Codes and Ciphers Discovery 

Join Emma and Jack at story time as Granny helps them to find out what went on at Bletchley Park during WW2: how the German Enigma operators tried to keep their messages secret, how they sent them and how the codebreakers listened in to these messages. Who will be the best at understanding Morse code, spotting patterns and figuring out other secret messages? What hidden codebreaking skills do your pupils have?

During this session pupils will:

Learn more about secrets:  about what a secret is, when it is important to keep a secret and who secrets should be shared with.

Find out how ciphers were used to keep information secret during WW2 and use a real Enigma machine.

Use and develop their team-working and problem-solving skills to solve puzzles and break codes.
