Each colour is represented by a number. Change the number to set the colour Using effects to teleport You’ll never know where I’ll appear next! Add a ghost sprite from the “Fantasy” category of the sprite library, and create the script shown below. It makes the ghost appear to teleport when clicked. 1 secs to x: pick random -150 to 150 y: This block selects a random vertical position pick random -150 to 150 repeat 20 This block makes the ghost move slowly, hidden from view change ghost ▾ effect by -5 Using this block makes the sprite fade back in 44 S TA R T I N G F R O M S C R AT C H Events SEE ALSO The brown “Events” blocks in Scratch start scripts when certain things happen.

Try giving me some looping music! Click on the green flag above the stage to start the script ▷ Loops in loops This “forever” loop has several repeat loops inside it. Make sure the blocks are inside the right loops, otherwise the program won’t work properly. 5 secs think I love to dance! for 2 secs Type in what you want the dinosaur to think – it will appear in a thought bubble 47 48 S TA R T I N G F R O M S C R AT C H Pens and turtles SEE ALSO  44–45 Events  46–47 Simple loops Each sprite has a pen tool that can draw a line behind it wherever it goes.

Hard maths Simple “Operator” blocks can do most calculations, but Scratch can also do more complex maths. The “mod” block divides two numbers and gives the remainder, which is the number that is left over. The “round” block rounds to the nearest whole number, and the “sqrt” block gives the square root of a number. 7 Choose different functions from the drop-down menu sqrt ▾ of 9 Calculates the square root of 9 ◁ More maths The “Operator” section has blocks of advanced maths functions that can be used to do complex calculations.
