Ms. Mulcahy’s 4th Class worked hard over the past couple of months preparing for the BT Young Scientist. We, in 4th class, are extremely aware of the environmental issues in the world at the moment so our aim was to explore different energy forms. We decided to explore electricity. We looked at all different forms […]

This week we learnt how to code a Beebot. We had worked hard learning how to code a human bot and writing algorithm’s and now it was our chance to write some codes for the Beebot. We discussed how the sequence of instructions was important as they help us to know what to do and […]
4th Class have began their coding journey. In order for us to become successful coders we had to learn how to use directional language properly.
