There is a whole range of correct answers, as there is variation in the size of bricks and quality of the clay from which they are made.

The table on this page shows the weight of 1000 bricks of various types/sizes in Cwt (20 cwt = 1 ton.)

Ignoring the smaller, lighter clinker bricks, we find 1000 bricks weighing between 2,5 and 4.5 ton.
