A LEGO® Brick Submarine underwater adventure ride is also bound to attract the attention of pupils, so don’t miss experiencing the Deep Sea Adventure which allows students to get up close to aquatic animals.
What’s new for school groups in 2020?
- New for 2020 will be the Mosaic Masters workshop, available to Key Stage 1-2 students. This workshop ties in Art and History with a unique LEGO twist. The session explores the history of mosaics and famous LEGO artists who still use the technique today. Students will then design and build a LEGO Mosaic themselves using a wide range of inspiration and examples covered in the workshop.
- Also new and improved for 2020 are the LEGO Robotics Primary and Secondary workshops. Bringing Science to life, this session allows students to explore Robotics utilising the LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 Sets and the LEGO Education MINDSTORMSEV3 systems. In groups students will build and program their own interactive LEGO model whilst covering key Computing topics such as algorithms, Boolean, repetition in programs, debugging & inputs and outputs.
- Linking to the English, Art & Design curriculum for Pre-School, Key Stages 1 and 2 is the new and improved LEGO® Story Maker session. The aim of this workshop is to spark creativity, boost reading, writing, speaking and listening skills through building scenes with LEGO Bricks and LEGO Minifigures. Schools are encouraged to continue their stories back in the classroom and send them back to LEGOLAND for the team to read and enjoy.
- School groups planning a visit in 2020 should also look out for the new ride in DUPLO Valley, the DUPLO® Dino Coaster. Pupils can take their seat upon the DUPLO brick Dinosaur and hold on tight as they soar round the Park.
