Easter Egg Contest Gallery

The Clan Chiefs are hard at work judging the entries to the Easter Egg contest, which will be announced later today.

We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the entries this year, especially given we weren’t able again to have a judging in school thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully next year we can do that again, especially given the amazing work by all entrants this year.

Here is a gallery of our amazing entries.

Happy Easter from Dalry Primary

Mr Bennett’s Tech Tuesday

From this week we will be doing a Mr Bennett Tech Tuesday for those still home schooling.

Compusplosion computers exploding buildegg, blow up a computer, pc, computer, fireworks, explosion GIF

If you want to learn how to make your own apps and games this is the place to learn the skills!

All of these tasks are extra fun things to do, not must complete tasks, so only attempt it if you fancy it after your other work.

My Grown Up is a Robot

Ask a grown up or a big sibling to be your robot for an hour.

Robots can only do what they are told.

Get them to also help you pick a task to achieve. Maybe walking from the front door to the kitchen.

Maybe getting a glass of water.

Or something more complicated like using the swings at the park.

They will only respond to the exact instructions on how to move though. Just like a real robot.

A really tough task is the one in this video about making a peanut butter and jelly (jam) sandwich. I don’t think you should try this with your grown up robot (unless you don’t mind wasting a lot of food) but watching it gives you an idea of how your robot grown up might act.

Was that tricky?

What mistakes did they make?

How will you need to make your instructions?

Then you need to give the robot grown up your instructions. If you are in P1 and P2 this could just be your saying the instructions.

If you are in P3 and P4 maybe you could go further and write them down.

All videos you want to share (no need to do this if you don’t want to) are welcome either in your class tech channel as an upload or on twitter to @tweetsbennett

Storytech

Did you know you can use scratch as a storytelling programme?

You can make your own animations or comic strips.

Try out the story tutorial here https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/?tutorial=tell-a-story

If you are feeling really fancy you could try the audio options too. Find the animations that can talk tutorial here https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/?tutorial=all along with all the other tutorials you could need.

You can use the included sprites and backgrounds or draw your own. It’s up to you.

If you want to share your story then either save the file and upload it to Mr Bennett’s tech channel in your class, or set up sharing in scratch (please ask a grown up for permission here) and share a link to the Mr B tech channel once you’ve shared your story.

Have fun coding Digital Dalry!
