Hour of Code 2017

On the 6th of December 2017, 5th and 6th class participated in the Hour of Code. We each got a laptop. Some of us had to share with the 6th class. Two women and one man from Microsoft came in to help us and give us instructions. We started off by opening our laptops and going into Google Chrome. We looked up https://code.org/minecraft <- link here if you are interested. We went into Minecraft Adventurer and began the coding experience. There were 14 levels, each getting progressively more difficult. We learnt how to make our Minecraft character move, destroy blocks, shear sheep, turn left and right and even build houses! We also learnt about ‘repeat’ blocks and ‘if’ blocks.

We enjoyed the hour and the Microsoft team were very encouraging and helpful. We are very fortunate and thankful for the opportunity to learn how to code as it might help us in the future.
