Learning with Lego

Two new physics clubs introduced for north London primary pupils.

Published: 23 April 2024

Thanks to a physics education grant, two brand new physics clubs have been launched at Montem Primary School; an inner-city London school, serving a vibrant a multi-ethnic community in north London.  

“The aim of our clubs has been to develop children’s understanding of what physics is within the world of science, and for children to understand all the incredible ways in which physics affects our day-to-day lives, through fun and exciting activities and experiments,” explains Assistant Headteacher Rebecca Wieckowska. 

The STEM Lego club is already fully booked, with children exploring physical concepts through engineering-based Lego builds. “The children have been having a wonderful time,” enthuses Rebecca. “They have been working together in pairs or groups with the brand-new Lego kits to explore forces and movement. It’s great to see how focused they are on their builds!” 

“Our second club is a hands-on Physics Club,” continues Rebecca. “We are really excited to see that we have had fantastic engagement from girls in this club! With women still underrepresented in the world of science, particularly physics, we would love to see our Montem girls go on to become ground-breaking physicists of the future!” 

Each term, the clubs will be (re)launched with a physics day and a physics assembly and new children will be invited to take part – ensuring that more children can be reached throughout the year. The Ogden grant is also enabling the clubs to be run at another local primary school too.
