Year 6 Learn Semaphore
13 September 2021 (by Head Admin (headteacher))
Year 6 have investigated how different technologies can be used for communication.
During our whole school focus of science in stories using the text Rapunzal, Year 6 investigated how different technologies can be used for communication. The children decided that a quick and efficient way to get a message to and from Rapunzal was to use the signalling system called 'Semaphore'. The 'Semaphore' flag signalling system is an alphabet signalling system based on the waving of a pair of hand-held flags in a particular pattern. The children made their own flags and then learnt some of the signals before going outside to send messages across the playground.
