Genius Hour In 5/6I

In 5/6I we have been working on genius hour. Genius hour is where each student gets an hour a week to work on a passion project where we can present a project to the class on anything we are interested in.

Last term I completed my very first genius hour I decided to express my love for baking. Here is my presentation I hope you love it Just as much as I do.

Using technology the right way

Hello! I just want to point out some things about how we are treating/using the technology.

  1. Trolleys –   Some people are putting the laptops and iPads the wrong way into the trolley.  I would really appreciate it if the people who know the right way to tell the people who are doing it the wrong way. Please remember how many devices fit into the slots. (MacBooks: 4) (Chromebooks: 3) (iPad: 2)
  2. Holding the Laptops the right way – Now I see this a lot. Please hold them with two hands. If your holding it in just one there’s a chance that it will fall out of your hands and break.
  3. Stacking The laptops – You can only Stack 2 Macbooks on top of each other. With chromebooks its the same – only 2.
  4. Follow online expectations – We want everyone to have a good time on the technology. Please always follow the expectations.

I hope you look after the technology more after reading this.

Programmers Club

It has been a frustrating few weeks for the programmers at St Charles Borromeo with another session having to be cancelled due to heat. Unfortunately, when  students are kept in at lunch I have to help supervise classes.

We will try again on Tuesday, 8 March.

Some students have asked what Programmers Club is all about. Here is a video introducing Scratch:

Here is a video explaining why it is important children learn to program (code):

What do you think? Is it important to learn how to program?
