Six Bricks Introduction
Six Bricks activities are short, simple exercises, many of which only take a couple of minutes to do. They are not a curriculum but they are designed to support all areas of development in the curriculum. They help to wake up a child’s brain and get them moving, thinking and remembering through playful learning.
Every child has a set of six bricks, one of each colour (Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, Light blue and dark blue). The teacher, professional or parent can then quickly and easily facilitate an activity at any time. Repetition brings about better organization of the brain and the secret of the success of these activities lies in their regular repetition which enables children to consolidate new knowledge. Six Bricks activities are in development all the time and there are now more than 300 activities supporting different areas of development.
In addition, Miriam O Donoghue has developed many resources and activity cards to support the programme. These are all made available to course participants
This course, covers both SIX BRICKS Levels 1 and 2. Its takes place online on Zoom (Two x 2 hr sessions) and supports participants to familiarise themselves with the SIX BRICKS methodology and practice using SIX BRICKS across a range of activities designed to support a child’s development. Training is hands-on. Participants will need to carry out activities on a desk space beside their computers so it will be essential to have cameras and microphones on. For the best experience for everyone a laptop or PC will be required as participants need to be able to see each other and collaborate on various activities.
In order to fully participate in the online training registered participants will receive a set of SIX BRICKS, a SIX BRICKS laminated Activity Mat, some additional supporting materials plus electronic copies of the SIX BRICKS Activity Guides Levels 1 and 2, activity cards, call out activities and other SIX BRICKS related resources. The activity guides provide step by step details on how all of the activities are carried out, skills and developmental areas supported for each activity, teacher notes, and activity extensions and variations.
This course is suitable for Primary Teachers, SEN staff, SNAs and Early Childhood Practitioners. Teachers up to and including 4th class would likely benefit most, however Six Bricks activities are very versatile and can be adapted and scaled up or down depending on the age and stage of the children you are working with.
Participants who complete the full training are eligible for SIX BRICKS Certification
