Can you match each of  the 4 programming blocks to the pattern it draws? Then, for each one, explain what clues you used?

(Thank you to Rowan at London CLC for this idea)

  1. If you like patterns, check out my Spiral-o-tron program on the year 4 scratch page. I have made a big spinning spiral with music and different colours.


  2. Thank you everyone who has had a go at this – we’ll discuss it next week so I haven’t posted your answers, but I have read them!
    Julia & Evan – Congratulations, you got them all correct and gave explanations, as asked.
    Well done, Daniel – you got them all correct but didn’t give explanations.
    Everyone else – well-tried but have another look…


  3. Program 1=pattern 2 because it starts on purple and it changes size.
    Program 2=pattern 4 because it changes colour and it changes place.
    Program 3=pattern 1 because it says set pen size to 2 and it is the thinnest one.
    Program 4=pattern 3 because it says set pen colour purple and it is the last one left.


  4. Program 2= 4th pattern because it looks random and there are random blocks in the script
    Program 1= 2nd pattern because the pen size is programmed to change and the pen size changes in the pattern.
    Program 4= 3rd pattern because it is told to repeat 12 times and there are 12 triangles
    Program 3= 1st pattern because it is the last pattern


  5. it could be a repeated pattern and go on forever after the last block: Turn 150, or it could be a loop of the block define 1, 2, 3, 4


  6. pattern 1 goes with program 3
    pattern 2 goes with program 2
    pattern 3 goes with program 4
    pattern 4 goes with program 1


  7. I think program 1 is the multy colour circle
    I think program 2 is the one one the far right
    I think program 3 is the won one the far left
    I think program 4 is the one ubove program 3


  8. Pattern 1 goes with program 3.
    Pattern 2 goes with program 2.
    Pattern 3 goes with program 4.
    Pattern 4 goes with program 1.
