Start Scratching Session 3


Class begins with students opening a new project that they will use to create a Scratch movie. A key idea for this session is to develop the concept of a sprite by creating two with different scripts. It also gives students an introduction to importing both sprites and backgrounds, and will lead on to animation in session 4.

How is it tailored for 5-7 year olds?  

Minimum wait time of 1 second used to avoid decimals – typically introduced in year 3 mathematics  Extra challenge allows for significant variation in ability, from incremental changes to creating a whole new program

What is covered?

  • Importing sprites
  • Scripts associated with particular sprites
  • Speaking/Thinking
  • Further Development of Control (wait)
