One of the Year 6 topic in my school is WWII and I wanted to link some work to Computing. Using Scratch I got the pupils to create a morse code keyer example available here via Scratch. The pupils can add sound as well as the light flash.
The part of the project involved the pupils creating a morse code player using Scratch. An example of this code can be found here via Scratch.
Level: KS2 (Yr 6)
Duration: 3 to 6 lessons depending how complex you make these projects
Teaches: work linked to WWII, code breakers. CS and CT.
