Studies have shown that 80 percent of future jobs will require science, technology and math skills. Summerhill Nursery School has the pleasure to assist this growth through the implementation of LEGO Education.
LEGO Education is a more serious branch of the LEGO enterprise, which aims to provide teachers with a fun way to engage children in STEAM subjects. (STEAM stands for Science, technology, engineering and maths.) Steam is an educational approach to learning that uses science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
Summerhill Nursery school’s LEGO Education program has commenced, with our Lego trained facilitator Rosa Adonis, who through an age-appropriate curriculum, will lay the foundation for coding, robotics and engineering.
We have started implementing the following LEGO Educational sets into our academic programme:

Steam Park

Ages 3-5
While constructing a Theme Park full of dynamic rides, fun games and scenes using a special selection of LEGO DUPLO bricks, students expand their understanding of gears, motion, measurement, and problem solving in a fun and engaging way.

Early Simple Machines

Ages 4-5
This set has all the gears, levers, pulleys, wheels, wings and more that the students need to explore real world science concepts, sparking engaged learning. Problem solving skills, energy, creativity and critical thinking.

Coding Express Train

Age 5+
Basic language of coding combining digital and physical elements and coding concepts like looping, sequencing and conditional coding

We hope to inspire every student to channel their natural curiosity!
