BTN- coding school

November26

This week we watched a video on coding at Aberfoyle primary school.

Aberfoyle park high school has a coding program that happens twice a week at lunch time. It is a way for kids to interact have fun and maybe score a job in the future. The games that different kids have made require some serious strategic thinking.

The way the lunchtimes work is their teacher comes in and does a coding workshop. Which helps them learn more about coding and they can improve.

The coding school has been running for 3 years

How many people are in the coding club?

This is how students describe coding “coding is using different letters or blocks depending what type of code you’re using to make something happen on a digital object.”

The students seem to like it a lot and have a lot of fun which is inspiring and encouraging for young people since coding is said to be big in the future.

I wonder how it is going to change our future and if it will become part of the state school curriculum

The students like that they are being individuals, taking risks and taking on challenges.

They code on tablets and IPads using a coding language called Python, they use Pthon on an app named Pythonista.

Pythonista is known to be an easy coding app which encourages students to code, they build their own games and sometimes design games in teams.

I understand there are different coding programs because I use scratch and they use pythonista so there are many ways you can learn to code.

The process to publishing a game is

  1. planning
  2. start working on pythonista
  3. give their finished game to the teacher for approval
  4. the teacher then sends the game to the app store for anyone in the world to play

 They have seven games in the the app store.

Aberfoyle Park high school is now the first school in the country to be a developer under its own name.

A lot of kids are looking forward to do this their whole life and get an ideal job in the future.

They might just be the inventors of the newest and best app one day.

“Give me back my chocolate-bar” I screamed to my brother, I just thought how sneaky he is, almost as sneaky as a burglar stealing crown jewels.  Then he replied “I didn’t steal your chocolate.” Then the door slammed… I knew he locked himself in their so I wouldn’t find out the truth that he didn’t want to confess. “I know you are lying to my face.” I shouted. “You are a brat” my brother said really loudly. “Wow” I sarcastically argued back. Then I picked the lock, grabbed the chocolate and stormed out saying “have a nice day bro.”

Goal:  My goal was to right a rhyming poetry since right now in class we are learning poetry

Prompt: Describe your most treasured item without saying it…

Poem: 

It took 5 years to earn but I had to first learn jete`s pointing toes and how to turn

I worked hard for it with my passion I do with my heart and never think about fashion.

It belongs in my room, it shall stay there well at least I assume

Its purple and gold and I’ll have it till I am old

I may collect more, it is a new opportunity and an opening door.

Light and Electricity Experiment

September14

This week we watched one about A world changing experiment

I strongly recommend watching the video than reading the reflection, it would make much more sense

The link to the video is here…   Click here

KEY:

Blue = Facts

Red = Understandings

Green =  Questions

Black  = More Information

At Charterhouse there is a famous sample of a very world changing experiment about electricity and lights in general. Because of this experiment we understand more and can use power. Which is very convenient in the world we live in today.

Stephen Gray did the experiment very carefully and specifically to get the best result. To do this experiment Stephen Gray the inventor of the experiment built a wooden frame and formed the top beam he then attached two swings using silk rope coming off the swings. He had another device called a Hauksbee machine. This machine was carefully designed for generating static electricity.

What was his inspiration to do the experiment?

The way he conducted an experiment was to get an orphan boy from the Charterhouse and then he told the Orphan boy to lie across two swings. Stephen Gray then carefully placed gold leaf in front of him.

He then generated electricity…

By charging the connecting rod that was connected into the boy and the swing.

Gold leaf leapt to the boys fingers. People even believe sparks were coming out of his fingers.

Where did he get the technology and gold leaf to do this experiment?

The way Stephen Gray saw it was quite clever and the way we use power today is based on his observation. He then discovered from his experiment that electricity could move…

This happened from the machine to the boy’s body, through to his hands. But the silk rope stopped it dead. It means the electrical fluid could flow through some things but not through everything.

It opened a new path for Stephen Gray. It divided the world into two different kinds of substances for him. He named them insulators and conductors. Insulators held electric charge within them and made them stand still or make the electricity not move, like the silk rope. Although conductors allowed electricity to flow through them, like the boy.

This observation is crucial even today. The power-lines we have today work on the same system that Gray did his experiment on almost 300 years ago. The wires on the power-lines act as conductors. The glass and the metal are more insulators that stop the electricity leaking from the conductors or wires into the power-line and down to earth. The wires on the power-lines are exactly like the silk rope in Stephan Gray’s experiment…

I understand about why they used power-lines as an example because the experiment is really similar and we need power-lines as they are a big part of our life today. You could also really see the key similarities between the insulators and conductors in power-lines and in Grays experiment.

100WC bigfoot

September7

Goal: 

My goal to achieve was to make my story seem like this “creature” was really big and you could       visualize the creature in your head quite clearly.

Prompt

Short story

“Mum I left my shoe back a couple of streets, I need to go get it.” Explained Mia

“Very well I’ll wait here.” Assured her mum

Mia went back to get a back to get her shoe. She went down the street and crossed the road.

She stopped for a minute to think about what her shoe was doing near some rather large footprints. The footprints that looked like a yeti or something horrifyingly big. She ran across the road, down the street and saw and heard nothing except for a shadow of a rather large creature.

August29

Prompt: then suddenly it went dark

Story:

When the day was cold. The leaves were blowing slowly. The wind was loud. The power lines made a wicked scary sound then suddenly it went dark. It was black you couldn’t see anything. When your eyes were closed you could not see anything if your eyes were open you couldn’t see anything either way. It felt like your eyes were closed for the whole day. It is the worst feeling and you can’t do anything and then you have a thought about this is how blind people live every day and I am complaining because the power went out.
