We are Cryptographers

In ICT this term we are exploring different ways of coding through our study called ‘We are Cryptographers’.  We had great fun making our own semaphore flags and decoding different messages.

Throughout the term we will be developing many skills:

Be familiar with semaphore and Morse code.

Understand the need for private information to be encrypted.

Encrypt and decrypt messages in simple ciphers.

Appreciate the need to use complex passwords and to keep them secure.

Have some understanding of how encryption works on the web.
