30 Day Lego Building Challenge
 
If you have lego at home, why not take part in a 30 day Lego building challenge?
 
This is a great way to develop STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths) skills!  Each day poses a new challenge.  How will you plan?  What shapes will be best?  How will you make your structure stable?  
 
Take photos of your creations!  It would be great to compare your structures with others.  You can send your photographs to me at kbrowne@bramingham.net and I can compile a folder of the great Bramingham lego challenge,  Don't forget to send your child's name and year group.
Some fun activities to try with ice!
