SPY WEEK

Welcome Spies
First, watch the video above.

 

MISSION 1:

 

Your first spy mission is:

  • Create your own spy name. 
  • Make an ID badge for yourself-  here is an example:

     
  • Create a disguise for yourself - what will you wear? What accent will you use? You might want to try a new hairstyle!

Don’t forget to send a picture of yourself to MISSION HQ addressed to AGENT HAT at yearfour@stokenchurchprimary.bucks.sch.uk (Remember to use your spy name!)

 

COMPLETE THE ABOVE MISSIONS BEFORE WATCHING THIS MESSAGE FROM SILENT FOX:

MISSION 2:

 

Can you create your own LASER MAZE? Use wool or string and carefully attach it to a wall/door frame. You could also use a sprinkler if it’s a nice day.

Now complete your LASER MAZE and imagine you have been captured and must escape!

Send us some pictures or videos!

 

MISSION 3:

 

Watch the video above…                                 

Stealthy McGee needs a new SPY GADGET- Can you help?

 

Design a new SPY GADGET and think about these questions:

 

What does it do?

How does it work?

How will it help you?

 

Draw a clear and labelled diagram?

Send us your gadgets!

MISSION 4:

CODEBREAKING                                        

To crack the codes you will need a CODEBREAKER.

HERE IT IS

You can print it out and make it or you can use the powerpoint to move it on the screen yourself (see instructions in powerpoint if using this one - you must be able to edit powerpoints on your device for this to work).

 

If printing please follow these instructions:

  1. Cut out the 2 circles
  2. Place the smaller circle on top of the larger circle.
  3. Match up the cypher (See the newsletter for this)
  4. You are ready to start decoding the message. DO NOT MOVE YOUR CIRCLES WHEN YOU HAVE MATCHED UP THE CYPHER.
  5. Match the letter from the coded message to the outer circle of your decoder. Then write down the inner circle letter to work out what it really says.
  6. Email us the message you decode.

 

THE CYPHER YOU WILL NEED IS IN THE STOKENCHURCH PRIMARY NEWSLETTER FROM LAST WEEK- LOOK CAREFULLY TO FIND IT!

 

Can you decode the messages below? (You do not need to print these.)

 

Try these Maths codebreaking sums too!

(EMOJI CODE ANSWERS)

 

MISSION BONJOUR

 

For your International development, can you complete the French activities below from Madame Spy Reynard?

Watch the video above

 

MISSION 5

 

Make your own invisible ink (YOU WILL NEED AN ADULT TO HELP YOU):

 

Invisible Ink with Lemon Juice

  • lemon juice (any citrus will work)
  • cotton bud
  • paper
  • iron
     

Dip the cotton bud in the lemon juice and write secret messages on the paper. Once dry, iron them (cool setting) to make the messages appear. Put a kitchen towel under the paper and ironed right on the paper. The heat breaks down the acid in the juice and the message should appear!

 

Can you write a message to someone who lives near by? A family member? A neighbour?

 

EXTENSION CHALLENGE: Can you write the instructions out using numbered points, imperative (bossy) verbs, time connectives, second person (you)?

MISSION 6

 

Watch the video above and then go for a walk and practise your spy movements. Don’t forget to leave some invisible ink messages around for others! Hopefully you will find some too!
