Year 5 have recently taken part in a Code Breaking day as part of their study of WW2. Mrs Jackson recently attended a conference run by Technocamps where she took part in a variety of worshops based around Computational Thinking. Computational Thinking is one of the four strands of the Digital Competence Framework (DCF).
Technocamps provided all of the equipment and resources for the sessions to run. Pupils enjoyed learning about a variety of codes such as the Pig Pen Cypher, the Ceaser Cypher, the Bacon Cypher and several more. In the afternoon, they used their decoding skills to break in to a series of boxes, cracking the codes, solving the clues to get to the final box containing their prize. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed their day and we would like to say a huge Thank You to Technocamps for providing all of the resources and for the training provided.
