Pupils at Northampton's Kings Heath Primary Academy build giant LEGO city

Year 4 pupils at Northampton’s Kings Heath Primary Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, constructed their own illuminated LEGO model city during an electric science workshop. 

As part of the session, pupils worked in teams to build a number of moving cities by using a combination of plastic LEGO bricks and small electric circuits to create buildings, houses, lights and moving trains.

The workshop, which was run by Phil Garside at Team Building Workshops, encouraged pupils to share their ideas and show off their construction skills.

Kim Duff, Principal at Kings Heath Primary Academy, said: “It was fantastic to see our pupils’ skills and confidence grow throughout the session.

“Not only have the pupils enjoyed learning about electricity and building their own working model city, but they have also recognised the importance of teamwork to achieve the highest of levels.”


As part of the David Ross Education Trust, Kings Heath Primary Academy aims to provide every student with a world-class education by focusing on delivering high standards of attainment and achievement, whilst raising confidence and self-esteem amongst individuals. 

Sharing ideas and a thirst for learning is an important part of a child’s education. Offering a range of fun yet creative ways to explore every child’s love of learning really helps them to excel in their studies.
