Year 6’s day in 1944
It was ten days before D‐Day and various abandoned documents, luggage and personal effects were handed to the authorities. Some of these were probably innocent but others pointed to something more sinister. It was Year 6’s job to interrogate the evidence, searching for spies, all the while remembering to ‘keep calm and carry on’. In the afternoon it was all about deciphering and enciphering secret messages being sent between the Allies. The day was an excellent introduction to Year 6’s next history topic: Britain since the 1930s.
