Recently we have noticed an increasing number of young people talking about the game ‘Fortnite’. In this blog we have several links which give guidance to parents about Fortnite, looking at what the game is and some of the things to be aware of.
This week has been the penultimate week of computing club for Years 3 and 4, run by the team of digital leaders. We have been really enjoying our time playing Kodu and creating our won multi-player games.
Daniel (Digital Leader) - I have found running the club really fun because I have been able to help other children create lots of different Kodu worlds and games. I have learnt new things whilst I have been teaching the Year 3 and 4 children and have enjoyed having to solve problems with code.
Libby (Year 4 computing club member) - I have found computing club really fun because we can make our own worlds on Kodu and we can change things like colours and the land. The digital leaders have been really helpful because without them, we wouldn't know how to use Kodu.
Lawrence (Year 3 computing club member) - Computing club is brilliant because there are no limits to what you can make using Kodu - whatever you think of, you can create. I have found it fun to work Aiden (Digital Leader) as he is rally good at Kodu and together we have been able to create so many things. I have loved Kodu so much that I now use it at home.
Alisa (Digital Leader) - Being a digital leader has been so fun because when we were training to use Kodu, we were able to explore new worlds and create games. In Computing Club, I found it really easy to teach other younger children. The digital leaders have still worked together - Alastair (Digital Leader) has taught me new things on Kodu that has helped me to teach the computing club children.
Well done to the 4 digital leaders (Daniel, Freddie, Cody and Oscar) who helped Mr Cunningham to deliver an e-safety assembly to KS2 this morning - you were all very brave to stand up in front of 240 children! It gave everyone lots to think about regarding how we act online and how we treat everyone with respect. There is so much information that is really useful to read at the following website:
Hi! This is the first digital leaders blog in 2018. We are proud to be doing the first blog of the year. At the moment, we are holding a coding club on Mondays and Thursdays for years 3 and 4 only.

Aiden has been teaching the Digital Leaders some interesting code which he has explored independently during Digital Leader sessions using Kodu.
This year in Digital Leaders we have been playing a game called Kodu. It is a fun game where you can program different things to do things .All digital leaders have found this game fun and would recomend this game to children all around the world. On youtube , you can research different things and will give you ideas on what it's about and what yo can do on it. Kodu is such a fun game because you can create all sorts of things such as funny coloured land, different objects, different coloured objects and many more. You can play on it at home, in school and in your garden. Sometimes the internet connection might not work so we have had to be patient. We really hope to inspire other children to try it because it is really fun! Our digital leader club is run by Mr C. We find it very fun and wish everyone luck in trying Kodu out for themselves!
In digital leaders we played a game called Kodu. It's where we make a world like mine craft but we had to code a rover or a plant. All digital have found this fun and it is urging them to play it at home ! It is very imaginative and a great game to play .All digital leaders should be proud of them selfs
