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!!
Class 3 have produced some fantastic pieces of art this term which are now on display in the village shop during March/April.
Please do go and have a look at the children's creations.
Class 3 have been constructing Tudor Timelines in history.
Class 3 are currently doing a research task around discoveries made by Charles Darwin during his expeditions.
This week has seen children building beaks and battling it out to see which size beak can collect the most food. The data collected will then be analysed in order to decide if beak size helps or hinders survival.
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.
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.
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'.
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.
Welcome back!! I hope you have all had a fantastic summer and are ready for the exciting year ahead. Please come back and check this page regularly as it will be updated with information and photos throughout the year.
