The latest resource from Barefoot is an adventure into the
exciting history of World War Two coding. Created for pupils aged 9-11, it's
made up of six 'top secret lessons' for teachers to choose from including code
cracking, researching and even filmmaking!
It comes complete with the following downloadable materials;
lesson plans, presentations, classroom resources, posters, ID reward cards, an
animated film and audio soundtrack – all to help teachers and their pupils have
fun and fully engage with the content of the lessons.
In lesson three teachers have the option to submit a film
storyboard (created by their class) with a little bit of supporting information
the Barefoot website to win The Code Cracking Cup and a VIP trip for 50 people
to Bletchley Park (home of the original code crackers) including an award
winning learning experience and £500 towards travel.
How do schools get involved?
If they haven’t already, teachers can register for free on the
Barefoot website to access the Code Cracking resources here.
Throughout the campaign we will be giving out some exciting
Classroom Bundles: For schools that haven’t already had a
Barefoot workshop, they can request one on the website. We have 150
limited-edition Code Cracking classroom bundles to give away on a first come
first served basis which include; a top secret folder, ID cards, A2 posters,
bunting, a Code Cracking stamp and engraved pencils.
Spot Prizes: There will be lots of opportunities for teachers to
engage with our social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter) and share their experiences
for the chance to win some Barefoot goodies.
