Our school has signed up to be a part of EU Code Week. We hope to do some coding every day this week.

On Monday we tried Kodable and Bee Bots. http://junior.renmoreschool.com/kodable-for-eu-code-week-2021/
On Tuesday we coded with Angry Birds http://junior.renmoreschool.com/angry-birds-and-the-hour-of-code/
On Wednesday we had fun coding with Minecraft http://junior.renmoreschool.com/coding-with-minecraft/
We were coding with Moana on Thursday http://junior.renmoreschool.com/coding-with-moana/
Star Wars coding on Friday http://junior.renmoreschool.com/star-wars-coding/
We are quite expert now after coding all week! Thanks Hour of Code for a great introduction to coding!
After 5 days of coding on the tablets, we are becoming quite expert at coding.
We really enjoyed learning to code with Moana today. We are becoming very good at coding now. Some of us are coding at home too!
We are getting good at coding. Teacher explained how to code in Minecraft with a lot of help from Conor. He’s the expert at Minecraft coding.
We did some coding today from The Hour of Code with Angry Birds.
We are really getting the hang of coding.
Why not try this at home?
We are really enjoying our first introduction to coding. We are using our mini whiteboards and the tablets to help us code with Kodable and the hour of code.
Good afternoon. My name is Jonathan Comerford, I work with Cork Institute of Technology on a project called DojoMór. I am contacting you to ask for your support on behalf of the Higher Education Authority.
DojoMór is HEA-funded, nationwide, online coding fun-day for young people aged 7 – 17. Multiple workshops will be hosted from 9 locations around the country this Saturday morning. The workshops will deliver fun coding activities like programming a micro-chip, coding a virtual robot, building a software app, making music, building a website, and creating games.
Attached is more information. If you could circulate the information about this event within the school network that would be great and maybe we can get a few more sign-ups!

We can’t wait to get involved in EU Code Week 2020.
Here are some of the programmes tried!
Coding with Bee Bots 2nd class (Oct 2020)
Coding with Kodable and Angry Birds 2nd class (Oct 2020)
Coding with Minecraft and Frozen 2nd class (Oct 2020)
Coding with Play Lab 2nd class (Oct 2020)
We learned lots of exciting coding and now we can make our own games.
We also got a certificate for the great coding work we did today!
We are getting very proficient at coding.
Today we tried some Minecraft
and some Frozen coding.
We all write the lines of code on our whiteboards and then one of our classmates tries it out on the interactive board.
We are using Blockly to code (blocks of code). Now we are able to use directions, turns, repeat buttons. Coding is very interesting!
