Project for Week 8 (16 November)
PYTHON PROJECT: Rock, Paper, Scissors
DESKTOP FOLDER: Projects > Python > Code Club UK > Module 1 > Project 2 - Rock Paper Scissors
To maximise the number of children that we can cater for we have implemented what we like to call a rotating reserve mechanism. By implementing this mechanism we are able to accept two more children into the club than we have physical space and classroom equipment for.
How it works
We will designate two of the children to be reserves and change this designation every week. You can expect your child to be designated as a reserve approximately once every 7 weeks. Children that are reserves simply do the designated code club project at home that week. There will be no designated reserves during the following weeks:
- the first week of the year (when we get to know everyone and hand out all the kit)
- the final week of each term (when we typically schedule cool things like demo days)
- the week of 23 November (when P7 is away for the week at Lagganlia)
How will I know when my child is a reserve?
Where possible, we will aim to notify kids the week before they are due to be designated as a reserve. As this may not always be possible the designated reserves and the project of the week will also be identified at the top of this page. This information will be updated at the beginning of every week. If you are in any doubt as to whether your child is on the reserve list in any given week, we recommend that you bookmark this page (you won't be able to find it by navigating through the website) and check it every week on the morning of the club to be absolutely sure.
Dealing with absences
If your child is unable to attend a code club session, please do let us know as soon as possible. The sooner you are able to tell us the better it is for everyone as it allows us to notify a designated reserve that they can attend the club session afterall. Once reserves have been assigned for the week they cannot be changed. However, if you are able to notify us of an upcoming absence more than a week in advance (before we have issued the reserve designation for the following week) we will do what we can to amend our reserve list schedule to coincide with your child's absence.
