Flipgrid is a programme provided for free to all pupils attending schools in Wales. This programme allows for us to set discussions, oracy and speaking & listening as home learning tasks. To access Flipgrid at home all you need is;
  • a device to access the internet
  • your pupil' HWB username and password (provided on your pupil's Password Placemat)
  • the Flipcode for your pupil's class (also provided on the Password Placemat).

The easiest way to access Flipgrid is by downloading the app onto a tablet or smartphone. Once you've logged in and entered your Flipcode once you will not need to do it again on that device. Scroll down to the very bottom of the page for a short video which will support you in downloading at home (Glanhowy's class codes are different to the ones in the videos).

IMPORTANT: Once you've uploaded your video it will not appear on the grid until it has been moderated by one of our members of staff!
