Breaking the code with Bletchley Park

Could your students be code-breakers? This lesson plan by Sian Hughes explores nursery rhymes, nonsense verse and codes through the lens of Bletchley Park and the work that went on there.

Download the resource and enter your students into a Young Poets Network competition in partnership with Bletchley Park, and they could be published in an anthology distributed in Bletchley Park itself. Download a class entry form and enter by 2 December 2018.
