    Hi Helen
    I’ve worked out a solution to my problem of ‘joining up’ different sprites movements without having to give separate instructions, e.g. “press space bar after …” etc. What I’ve done is add in some ‘wait x nr of seconds’ blocks for my second and third sprite, having timed each sprite’s movements with a stopwatch. This means they now seamlessly follow one after the other once the green button is pressed. So, I’ve now incorporated some cross-curricular mathematics too! This Scratch sotware really does encourage thinking skills, doesn’t it?
