P6 spent an exciting and productive morning in St Patrick’s High School, Keady upskilling themselves in Coding. Coding is part of Interactive Design in ICT, a key focus for us this year. Mrs O’Hare, head of ICT in St Patrick’s, had lots of interesting coding activities for the children including making a Dance game and Minecraft. We were very grateful for the warm hospitality shown us by Mrs O’Hare, Mrs Conlon and Mr Furphy.
Upon returning to school we enlisted Josh from P7 to help us progress our skills, using Scratch Junior. The children were able to create and build their own information project on Safety and Electricity, as part of their World Around Us topic. Beware Mr Woods, I think Josh might be able to fill your boots – fantastic job as teacher. We all learned lots more from him.
