Tips and activities

To help keep the Grade 1 children motivated and engaged during home schooling, the teachers have set an additional weekly LEGO challenge. LEGO offers children a chance to be creative but also requires concentration, patience and use of fine motor skills. A fantastic activity to supplement the curriculum!


The challenge requires the creation of something out of LEGO every week which is then shared on the online learning platform (SeeSaw). The kids love seeing what others have made and it gives them an opportunity to connect with their teacher and peers in a fun and creative way. The LEGO challenge is an eagerly anticipated part of the home schooling program each week!
