Lego Six Bricks (Level 1 & 2) 1st & 2nd Feb 2023
LEGO® / DUPLO® in the classroom
Certified Online Level 1 and 2 Training Programme for Primary Teachers, SEN Staff, SNAs & Early Childhood Practitioners
Six Bricks activities are short, simple exercises, many of which only take a couple of minutes to do. They are not a curriculum but they are designed to support all areas of development in the curriculum. They help to wake up a child’s brain and get them moving, thinking and remembering.
Every child has a set of six bricks, one of each colour (Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Light blue and dark blue). The teacher can then quickly and easily facilitate an 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 enables children to consolidate new knowledge. Six Bricks activities are in development all the time and there are now more than 300 activities supporting different areas of development.
This online course, hosted by Drumcondra Education Centre, covers SIX BRICKS Levels 1 and 2 and is suitable for participants new to the SIX BRICKS programme. Its takes place online (2 x 2 hr sessions) and supports participants to familiarise themselves with the SIX BRICKS methodology and practice using SIX BRICKS across a range of activities designed to support a child’s development. Training is hands-on. Participants will need to carry out activities on a desk space beside their computers so it will be essential to have cameras and microphones on. For the best experience for everyone a laptop or PC will be required as participants need to be able to see each other and collaborate on various activities.
In order to fully participate in the online training registered participants will receive a set of SIX BRICKS, a SIX BRICKS Activity Mat, some additional supporting materials plus electronic copies of the SIX BRICKS Activity Guides Levels 1 and 2, activity cards, call out activities and other SIX BRICKS related resources.
