Dinosaurs, Primates & Games
April 12, 2015

I’ve missed our ‘dining room table activities’. It feels like ages since we last cranked up the music and took some time to share some time. So, this morning we did: art, table tennis (as you do) and, of course, lunch.

  

‘Land of the dinosaurs’ by Dylan Piper

 

‘Transitions’ by Becky Piper

 

Dylan created his first game: ‘Cat & Mouse’ on the Raspberry Pi this afternoon using 16 steps on Scratch. Actually, those few steps did turn into a few more as there was quite a bit of experimentation with the ‘costume’ options and ‘shrink’ sprite tool… Needless to say, he thought it was awesome, before he headed off to play Wormy, Tetromino For Idiots (which he thinks was built by some bully) and Squirrel Eat Squirrel (where he managed to achieve the status of ‘Omega Squirrel’).

Still need to sort out the audio on it though…

We’re rounding off the day with some comedy and Britain’s Got Talent auditions on Catch Up 🙂
