The pupils learned all about coding from employees of Microsoft. It was very interesting to learn how to write code and instruct the computer to do different tasks.
There was a whole school participation in this coding lesson over two days. Each of the 17 classes were scheduled for a period of 40 minutes on April 23rd and April 24th.
Some Microsoft employees were in St. Louis and they were completing an hour of code with every class in the school.
All of the pupils learned about coding and writing computer code.
It was really interesting!
Here are some of the games we made for the Coding Competition. Have fun trying them out!
We worked on our typing skills in the computer room today. We typed paragraphs all about ourselves and wrote about our hobbies. Room 1 really enjoyed working with the boys and girls from Room 15 on this activity.
The boys and girls in Room 6 were busy creating projects using the scratch computer programme. They can also work on their projects at home.
We went to the computer room with some people from Microsoft to take part in the Hour of Code.
It was really great to learn all about coding and making our own games on the computer.
Thanks to Mr. Roche for organising it.
The boys and girls in Room 4 were working hard at some online maths challenges.
We really enjoyed our first trip to the computer room! This week we were busy working on our mouse skills.
5th class in Room 14 are busy learning about the European Union and it’s countries. We’ve each taken a country and are creating a PowerPoint project about these. This involves a lot of research of the country and learning how to create a PowerPoint. It’s a great, fun and new way to do a project though!
Room 7 were using the computers to make their own comics.
They are really great.
