Working Scientifically -Trying to knock Rafa Benitez over!
Class 3 were given the task of knocking Mr. Chapman's precious Rafa Benitez figurine over. They identified that in order to keep the investigation a fair one, they must keep Rafa in the same position, (2 metres from their start point) the same amount of water (1.8l) and must maintain a steady flow of water. However, they identified variables as being the length of the guttering or the incline of the guttering. 
Class 3 Vote Using Ostracons!
We have been looking at ancient Greek democracy and have made comparisons with British politics throughout. We decided to use ostracons to elect our School Council representatives, unlike in ancient Athens, where the ostracon was used in a vote to banish or exile a certain member of society!

DT Days
On November the 22nd and 23rd, Class 3 took part in DT days where the answered the question: 'Why does my hot chocolate get cold?' First, we discussed the science behind the problem and decided that we needed to insulate the cup in order to stop the heat energy from escaping. Once this was completed, we designed our cups based on our evaluations of existing products and tested to decided if a lid would help insulate our cups further. After testing materials, we made our designs choosing from different adhesives and materials before testing them outside with hot chocolate and marshmallows!
