Half-Term Activity: Morse Code
Morse is a particularly useful code because it can be sent in so many different ways.
You can use it with a whistle or buzzer or even by flashing a light. It can be tapped out or you can even blink with your eyes.
In Morse Code:
(a) a dot
stands for a short signal
(b) a dash
stands for a long signal
When listening to morse code signals, a dash is always 3 times as long as a dot.
eg flash your light for a count of one to make a dot then for a count of three to make a dash. Between letters wait for a count of three.

The answer will be published at the end of half term on Twitter.
The / symbol indicates the end of a word
