History (2 hours)

WW2

We will continue to look at important dates and people from the last 100 years (1920-2020).

World War II was from 1 September 1939 until 2 September 1945 and had a significant impact on the world. Bletchley Park is an estate in Bletchley, Buckinghamshire, England. It was the site of the United Kingdom's main code breaking team during World War II. Now, Bletchley Park is home to the National Codes Centre and the National Museum of Computing. The Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) and Station X, a secret radio interception station, were also at Bletchley Park. The information gained by workers at Bletchley Park was very important for the Allied war effort. In 1939, in Warsaw, the Polish military showed French and British intelligence agents their cryptanalysis of the Enigma. They promised each country a Polish-built Enigma machine. Having an actual Enigma machine, along with how to use it, was a much needed start for the British work at Bletchley Park by Alan Turing, Dilly Knox and other mathematicians.

Tasks can be completed on lined paper.

 

Task 1 and 2: Today you are going to be a code breaker.  Click on the Cryptography PDF to see task 1 and 2.

Task 3: Read the information about Alan Turing on the PDF called ‘Alan Turing’. Then answer the questions in as much detail as you can.

Answers for both tasks will be provided on the school website tomorrow.

Art

This week, we would like you create a self-portrait that shares some information about you. Use either a photo of yourself or a mirror to help form the basis of your drawing.

This video may help you think about how to start your drawing:

On the one half of your portrait, sketch your facial features and create a realistic portrait. You could use different shading techniques. On the other half of your face, we would like you to fill it with things about you. You could draw items that show your hobbies, favourite sports, school subjects, food, flowers, sports teams, books, authors, colours, musical instruments etc. Try to fill the area with as much as you can – you could add patterns too. Be creative and fill it with lots of bright, bold colours. When you have finished, ask someone to take a photo of you standing with your self-portrait. It would be lovely if you could send this into school so we can share them with your new class teacher next year.
