Welcome to Hercules Class!

Welcome to the Hercules Home Page! 

We have lots of wonderful Year 2 and 3 children in our class. To support us within the classroom we have the fantastic Mrs Williams. 

We believe that time within school needs to be happy and safe which in turn will promote successful learning. Work should be a challenge in order to build on previous knowledge. Children need to believe in themselves to be able to tackle any given challenges. Mistakes will be made along the way (by us too!) and this is OK!  We need to learn from our mistakes and develop our knowledge to a greater depth. 

We encourage the children in the class to speak out. If there are any concerns or successes, we want to know! And this is the same for parents. Please feel free to talk to us at any appropriate time. Unfortunately time can be limited for parents at the beginning or end of the day, but feel free to make an appointment and we will always make time for you. We are in a partnership to help develop your child’s independence, learning and happiness. 

We look forward to what lies ahead these coming terms. We have many exciting things planned and we are looking forward to the Hercules class continuing to grow together.

Welcome back!

We hope you have had a fantastic Easter break!  We look forward to what the future weeks bring.  

The sun is beginning to shine again.  Lets learn many things and make new memories together!

Easter Egg fun!

Well we weren't put off by the rain today.  We still went outside and found the clues to win two easter eggs each!

'Easter' and 'celebration' were successfully discovered and chocolate was eaten!

Happy Easter everyone!

What a muddy walk!

Well the weather wasn't too kind to us today but we still went for our walk across the fields.  We went armed with iPads and photo frames to capture moments of nature.  

Some children got a little stuck into nature a bit more than others!  Wellies stuck in the mud, slipping and sliding around (sorry for the extra washing!!).

It was lovely to go and get some fresh air and think about our 'Growth' art work.

Thank you to William's mummy and Darcey's mummy for coming along with us too.  And extra special thanks to Darcey's brother Sebastian who walked all that way with his little legs!  What a super star!

Science Fun!

We've been studying plants in Science and last week learned about Plant Life Cycles. The class had fun acting out a life cycle of a plant.  We had to find a space and pretended to be tiny seeds curled up tight.  Then the rain was falling and it was time to sprout!  So they had to wiggle like seeds getting ready to burst and then make a tiny sprout.  We then grew more and more into tiny seedlings.  It was then a beautiful day and we had to keep our roots in the ground but stretched our leaves out towards the sun.  Next, it was time to grow a flower and we had to open toward the sun.  Our seeds were then ready to fall and we had to bend towers the ground before becoming tiny seeds on the ground again.  Needless to say, we had lots of laughs!  

Pirates and Passover!

Hurricanes and Hercules in school enjoyed the last couple of days together with a pirate celebration yesterday for World Book Day and a Seder feast to remember Passover today. The Seder plate helps Jews remember the bitterness of slavery, so as you can see from some of the faces pulled, not everything tastes delicious!
