Our First Class students recently completed a six week coding block led by Aideen Murphy and Ms.Sloyan.
They children by learning the language of coding and were excited about becoming programmers each week. ‘Blockly’ followed introducing and forming code by connecting blocks together. This was followed by ‘Angry Birds’ where their mission was to catch the naughty pig, using commands etc.
Finally, their main coding project was Scratch Programming. Scratch is a programming language (CODE) that allowed us to create our own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art. The creativity and skill level was wonderful to see from children, learning how to code for the first time.
We are all so grateful to Aideen for her time and expertise. We were amazed at the children talents and progress in such a short space of time. We look forward to practising coding at home and at school in the future.
Finally thank you also to our Senior students who helped their younger friends with the programme. Next up will be our Second Class students after our Christmas break!
