Special recognition for ‘Lego Experts’

Recommended for a special recognition by Mrs Hayden from St Peters C of E Primary School, Year 7 students Amber W, Amber H and Rose D, are a real credit to Freebrough Academy and role models to their fellow students. 

Having previously attended St Peters C of E Primary School and past members of the Lego Club, which progressed all the way to the finals, after winning the national competition; the students have continued to return to their primary school as ‘Lego Experts’, volunteering to help the younger students. 

Helping every Thursday after school, the ‘Lego Experts’ have priceless knowledge about how the competition works and understand the nerves that the Year 6 group will have in advance. Providing advice, our students are helping them apply it to this year’s challenge which involves hydrodynamics.

Mrs Hayden, one of the Lego Mentors told us: “The students enjoyed the project so much that they are now acting as our ‘Lego Experts’. Although the Year 7 students cannot enter, they are helping and encouraging our younger students, strengthening the team. Researching, creating prototypes and developing ideas, the students have been committed and are doing a fantastic job in helping our students to showcase themselves.” 

“I’m really enjoying building friendships and that I am helping the younger students learn.” – Rose D 

“It has built excitement, has given me more courage and has allowed me to meet new people” – Amber W

“Helping the year below has allowed me to develop my leadership, teamwork and communication skills.” – Amber H

We are so proud of the students here at Freebrough and they have clearly shown our Freebrough values of PRIDE. Thank you to Mrs Hayden, for enlightening us about their work and we would like to wish St Peters C of E Primary School all the best of luck as they progress through the Lego competition.
