Class 3 update/homework - due in 08/02/18


Thank you all for another great week in school, it has been fantastic and filled with activities.


Year 6 have been trying to work out if Freddie the frog will ever escape the well, Year 5 have been working hard using a number of different approaches to statistics and Year 4 have been looking at the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.


As well as all of this maths we have also completed a science practical on different insulators and recorded some great results - it has been a joy to watch you all working scientifically.


Swimming was also great and it was clear how much effort you have all been putting in over the last couple of weeks - it is really starting to show!!


Keep up the fantastic work Class 3!!




There are two main things I would like you to all to look at this week for homework:


Spellings: due 08/02/18


Remember you will have a statutory word spelling test on Thursday. Please look at your last set of spelling results (these should be on the fridge at home) and make sure you ready to be assessed on these again. You have all improved since we started the year, which is great to see and I hope this continues.


Multiplication tables:


It is really important that you all brush up on your multiplication tables before we start our next set of topics in maths. Please see below for a list of which ones you should know off by heart.


Year 4:


4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables


Year 5/6:


All times tables up to and including 12.


The better you know these the easier the next couple of topics in maths will be.



Have a great weekend and be safe!

For homework last week you were asked to take electricity meter readings in the morning and evening at home. I would like you to use these readings for this weeks homework. I would like you to:


  • Look at your readings and your daily usage - are there any days where you use more electricity? Can you think of a reason why?
  • Ask someone at home if you can look at your last electricity bill, try and find how much each kWh (unit) costs. Can you work out how much you have spent on electricity in your household this week?
  • Its time to save energy!!! I would like you to design an informative poster highlighting ways that you can save energy, both at home and in school. I would like you to use these posters in school to inform the other year groups how to help us save energy.


Also Miss Shooter has asked me to remind you about your English homework

Hockey Team win Bronze at Devon Winter Games


On Wednesday 1st March 2017 the Year 5 and 6 Hockey team attended the Devon Winter Games. It was a tough tournament to get to and many games had been played prior to this event to earn them a place.


Teams from throughout Devon converged at Torbay Leisure Centre to win a place in the final. Throughout the day the team played some fantastic games and with a number of wins to their name, made their way through to the semi-finals.


The team were drawn against Trinity in the semi-finals, a game that we played extremely well in. However, due to a last minute goal Trinity won the game 1-0 and secured their place in the final. 


Broadhempston then found themselves in the 3rd place play offs. This game saw the team give 100% and secured a 3-0 win over St. Andrews. The team were awarded the bronze medal - a great achievement when you look at the number of teams across Devon who entered. 


Well done Year 5 and 6 Hockey Team on your success!!

Science Fun: Battle of the beaks

Hockey League 2016


A number of children in Class 3 have been taking part in a local Hockey League.  The League is held on a Monday evening and will run for 5 weeks with a number of local primary school teams involved. It is a great opportunity for children to develop their team game and leadership skills.


The Broadhempston Hockey Team 2016


Week 1


Great start to the League with a number of key wins. The children formed two teams and played a total of 6 games including one against each other. It was great to see the children getting involved in the spirit of the game and having a fantastic time.


Week 2


Another good evening of hockey had by all. Broadhempston A secured a couple of key wins to take them to second in the league, whilst Broadhempston B also took points away from key games. It was great to see the children working as a team and helping each other out. There were a couple of nail biting moments which had the crowd on the edge of their 'seats'.







London Trip 2016


Class 3 spent two exciting days in London at the end of September. During their visit they had many adventures including a guided tour of the Golden Hinde, a trip to the theatre to see Aladdin and a tour of the Tower of London, which included seeing the Crown Jewels.


The children are currently using the information and knowledge gained in both English and Maths lessons to produce projects that include recounts and a cost analysis.


Both children and staff had a fantastic time and can't wait to do it again.
