Principal Day – Rebecca

Rebecca is our Vice Principal. If you, Reader, are the Rebecca we are talking about…hey! If you are some random person that is called Rebecca…hey! If your name isn’t Rebecca…hey!

For those who don’t know who Rebecca is, here is some stuff about her.

Rebecca is the sweetest person I know, she cares about what we are learning, she is so caring. Rebecca is helpful and so beautiful. No…not beautiful…gorgeous! Once I was sad and I went over to have chat with Rebecca about my violin. I don’t know if she realised I was sad but she smiled at me and it made me happy and when I said bye, she gave me a hug. Rebecca, if you don’t remember this then that’s okay. You helped me then and many times before and after that. There are many more things I can say about this (this post is already 156 words) but for now…

Thank you Rebecca!

 

Coding and Programming – Session with Antony

Today, Antony taught me how to code and program. Coding and programming is basically computer language. Kinda. You give the machine or robot a series of instructions in code and if you do it correctly, the robot or machine did what you wanted it to do.  A person that used to sit next to me in class, showed me some stuff, but I didn’t really catch on. So when Ant did the lesson, it made sense. Antony explained that coding and programming is really important because it’s becoming a big part of our future and the robots and machines are way more efficient than humans. We should learn coding and programming because not a lot of schools have programming classes and it will encourage kids to try coding, you should also learn coding because it is important for our future.

 

 

What do I want to learn more about? – I want to learn more about brackets because they make things a lot easier when we were programming the robot. They interest me and it propels my curiosity for programming and coding even more.

What confuses or excites me? – The brackets confuse me a bit because sometimes I don’t know if I need them or not and sometimes I wonder if they are in the right place. Even though they confuse me, I would like to become comfortable with them,

How can MPPS improve their learning about coding? – I think MPPS would improve a lot if we could have a club sort of thing, and give the students the opportunity to learn more advanced coding and programming.
