This is the video CODING SCHOOL
This video was about coding, the process of assigning a code to something for classification or identification. The kids from the school do coding sessions on iPads using a program called pythonista. The language that the coding is do in is called python. Python is a really easy to understand coding language and it allows them to use their iPads to create their own games.
They work as a team to design entertaining and challenging games. When they are happy they give their finished code to their teacher who sends it through to an app store. So far, the school’s got 7 games registered that anyone around the world can play. They say that at the start it was hard but after a while it gets easier. Some of the kids want to be able to continue on with this as a future job. This is what the kid said:
RYAN: With all the new technology and robots coming out, I feel like coding is going to be an important aspect in the future so I wanna use it to get a job and help me make a financial balance.
GEORIGIA: I’d really like to get a job doing this kind of thing one day. I think it would be a really fun experience.
TYLER: I’m definitely hoping to make this work in the real world especially since I’m very interested in html and I hope to code websites as well as games ’cause I heard you can make quite a buck out of that!
I would like to know what the games the have published are. It would be good to see what sort of things kids are creating. It may also give us some encouragement to do more things related to coding seeing the rewords that could come of it. I would like to know if all students do the coding sessions. Is it optional? Is it compulsory? Or does everyone want to do it? i want to know this because this can be a way of how much people are liking learning how to code. From this video it has given me the understanding of how big coding is becoming a thing and a little incite on how to use the program they where using.

Life in the Dark
My face is scrunched. My eyes were closed. My heart shrivels up unfixable as there are too many pieces lost. I return to my black hole as I feel tears trickle down. I enter a life in the dark unknown to others. It is like being a lonely apple on a tree.
You’re spat out.
Just like the lonely apple you’re dead. You died from the way your life was. The once good life is now a horror film only it’s real. Life can’t be restored from the broken pieces.
Then I fall to the ground…
I can’t get back up. There is a force so strong pushing me back down to the ground. I am left unnoticed by everyone and everything. Leaves from the autumn trees fall on top of me. My body won’t move anymore. My once functional body shuts down. I can move, talk or think anymore. I’m dead like the lonely apple. I died from the way my life was. My once good life is now a horror film only it’s real. Life can’t be restored from the broken pieces. The broken pieces of me.
The unexpected sometimes arrives. Will it happen to me?
I can feel the last parts of me being sucked away. Is it too late?
The unthinkable happens to those that wait. But have I waited long enough?
The light I once saw vanishes. Will I see that light ever again?
I close my eyes.
My eyes open. What I saw last was not what I see now. I can move my body. I can think. I can make sounds. But I am in hospital. There is a wheelchair next to my bed. I can see people around my bed. Mum, Dad, family, some kids from school and also some people I didn’t recognise. I am confused. What had happened? I didn’t know. Why am I in hospital?
Mum told me I was at school when she found me lying on the ground near the big autumn tree. She didn’t know what was wrong as I was unconscious. She brought me here to get informed of the damage. I have broken both of my legs so badly I can’t walk, maybe ever again. Also I had a fractured wrist. When she finished they looked at me for a while. Everyone is watching. Then a voice spoke. It was Dad. He asked if I remembered anything from earlier. I shook my head no. I know I was dreaming to big. The shutting down feeling was my imagination getting the best of me. It must have been the pain from the life I lived. If I am now in a wheelchair I will just damage myself more. I am here today because of the life I lived was terrible. To think this life I now have will be even worse than the one before it is too much. I have given them more power to control me. I have given then what they wanted. This is what they wanted for me to end up as some broken piece. I want to shut it all out.
My eyelids are heavy. I am asleep.

The door of the moonlight stars cabin was unlocked. Bella and her friend went in and got all the bags trashing the room and covering it in honey, toilet paper and oil.
They looked at the bags. Kate asked but where would we hide it all?
After a minute of silence Bella said we will throw it in the lake. But we would get in so much trouble if the found out that they did it. No that was a bad idea so they went to the sunset cabin unlocked the door chucked it in and ran.
The girls all laugh.
