Programming Reflection by Laetitia G

  1. What have you been doing on the Micro bits?

We have been using a website called Micro:bit: Touch develop lessons to give us tutorials on how to program different things. For example I have done Truth or Dare and I have even done pong on the website.Once we have finished our tutorials you have to press a button called Compile and that allows me to download my algorithms onto the actual micro bit.

2. What sort of algorithms have you been writing?

I have been doing all different sorts of algorithms like Truth or Dare,Guess the number,Die roll,rock paper scissors and my latest one that i finished last lesson was Pong,which was really hard to do!

3. How has the sequencing affecting your code?

The sequences allowed my codes to go in a specific order.For instance,the Truth or Dare code was quite simple, you had to make sure that you write in your code  that you have to press A on your micro bit to make sure that the word Truth doesn’t stay on the screen and so it can change to Dare because otherwise you’ll be doing truths for ages and it wouldn’t be very amusing.

4. Have you had to debug anything? Provide examples.

Yes I have debug a few things. The hardest one to find out how to do was Pong.It had 36 steps and when I got to at least step 8 i got tired and confused, i tested it out on the screen because at this time i could and nothing showed up.I thought i had done it all right but in actual fact I hadn’t. In the end i just started back at step 1 and took it slower then i managed it just before the lesson ended.

5. What are variables and have you used them when programming a Micro bit? 

Variables are  a data item that may take on more than one value during the running of your program. I think we all have used them while programming a Micro bit because the variable helps us to save our work in a way and help us to retrieve our work later on.

6. Have you used any loops?Give some examples.

Yes I have used loops.I think I used loops when I was working on the flashing heart code which was actually the first code that I had done on the Micro bits. I had to make a loop on it so that the flashing heart would stay flashing.I did this by using the forever loop.

7. What are functions and how have we used them when coding your micro bits?

A function is a type of routine or procedure.Most programming  languages come with a prewritten set of functions that are kept in a library.We have been using functions throughout our work on the micro bits to help us through the procedure of actually working out our code.

Laetitia Graham’s Photoshop Project!

In this project I have taken a selection of pictures and used Photoshop to make them look a bit better,Photoshop is good for making things look better because it lets you use a hole range of tools so that its easy and quick to do.

I think that my project went very well although I didn’t finish all of the pictures that I was given.I could of improved the reality of my pictures because on some of them , for instance  the bright red colour of the women’s hair on my first picture looks a bit fake.Overall I quite enjoyed the Photoshop project and might use it in the future!

Laetitia’s-Will the horse stack it?

The Loch Ness Monster- Real or Fake?

The legend of the Loch Ness monster started in around about the 1940s . The Loch Ness monster is said  to be real after a recent siting of a strange creature in The loch Ness lake in Scotland.Some people believe this is all just a hoax  but others are really interested in finding this creature,like Steve Feltham. This man has been living right next to the Loch Ness lake for many years and in 2014 claims to have seen a creature in the lake but he can not prove it because he had said he had forgotten his camera when he saw this creature in the lake.

The Loch Ness monster could be real because recent photographs of Nessie, as people claim to have taken, are very convincing such as once again Steve Feltmans photo of a mythical creature in 2011 {when he had his camera}  nearly the whole of Scotland said they have never seen this sort of animal before and had congratulated him on finding this mythical creature.

It is possible that the Loch Ness monster could be made up just for attention. For example, a man reported who that he had travelled past the Loch Ness lake when he saw a sort of creature hop out of the water. The next day he sent men out into the water with a waterproof camera to take pictures.The men took the pictures as requested, and then showed him what they had taken. The man chose one of the pictures and posted it online saying something simple like “I sent my men into the lake and they took a picture of Nessie so she is real and not fake.”Yet he had not noticed his men had taken a picture of an ordinary catfish!

In conclusion, I am unable to decide whether Nessie is real or fake because nobody has proven the existence or non-exsistence of this creature or myth. However, if I had to choose one way or the other I think that the Loch Ness monster could of been real but maybe died and become extinct.

 

              

The Green Party Blog Post

The Green Party was founded in 2001,in the United States.The first leader of the Green Party was Caroline Lucas.Caroline was only the leader of the Green Party from 2001-2008 and then a lady called Natalie Bennett took over.

The Green Party will bring back abandoned buildings and let people rent them out, so they can ensure that people have a secure and safe home that is affordable.The Green Party will also tackle climate change faster and more effectively,and they will also make sure to save Mother Nature from the evil designs of mankind,which means that people have been destroying the environment  buy building offices and factory’s, that the people have built then abandoned.

The Green Party

Firstly,we believe in the Green party because we thing that they can bring more happiness into peoples lives.

The Green Party are going to help build more social rented homes and bring abandoned buildings back into use so they can ensure that people have a place to live and then they can live in happiness and not be disappointed with themselves because they might not have enough money ,were as their friends can afford better things.

So vote for the Green party because they will help people develop into a better life!

Racing Car Game

Instructions:

For the pink car you use z to turn left and x to turn right and for the blue car you use the left arrow key to go left and the right arrow key to go right the aim of the game is the first one over the black line wins and if you drive into the  lake in the middle then you crash and the other player has a big chance of winning.

Hope you enjoy!!!! Comment down below!

My Scratch Portfolio

Instructions: Pong

Use the arrow keys to move  player two and use a and z to move player one.

The idea of the game is if the ball hits a side depending on which side it hits the other player gets a point.

Instructions: parrot shooting

The aim of the game is to shoot the parrots to shoot them you press the arrow key  then when you are finished you press A to play again! 

I think my games went pretty good  but I could of put in a start and finish screen that would of made them a lot better.

How to be safe on twitter

When you use twitter  you should use a strong password and don’t tell anyone . Also don’t reply to people you don’t know and don’t give out any personal information to anyone. Beware  of unknown links.  I think you should set your account to private so it is kept away from people you don’t  know. Ignore messages from people you don’t know and follow people you know.It is dangerous to tweet that your not going to be home unless your tweet is protected. If you play any games be careful of what you put on there, don’t let twitter broadcast your location .If you see something and you think it is bad you do not click on it! And remember, it is up to you to decide what to do if you get a tweet.

Remember be safe!!!!
