Coding and Lego Programming

Scratch Programming Is So Cool!
Scratch Programming Is So Cool!

Today we had three marvelous volunteers from SAP.

They came to teach us how to use Scratch on our computers to make our own games.

It was so interesting and we really had fun.

We made a cat that could walk on the beach and talk to us, and a crab that could move up, down and sideways just by clicking the arrow keys.

We really want to do more Scratch.  We will do it on the school computers any time we have finished our work, and we can download it for free on our computers at home.  (Here’s the link mums and dads!!!~https://scratch.mit.edu/download Select button 2 and download the link that is suited to your system.)

Or try Scratch online without downloading anything at all:

Thanks so much Nina, Vivien and Mike for such a wonderful session today!

We really enjoyed EU Code Week 2017.

We tried some coding every day, and completed our Our of Code on Monday.

We even tried coding at home too.

Computer programming is fun!

EU Code Week: Kodable

Our coding for today was with the programme Kodable.

This programme is really easy and we had a lot of fun getting our little furry guy out of the maze each time.

Try it for yourself and see how far you can go.

We spent an hour today at computer programming for EU  Code Week.

We really enjoyed the coding and were so proud when our coding worked.

Why not try some coding at home?

Scoil Chaitriona Junior Lego Club had a great evening at the Radisson Hotel Galway . Junior First Lego League is all about taking part and working as part of a team. Ms Groarke and Ms Connolly were so proud of all the children who helped make their project creature craze a success. The students had to display their models and spoke very well about all they had learned about crocodiles.
