Secrets Revealed at Bletchley Park

On the Bank Holiday, my family visited Bletchley Park. Now the word going through your head right now is 'What?' so let me explain. Bletchley Park is the home of British code breaking and also the birthplace of modern technology. Basically, it's where all the code breaking was done during World War II!

When we arrived at Bletchley Park, my family and I walked into the first exhibition. It was all about the history of the World War two. We then walked around Huts 3, 6 and 8. They were very interesting and factual but also fun because there was interactive activities. We then had lunch in the cafĂ©. In the garden there was a playground and a giant chess board. Our next stop was the mansion, where we learnt about the Imitation Game, the Oscar-nominated movie - starring Benedict Cumberbatch - which was filmed partly at Bletchley Park. Hut 11 was next which was all about the machines the code breakers used to crack the enigma, the code the Germans used. In there wel earnt how to do it ourselves using another interactive media. Finally, our trip was over and we headed home. Overall, it was an amazing day.

If you want to visit from March 1st to 31st October come from 9:30 - 5:00, and if you want to visit from November 1st - February 28th come from 9:30 - 4:00. For children under 12, it's free, from children 12-17 it's £10.25 and for adults it's £17.25. For more prices visit the website.

I would really recommend visiting Bletchley Park and if you live in Britain, hope you had a great bank holiday!

Filling an empty hole on this blog: Holes by Louis Sachar

Hellooooooooooooooooooooo! I am so sorry I haven't been blog posting, I've got a really big test coming up and I've been studying quite a bit. Also, when I have had some spare time and opened up my laptop I haven't felt like blogging...  But enough of my blabbering on that  I'm now going to give you a post with a book review of the great Holes, by Louis Sachar.

Louis Sachar has written multiple books, one of which I have loved and will be reviewing today:

Holes is about Stanley whose family have a reputation for bad luck, and when he is sent to Camp Green Lake - which, funnily enough, isn't green and doesn't have a lake - it was simply a matter of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Every day he and the other boys are told to dig a hole, five foot wide and five foot deep, reporting anything found. The warden claims that this labour is character building, but Stanley is suspicious and needs to dig up the truth.

I really like this book because of the flashbacks and clever links throughout the story. Also Holes is really gripping, thrilling and when you finally put it all together it's a bit like completing a jigsaw puzzle.

I would recommend this book this book to 8-12 years old who like cleverly written books that are satire. WARNING: You have to persevere with this book until the end otherwise it won't make any sense at all whatsoever and you will go away thinking it's a rubbish book, which it isn't.

I am in the process of reading another of Louis Sachar's brilliant books called the Cardturner, and already it is an amazing book.
