Minutes of Code - Smart Letter Delivery Activity2019-10-08 To 30In order to cultivate students' computational thinking and use programming to solve problems, we designed a smart letter delivery system as a lunchtime activity using Minutes of Code. During the activity, students act as programmers at a post office and design how to use an iPad and mBot to deliver letters to the different destinations.
During the process, the students were engaged, patient and perseverant. Through repeated tests and adjustments to the control of the mBot car, they achieved great success. A large number of students said the activity was interesting and hoped to attempt higher-level tasks.
Our MKC family (P1 Integrated Studies)2019-10-02 To 12-31A big welcome to all the P1 students. As part of the school curriculum, a series of activities were organized by the Integrated Studies Programme. Through this programme, our students got to know more about their primary school and classmates.
First we had a welcoming ceremony for our students and they learnt about the school rules and manners they should adopt here at MKC.
For the second session, they were taken on a school tour by their class teachers. They visited the English room and had fun activities with the NETs. They went to the computer room to play some educational computer games and also went to the library to read some interesting books. They even visited their teachers in the staff room.
For the third session, our students got to know more about the people who work at the school. Students first learned skills to be able to interview others. Then they had the chance to talk to different people at the school and interview them. They chatted with Principal Fung, the school social worker, the office staff, the janitors and also the teaching assistants.
