Scratch Programming - for Years 7 & 8 - Technology Mandatory Multimedia.

The resources used here have been uploaded (and modified) from Scratch M.I.T. and are acknowledged as being excellent tools for learning programming.
In the 16 Scratches listed below, there are a number of different levels and students can choose their own level of programming.

Before you do anything, read this link.


How it all works - Scripts, Costumes, Background, Sounds and Copy Sprites and Sprite Codes.

How it all works.

To create a Scratch, first you need to open Scratch, then open a Scratch task and read thefile information contained in the coding instructions, which are a series of screen captures. Then you can create your Scratch.

When you get used to Scratch programming, you can modify any part of the Scratch coding to be more creative.

You can also use Internet researched backgrounds and images for your Scratch files and for your Sprites.

All Scratch files created/modified must be of educational standard and feature NO weapons of any sort and must DEFINITELY NOT feature violence in any form.

There are NO games to be created at school. That's fun stuff to do at home!

It is expected over the term that students should complete at least 10 of the 21 Scratches.
Scratch can also be downloaded for use at home, (Scratch Offline Editor) using the Scratch download link:

There is a ranking level of difficulty to assist in selecting Scratches. E - Easy, M - Medium, H - High. Choose the Scratches best suited to your levels. It is suggested you start with an easy one first, then move up.

The Fireworks Scratches are really colourful!
