We offer a blended approach to training for Six Bricks, Play Box & LEGO System Bricks.  This includes aspects of hands-on learning, guided learning and self-study activities, and are delivered in both face to face and online workshops.

Three types of trainings are offered based on the resources provided.

Learning through Play with Play Box

The LEGO Foundation provides DUPLO Play Box (for younger children). This box provides joy and playful learning for vulnerable children all over the world and is integral to the work CFE is doing. 

Young children can’t wait to engage when they see the colourful assortment of bricks and elements.  As we know, children are naturally curious about their surroundings and for their learning to take place, they need to actively engage with their environment, not only through body movements but also through their senses. Children should be encouraged to explore, create, play and interact with others and their surroundings.

Benefits of using Play Box
 

Teacher-guided activities with the LEGO DUPLO elements help children to develop both physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.

The manipulation of concrete materials is essential to a young child’s concept development. The large elements in the DUPLO Play Box are the perfect size for young children to handle confidently and to develop perceptual skills in a real and playful manner. Playing with these elements allows the child to use their own imagination, build creative solutions to problems and make sense of their world around them.  This active learning stimulates the development of the whole child.

Learning through Play with Six Bricks

Six Bricks is a concept designed to excite and motivate young children in the classroom to attain the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for success in later life.

The Six Bricks activities are short, simple exercises or games designed to wake up the brain and get the child moving, thinking and remembering. They are not intended to be a curriculum, but they do support all areas of development in the curriculum.

Every child has a set of six 2x4 stud bricks, one of each colour, on his / her desk or readily available throughout each school day. The teacher can then easily facilitate any activity at any time. Repetition brings about better organization of the brain and the secret of the success of these activities lies in their regular repetition which will enable children to consolidate new knowledge

In order to grasp concepts, children must be given time to manipulate concrete tools. They need opportunities to use their whole body to explore and aid their development of ideas, curiosity and imagination.

Learning through Play with LEGO ABC

LEGO System Bricks (for older children) . LEGO System Bricks elements differ in each box and generally there is a mix of technic and LEGO elements.

CFE uses the LEGO Foundation’s Learning through Play methodology in all our training sessions.  We teach and use the five characteristics of play as well as the holistic skills as researched and adopted by the LEGO Foundation.
