This week Purple Class received a letter asking them to solve a mystery from a football coach. The neighbouring football team have been stealing their tactics and then winning the cup for the last five years. He wanted their advice as to how they might be doing this. Purple Class did some investigation and discovered that periscopes were being used. They discovered that the neighbouring team were using reflections in mirrors to see over fences. Purple Class have made their own periscopes to prove this and show how you can see round corners and over heights. Finally they wrote back to the coach explaining their findings and some solutions.
