For the first five weeks of term two we have bean learning how to code microbits.
Microbit coding is a bit like scratch except more complicated and instead of coding sprites you code red lights to flash on and off. This is a example of a code.
In this code there are two types of brick, four blue bricks and a purple brick. There is a lot of different types of bricks. These are some of the most commonly used bricks.
- Basic [blue] bricks, These bricks are simple and easy to under stand. some examples of basic bricks are ‘On start’ [when this brick is attached to a group of bricks these bricks will ocker at the start of the program] and ‘show leds’ [whichever leds are selected will appear on the microbit]
- Input [purple] bricks, These bricks say what to do when a certen thing happens. These are bricks like ‘when button A pressed’ [when the A button is presed do…….] and ‘on shake’ [when the microbit is shaken do…….]
- Music [orange] bricks, you can use these bricks to play music.
I have nine projects different projects:
- duel……….This project is my favourite project, you press the buttons to use spells like Expeliaranus.
- quitege……….i haven’t finished this project yet but once it’s finished you will be able to doge obstetrical’s to get the the quaffle to hoop.
- tug of led……….this is like tug of war but with a red dot instead of a rope.
- dance……….you press the buttons to make the character dance.
- emojis……….when you press the buttons different emojis appear on the microbit.
- micro chat……….using this project me and Addy can send messages to each other.
- rock, paper, scissors……….using this project me and Addy can play rock paper scissors on our microbits.
- Archie’s tug of led……….this is a project i helped my brother make.
- flashing fish……….this was very easy, a fish picture flashes on the screen.
Next i am going to make a Accio Battle and a cello game.
