I'm trying to do a slider with jQuery

I have a bit of troubles, when I hit the previous button it's suppose to go to the last slide if i'm on the first. (It works with the next button but not with the previous) Anyone knows what's wrong?

  // Previous button is clicked
  $('span.prev').on('click', function() {
    // remove class to current item and add class oldActive to know this was the last slide shown
    // if oldActive was the last-child go to the first one
    if ( $('.oldActive').is(':first-child') ) {
    } else {
      // if oldActive was not the last-child, then add class to the previous one
    // Clear oldActive class

Here is the pen http://codepen.io/Jesusz0r/pen/mVdxEL?editors=101

It appears you were able to get it working in the CodePen.
