At the Museum of Transport and and Technology
We had a fun day at Motat looking at all the vehicles from the early 1900's to 1940's. It was a very rainy wet day but we still did everything and went everywhere. We spent time with the Motat Educator who told us about using Morse Code during the wartimes and semophore. We were able to have turns with the flags and try to spell out our names.
We learnt a lot about communication during wartime and how information and messages were sent and received.

Trying to write a message using Morse Code
Pigeons were wonderful message carriers and delivers
