Weekly classes

Our LEGO® classes are 60 to 90 minutes in length and follow the school term schedule. These weekly classes have been designed around LEGO Education’s 4C principles of Connect, Construct, Contemplate and Continue.  Through guidance and teamwork, our Mini-Engineers will build simple machines, learn STEM concepts, have fun and inspire each other.   With exception of some DUPLO Classes, children build in teams of two and each team is given their own LEGO kit. 
 

DUPLO Stories

Age Group:
4 to 5 years (Nursery, Reception)
Every child loves a great story but how about building and recreating scenes or characters from these stories with DUPLO?  Taking inspiration from some well-loved children’s books, our mini-engineers will retell and construct their favourite excerpts out of DUPLO elements.  From dinosaurs and aliens to sea life and minibeasts - anything is possible using our DUPLO Creative Kit.  Each week, we’ll focus on a different story with its own unique setting that will capture the imaginations of budding writers and storytellers by bringing stories to life. The perfect class for story lovers and DUPLO lovers alike!

SPRING TERM
Saturdays - South Kensington - 10:30
Sundays - Hampstead - 10:00

Stories and Scene Building

Age Group:
5 to 8 years (Year 1 to Year 3)
Every child loves a great story but how about building and recreating the scenes from LEGO?  Taking inspiration from famous stories, children will imagine and build scenes and sequences out of LEGO elements.  From forests and castles through to monsters, pirates and playgrounds, anything is possible using the LEGO Storytelling Kit. Whether it's looking at the mythic tales of King Arthur or Robin Hood, or classic children's authors like Dr. Seuss, your child will use their creativity to bring their favourite stories to life.   We aim to inspire as we may have the next Julia Donaldson or Roald Dahl in our midst!


SPRING TERM
Mondays - Wimbledon - 16:00
Saturdays - South Kensington - 9:00
Sundays - Hampstead - 11:15

Technic Structures and Machines

Age Group:
7 to 11 years (Year 3 to Year 6)
This class teaches children advanced and technical building techniques using LEGO Technic bricks, gears, axles and pulleys to replicate and build a variety of structures and machines found in the world around us.  Using the LEGO Education WeDo Kit, the children will learn the fundamentals of sturdy construction that will stand the test of time and then apply the principles to create functional towers, bridges, cranes and other familiar structures. They’ll engineer rides you’d see at the funfair and assemble some mighty machines from ancient times.  Ready for a challenge?  Attach a motor and use a laptop to program your build and bring it to life! This class is best for children with lots of LEGO building experience, who want to build impressive mechanical models.

SPRING TERM
Mondays - Wimbledon - 16:00

“The Mini-Engineers class was a fantastic experience for Alexandar. He has many Lego sets at home but he was never really into them. Since we came to Mini-Engineers workshop Alex has changed completely. He built all his Lego sets independently and now he has his Lego corner in his bedroom.  Great club!  We are looking forward to many more Lego sessions.”
