A really good day in terms of work done. Matthew worked through all his morning stuff with very little protest today, and in doing so managed to get done more than usual. Reward = some free time. Since we don’t have scheduled ‘break’ times, I really need to remember to make sure he has some! He’s gone from having (at school) a morning playtime, a lunch break & playtime, an afternoon playtime, and golden time on a Friday, to having not very many long breaks at all.
M chose to start a new house design on minecraft, and is enjoying the new horse he got in the update. I also had a look for some safe multiplayer servers to join in. We both looked at Massively @ jokaydia and have sent off an email to join up… Matthew is anxiously awaiting a reply! (update – replied received & we’re in! Will do a little review of it after he’s used it for a while.)
We watched the BBC Ultimate Swarms program which was really interesting.
After lunch I brought out the new Scratch book which lead to some browsing of other user designs. It wasn’t quite what I was hoping for, but at least we’re back into Scratch as something else to do. He’s done a bit with it before, but we’re going to work our way through the book in anticipation of entering a competition later on in the year.
I’ll leave you with a few pics from the day, and some toilet humour… Scratch style!
