Being allowed to play computer games in school lessons - sounds too good to be true.

Being allowed to play computer games in school lessons - sounds too good to be true!

Pupil playing Minecraft

But more than 200 UK schools are using a specially adapted version of the popular game Minecraft to help pupils to learn.
Minecraft is set in a virtual world where players build with blocks of different materials.
At one school, children play the game and then write stories inspired by their experience.
Teachers using the game say it can help get kids who don't like books to do more reading and writing.

Computer games have been blamed in the past for causing violence and addiction, but now some schools are encouraging children to play them in lessons to help with more traditional subjects.
So could "Angry Birds" help with trigonometry, or "The Sims" with social science?
Tim Muffett has been to a school in Barnsley which is using Minecraft in its English lessons.
