STEM Week Visit to Ibstock Brickworks

7th July 2017

STEM and Enterprise Visit to Ibstock Brickworks

During STEM Week and as part of our project to develop the Early Years outdoor learning area, Ibstock Brickworks invited our Nursery and Reception children to visit their factory to see how bricks are made.  The tour of the factory covered the STEM topics of Engineering and Design & Technolgy. The children found out about the types of materials, machinery and technology that are used to make the bricks.  They also learned about the different kinds of jobs in the factory and how to stay safe in the work areas.  Along with the bricks that the children have made, Ibstock has kindly donated £1,000 so we can use the bricks to make a seating area.  Thank you Ibstock!
