Minecraft – The Enid Blyton Edition

Following on from the success of last year’s City of Culture Minecraft Project, PrimaryTec are again running a Minecraft project for schools.

This project, aimed at Year 4 children, will take a full class of children to the imaginative world of Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree. After reading the book prior to starting the project, the class will receive 3 half-days of Minecraft teaching and learning, with the goal of creating their own magical land, just like Enid Blyton created in her Magic Faraway Tree series of books.

The project is running from March to December 2018 (so the Year 4s may be Year 5s by the time we finish!)

Sponsored by The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank, this project is only open to a limited number of schools, and all resources will be provided by PrimaryTec, and representatives from the class will be invited to attend an awards ceremony towards the end of the year.

By taking part in this project, your children will learn a whole  set of new skills, including:
• Resilience
• Collaboration
• Creativity
• Problem Solving
• Technical skills
• Real life coding experience
• Communication
