The Mead lego Educational

Earlier this term The Mead welcomed visitors from ITN and Lego Education to create a short film about learning with Lego in primary schools. The film will be shown at the National Association of Head Teachers Conference in May, and will also feature on the ITN Education News website. As well as filming during lessons and interviewing children and staff, some general views of the school were captured.

At The Mead Lego is used to enrich learning, particularly in literacy and computing, and the school were proud to be able to showcase this with a wider audience.

The children said:

“We talked to the visitors about our learning and the Lego, but when the presenter asked me questions, I just didn’t know what to say! I kept saying ‘urm…urm...’ I hope they don’t use that bit!”

“It was funny when we had to put our coats and bags on and get filmed pretending to come to school!”
“We had to sit in the music garden and act like it was playtime!”

“I didn’t believe that the man was a news reporter… but then I heard him speak and he sounded exactly like they do on the telly!”

“Miss Harrison talked on camera about a Lego banana!”

The visitors commented on how well behaved and enthusiastic the children were; they told the school that they wished they could come back and make all their films at The Mead.
