Welcome to Hercules Class!

Welcome to Hercules Class!

We have lots of wonderful Year 2 and 3 children in our class. To support us within the classroom we have the fantastic Mrs Kearvell. And on a Tuesday we have Mrs Reynolds and Mrs Bostock for music and RE.  Whilst on a Wednesday afternoon Miss Hill will be taking the class PE.

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 within 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 this coming year. We have many exciting things planned and we are looking forward to the Hercules class growing together.

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!

We made it!!!

I just wanted to say a huge well done to all of you.  We made it through this very hard home schooling period!  What a loooooong time it has been!  

Thank you for being so patient with us as we struggled our way through technology and changed things along the way to make things work.  Thank you for logging on and talking to us during teams meetings.  Thank you for following the work we set online.  Thank you for sending us work and updating us on all your achievements.  I am so proud of you.

Returning to school may feel a bit nerving at the moment.  But we are all in it together.  We are all there to support each other.  Be kind to others and help others to get through this.

Can I personally thank all you parents out there.  You have done an amazing job.  Keeping the children safe and working hard - whilst many of you continued to work your normal every day jobs too!  We have all had good days, I have had many bad days!!  But we have made it!  Raise a glass on Monday when they all go back to school.  Or like me, I will enjoy a hot cup of tea, in peace, on the sofa, whilst watching something I want to watch on TV!!!!!  Enjoy!

Thanks again.

Take care.

World Book Day

Thank you to all of you who logged on to teams today and shared your favourite book with me.  It was lovely to see such a range of books and to hear your enthusiasm about what you have read.

Happy reading!

Hurricanes and Hercules Literacy Friday 5th March

Apologies for the slightly late post. Here are the reading comprehension questions for our last lock-down literacy session to finish our unit on the book 'The Pirates Next Door'.  I have attached the book pdf again so you don't need to go back through previous posts to search for it. 

We hope you have enjoyed the unit and look forward to welcoming you back into the classrooms on Monday. 

Best wishes

Author William!

To celebrate World Book Day, William has written his very own book!  And I am excited to hear the next story too!!
