February Half -Term Minecraft Activity

If your child is between 6 and 11 years old and is a Minecraft enthusiast, this half-day Minecraft fun meet is a perfect half-term activity.

Our experienced classroom practitioners will use Minecraft EDU on laptops to run a variety of interactive activities to allow your child to explore and create exciting new worlds.

Your child will have the opportunity to work independently or to collaborate with fellow minecrafters to build worlds, create characters and solve problems using imagination, creative thinking and teamwork.

As a memento of the day, you will be given a free photo of your child in a Minecraft world and a special souvenir.

You do not need to bring any equipment – all resources and laptops will be provided.

There is no need for parents/guardians to stay, but if you feel more comfortable remaining on the premises, we have a space where you can wait. All our staff are DBS registered and are experienced classroom practitioners.

The meets are being held on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th February and are repeated four times.

Please visit the website to book a place for your child.
