the LEGO school workshop. Typically we work in the classroom as all we need is access to tables to put the LEGO on and access to a screen is desirable. The room would need to be big enough for the number of children participating. We like to set a maximum of approx 30 on each workshop although we can work with larger groups if you have a space and tables that can accommodate.

    We only take 5 – 10 minutes to set up a LEGO school workshop and the same again to tidy it away.

    We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive experience during our LEGO building workshops. The beauty of LEGO building is that you can build independently and to your own skills and pace. We work with a number of SEND children and even if they struggle to complete the building challenge they often enjoy the sensory experience of the colours, shapes and bricks. We are experienced in working with a wide range of children and will accommodate to ensure everyone is included.

    We offer a wide number of topics for our LEGO Building Workshops, these can be viewed on the Early Years, KS1 and KS2 pages of our website. We also create bespoke themes if a class or school want to link it to something specific. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will do our best to link it in.

    We ensure that all our Facilitators are enhanced DBS checked and will present their certificate and photo ID on arrival to the school. We can email proof of these in advance if required along with up to date safeguarding training certificates.

    Yes, we have a risk assessment we can send you in advance of our school workshop visit. We also have the required Public Liability Insurance and Employee Liability Insurance in place, evidence of these can be provided.

    The Importance of Learning Through Play

    We believe in today’s educational landscape, the significance of learning through play in the classroom cannot be overstated. Research, including studies conducted by the LEGO Foundation and partners over the past five years, underscores the profound impact of play on educational outcomes. As highlighted by Zosh et al. (2017), play becomes truly educational when it encompasses elements of joy, meaning, active engagement, iteration, and social interaction.

    We wholeheartedly embrace this philosophy. Our school workshops are meticulously designed to harness the power of play as a vehicle for learning. By fostering an environment where creativity flourishes, boundaries are pushed, and exploration is celebrated. We empower students to become active participants in their own education. Through hands-on experiences with LEGO elements, our school workshops not only make learning fun but also cultivate essential skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. We strive for learning to become an adventure where every moment is an opportunity for growth and discovery.
