Speech Writing

Walt: Identify the different places, speeches/talks that are given and how they are designed for delivery.

Ok so there have been a few words between me and others about whether a thumb is a finger, right so what do you think? Honestly thinking about it humans only have 3 fingers am I right or wrong? I’m pretty sure it’s correct I mean we have a thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger and we have our little pinkies on the end.


I’m gonna say that personally I’ve never heard anyone say ‘Oh yea I just use my pinky finger for that’ like c’mon really?! Same for the thumb I mean yeah they’re just names for them but that means nothing… or does it? Nah being honest I would say we have 4 fingers because a pinky looks like a finger *mumbles under breath* (even though it isn’t).


Sometimes online people can be persuasive and really good at bending the truth. Maybe in this case they are. Take a look at your hands. What do you see? a thumb and four fingers right? Well name all of your fingers and you’ll realise only three are called fingers while the other two aren’t. Why is this? Maybe it’s because humans only have 3 fingers. Index finger, middle finger and ring finger, and on each end we have our thumbs and pinkies. I’m convinced we have 3 fingers but that’s just my opinion.

Reflection on game



Intro:
Have you ever created a game using code? Well if you have you should be excited
Task: For the past 10 weeks my partner, Seini and I were assigned to create a game on scratch using our knowledge from last terms experience. The theme was based on space. We needed to include space facts that we read off sites and set challenges for the main sprite in our game.

Starting our Game
Getting started was not a problem but moving on to the next levels was quite tricky. We had to broadcast our sprite on to another backdrop and add a code to the backdrop to receive the broadcast so it would switch backgrounds. If that second step wasn't included than the background would stay the same which was frustrating at times.

Problem Solving
Our second level had the most issues, when trying to get our sprite (spaceship) to shoot at the enemies. Luckily, we had the internet! Tutorials were really useful when we had no help from Zoe. We were eager to learn and extend our knowledge of coding especially if we didn't have an experienced coding adult in the room who worked at O.M.G Tech to help us with it.

Highlight Levels
Level three and four were our easiest levels to work on. The third level had 15 martians attacking and one bullet point where you had to get to; to receive your bit of space information. Our fourth and last level, showed the earth orbiting the sun and had some obstacles around it to block the sprites way from reaching earth.

Conclusion
Unfortunately, my partner and I were terrible at communicating. We also weren't the best group at managing our time as well as w could have. Our game could have been better and more complex if we had done so. So these are one of the main things we need to work on for next time. Overall though putting beside our communication Seini and I created an amazing game and I especially thank her for that.
