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 Miss Glenister, Mrs Deegan and 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.

Computing time!

Today we had time exploring our artistic side on the computers. We used paint to see what we could create!

Science investigations!

For our new term we are looking at humans and our senses.

Today we thought about our sense of sight and how useful it is. We tried to carry out a few tasks whilst blindfolded to see how we got on. Reading wasn’t working at all, but by using our sense of touch we could put coats on and attempt to build cube towers!

Hurricanes and Hercules Geography 

We are learning about weather in geography. In our last lesson each class conducted research into different weathers and seasons. This week we shared what we had found out. Hurricanes told Hercules all about the wind then Hercules children shared their research with a partner. 

A very special visitor!

The class were disrupted through a very muddy forest school session to go and meet a very special visitor!  

So much excitement and received some great gifts!!!!

Last festive sessions with Hercules

It’s been so lovely to work with Hercules this year; they are natural Forest Schoolers.  They work together, persevere, show initiative and imagination. It was nice for them to have Mrs Hunter join them for one of their sessions and see what they got up to on Tuesday afternoon; she was blown away with their whittling and sawing skills - and how creative we could be outdoors 😊
