Become a part of the Maker Movement by using Minecraft! In this course you will make your own world, blocks and structures, develop your understanding of coding and even experiment with different materials to create your own minecraft worlds.
Minecraft is an incredibly popular block building game, the second most-downloaded game of all time.

I am an enthusiastic and passionate educational practitioner. I am a fully qualified teacher and have taught the full range of the primary years (currently in Year 4), and have an in-depth subject knowledge across the board. As part of being a leader in my school, I am currently head of History, and have previously held the positions of head of Character and KS1 English. I gained 9 A* qualifications before my A and A* A-Levels. I studied Classics at Warwick, earning the first place prize for my final year dissertation.
I strongly believe that all children are able to develop a growth mindset, learn across all subjects and make progress. I have studied and used a number of techniques to aid learning and uses them daily in her classroom. My teaching style is joyous, pacy and firm.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling around the world and finding new food and cultures to immerse myself in. I am an avid reader and baker and love book recommendations (and recipes!) from all ages.
