What ALGORITHMS have you been CREATING on the micro-bits?
On the micro-bits I have been making lots of things, mostly games such as:
To do this I have to make things like scrolling words and making the LEDs light up according to the x and y axis. Also loops and ‘if’ statements came in handy. An ‘if’ statement tells the object to do the statement underneath but only if the conditions are correct, hence the name conditionals.
How has sequencing affected your code?
Sequencing has affected my code because of loops and functions. Without sequencing everything would be in the wrong order and the code would be wrong. Sequencing is the order of which the code is, and if the sequencing is wrong then the code is wrong.
Have you had to debug anything? Provide examples.
Debugging is finding an error in your code and eradicating it. I have not had to debug anything except my flappy bird game, I could not debug it because of two reasons:
What are variables and have you used them when programming micro-bits?
Variables are things that are affected by a statement and they store information. They are used quite frequently. The x and y axis are used as variables and these are one of the most common ones I came across when coding on Text Editor.
Have you used any loops? Give some examples?
A loop is something that happens over and over again until it is told to stop. I have used quite a few of them and they make things easier, so instead of writing the same lot of code over and over again. I used an infinite loop (a never-ending loop), I used this the most at the start of the code so that you can keep on playing rather than having to reset the micro-bit.
What are functions and have you used them when coding micro-bits?
Functions are statement but shortened, instead of writing out the same code, you can shorten it into a function with the same amount of information but in a shorter form. I used a lot of functions in the pong game because a lot of long statements were repeated so I made a function. An example is ‘ball move’.
Overall I really enjoyed this topic because it was a very active one that you could take home and do, I found the python a bit more challenging and it was very difficult to debug. I would like to carry this on in the future because it was one of my favourite topics.
Jude Leigh’s Photoshop Project on Photo Peach
In this Photoshop project, I think that my end result was quite good. I think that I could improve on removing wrinkles because in that picture it looked a bit unnatural. I think that I did well on the liquify pictures. When I started changing Britney Spears it was quite fun and I think that I improved the look of her a lot.

Area 51 is famously known for holding aliens, and in this podcast we will be looking at if this is true.
Area 51 is in Southern Nevada and has lots of aircraft hangars and public have disputed about the work that is going on inside. Area 51 has been given lots of names in the past like Groom Lake and Paradise Ranch etc. Â but the name â€˜Area 51â€™ derives from its markings on 1950â€™s Nevada Test Site maps. Today, the official name of Area 51 is Air Force Flight Test Center, Detachment 3, or AFFTC Det. 3 for short.
A man called Mike Oram has claimed to be abducted at this notorious military base and said that he saw aliens.Â He said that he saw an alien mothership on the border of Essex, London and that he is in contact with a so called ‘alien brother’ and also that there is a terrible source of energy at the center of the galaxy that will soon consume the Earth. There has been a siting of a UFO being transported to Area 51 with A LOT of police getting involved.
Major Bolden has said:
â€œThere is an Area 51,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s not what many people think. Iâ€™ve been to a place called that but itâ€™s a normal research and development place. I never saw any aliens or alien spacecraft or anything when I was there.
â€œI think because of the secrecy of the aeronautics research that goes on there itâ€™s ripe for people to talk about aliens being there.â€
All together I believe that Area 51 does not hold any aliens!
