IT wasn't all work and no play for pupils at Crabtree Infants School in Harpenden when they held a maths and ICT week.

For they used Lego building blocks as part of the lessons.

The Lego was used by Young Town Planners Ltd to run a workshop where the children first built an attractive house each and then developed their models into a complete village.

Jane Whitehurst, head teacher at the school, said: "The children had a great time but it also helped them to understand mathematical concepts. The emphasis was firmly on problem-solving."
