Welcome to Code-topia 


Over the next few weeks we are going to be learning to code together. 


WALT: We are learning coding so that instead of just using technology we will create it

Over the next couple of weeks, you will be given a taste of coding. You will then be given a choice of tasks, that you can work on depending on where your interests lay. 



WILF: 
  • Problem solving 
  • iValue: I work well with others. At different times during these lessons you will be both a teacher and a student. You need to be treating each other with respect and kindness. 
  • Patience - Sometimes technology is slow or not working, you will be required to show your resilience and refresh until you are back online or work offline on other aspects of your projects. 

Group goals: 

Term goal: What will you all be able to do by the end of this term? 

Big picture: If you could what would you create?



Your Tasks
