This week we have been learning about persuasive texts. To do this we imagined that the government were going to ban children from using SMART technology. It developed quite a debate around the class.
In maths we developed our problem solving skills by attempting a number of difficult investigations involving money. Additionally, we've started to use the formal methods for addition and subtraction.
On Tuesday, we enjoyed our first educational visit to @Bristol. It was an excellent trip as the children learned lots about reversible and irreversible changes.
Finally, in PE, we developed our gymnastic routines using pieces of apparatus. We also worked to play football as a team. The green team managed 5 passes in a row! Extreme Tica Taca football, watch our Barcelona (or in my case, Aston Villa).

Conscience Alley - What will Alex Rider do?
Welcome back everyone! Thank you for visiting 5 Hazel's class page. Each week we will write a selection of things that we have been learning about. So please stay tuned for future learning blogs!
Home Learning - Term 1
This part of the website is about providing you with opportunities for some home learning. We encourage all of the children to read every day. 5 Hazel's challenge is to read the height of Mr Fry. Once a book has been read please bring it into school so we can photocopy the spine.
This website has lots of information, games and quizzes about materials. Please have a go! http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/science/materials/
During week 2, 5 Hazel will be investigating which everyday material will keep a cup of water hot for the longest amount of time. As a class we discussed that we could do a similar experiment based on ice lollies and keeping them cold. Why don't you try this at home and bring in your findings.
