You have used Kodu in previous year groups. Mrs Miles (our IT genius!) has very kindly put a series of lessons together so that you can continue your learning and develop your IT skills whilst learning from home. There are six lessons in total. We know how much you love kodu so these can be done at your own pace, as and when you want to. We suggest doing  l 2-3 lessons this week and the rest next week.


Here is the link:

Mrs Miles has included all the resources you need to work through these lessons on the link above. We suggest you go through the lesson powerpoint before starting the activity. 




We are going to be using FlipGrid for some exciting tasks.


You will need to log in with your HWB log ins, then you can make a short video where you just say Hello 😊


A how to guide is available here

Minecraft Education


If you haven't already downloaded Minceraft Edu I suggest you download it on your device if you want to join in our class challenges. The app is available from the Android and Apple store and is totally free.


Click here to download the desktop version.


Once Minecraft Edu has downloaded you can log on using your HWB log ins just like we have been doing in school.


Class Challenges


On Thursday between 11-12, Mrs Miles will host a Minecraft world for year 5. She will give you a join code live just before 11 so be sure to check out our school twitter page with an adult. Enter the join code and you will be entered into the world with your class mates.


If you have any problems logging in Mrs Miles will post another join code 5 minutes after for any late attendees. If the worlds are too popular Mrs Miles will create another world for any extras to access.


Individual Challenges


Individual challenges will be set for pupils to use whenever they want.


Feel free to explore some of the downloadable worlds here or check out some of the lessons here.
