Kids from Aberfoyle Park High school have created some games, thanks to coding.
Fact 1-There are different colours of letters or blocks depending on the type of code you are using.
Fact 2-Coding language is called ‘Python’
They work as teams to design games, and then, when they are finished, they give their finished code to their teacher, who then emails them to an app store.
Fact 3-This is the first school in the country to be registered as a developer under it’s own name.
Coding is definitely going to be a big part of technology in the future.
Question 1-Would coding complicated games with many levels be very hard compared to our coding website we use? (Scratch)
Question 2-Why do they encourage coding in that school so much?
Wondering-I wonder if any of their games will become very popular and famous?
The Grim reaper crept around the wildlife nature park. I felt the sweat pouring down my face, neck and back. I was scared. Really scared. I wanted to get out of the park but I couldn’t find the way out. I felt like he was right behind me. I felt his breath on my neck. Cold. Lifeless. I would be dead when he caught me. Goodbye cruel…Wait. I won’t give up yet. I turned around to confront him. There was nothing there. Soon I felt a sharp jab on my inside. His soul is now in me…no more life…
I hid the chocolate under my bed. I just know it! But it’s been stolen. But where did I hide it all? The answer is I don’t know. I am so angry. I storm into my brother’s room. He’s got it. I go into his room. He quickly looks away from the doorway where I was standing. I come up to him and grab his shoulders. He has chocolate smeared on his face and T-shirt. I grab him and wrestle him to the ground. I knew he had eaten it. ALL of it. I tackled him to the ground. HATRED!
Passage 1-Blurb (back of book)
“I bet you fifty dollars you can’t eat fifteen worms,”
With a simple “okay” the bet is on.
Fried worms, boiled worms, worm sandwiches, worms with peanut butter…however he eats them, Billy must eat 15 worms in 15 days. Will he win? Or will Alan and Joe find a way to stop him walking away with their fifty dollars?
I chose this passage, because it surprised me, because in the movie, Alan is on his side, and Joe is the one who thinks he can’t eat 15 worms.
Passage 2-Page 6Paragraph 2
I will get someone to read it out.
I also found this surprising, because in the movie, Billy has a very weak stomach.
The flame crackled as we were swimming.We celebrated my birthday, then went swimming. We eat my big white birthday cake. It was vanilla. We partied almost all night, but also fit some time in for swimming. We had a bomb competition, to see who could make the biggest splash. My brother and I had very big splashes, but mine was bigger, so I won some lollies. We had a huge day, but had a huge amount of fun. After, at 11:00, we went to sleep. We had an awesome day!
Bang! As the door slammed I knew I was in trouble. Mum stomped into my room.
“I just got a call from your teacher that you graffitied on the principle’s walls!” She screamed.
“Yeah, the whole class did she taught us how to swear. Fu-,” I started.
“Don’t tell me,” she muttered.
“Teacher said they were the ‘ten commandments’ and we HAD to follow them. We slept instead of doing maths, and we had pizza! The teacher payed!” I replied.
“Please don’t tell me this was another poem?”
“Excuse me. I’m enrolling Zedekai into your school,” said mum into the phone.
I chucked this guy in the river. So this is how it started. My mum and I were walking in the park. He was coming way too close for my liking. He seemed really specky and shifty. I was really suspicious of him. He was holding his hands behind his back. I looked behind me, and he quickly looked of into the distance and whistled. We could hear his footsteps crunching on the gravel behind us. He came really close and held some silver blade in his hand. I blocked him from my mum and threw him in the river.
THE ITEM WAS…
Left=Bronze. Middle=Gold. Right=Silver.
Picture of some of my soccer medals. I don’t really know if they were my most treasure items, but I couldn’t think of anything else.
The beautiful shine is so bright. The gold silver and bronze so precious. With achievements written all over them. The green, red and blue colored ribbons on your neck. With help from your skill, your wit and sometimes your teammates, you get these things for winning something, or for being best of the best. Some people in life feel they should deserve these things for the things they do or are good at. But you don’t need one of these to be an awesome person, or a winner.
(Reveal of item in next post😝)
Have fun working it out, and good luck!
“Why did you smash that lightbulb???” Asked my mum angrily.
“I didn’t,” I said innocently.
“Go to your room! You are grounded!” my mum yelled.
I walked slowly to my room, hanging my head.
I slowly closed the door behind me. The lightbulb was in the hall way. I kept looking, and then, I saw little men fixing the lightbulb. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was shocked. I rubbed my eyes, but no, I wasn’t imagining it. I walked out of my room slowly, not scaring the men away. I think one heard me, because it turned and waved.
