I will no doubt follow your advice and have an explore of the menus, which I
should have done by now.
There is so much to learn about SmallTalk and Squeak and I am attacking it
from several directions at once at the moment until I settle down at get to
the stage to do some actual useful coding exercises.

Is that really necessary ? The parser is not really that interesting or
complex a problem domain. The System Compiler and VM are really the areas I
want to study. I am interested to looking at SmaCC at some point when I am
ready for it though.
