Hidden runes

We’ve been trying to solve secret messages this afternoon! First of all, we learned about runes, the alphabet used by the Saxons and wrote out our names in the funny looking letters. Then we wrote a secret rune message in candle wax so that you couldn’t see it and gave it to a partner. The partner then had to wash it with paint to reveal what was written…and after all that they had to decode the runes to read the message!
