Welcome to Hercules Class!

Hello and welcome to the Hercules Home Page! We have lots of lovely Year 3 and 4 children in our class this year. Some of the pupils join Voyagers during the mornings and then rejoin us after lunch. The wonderful Mrs Williams and Mrs Edmunds (TAs) and Mr Drake (volunteer) support us in class. 

I am a firm believer in hard work and putting 100% effort into each and every task. If your child comes home and tells you that 'the work is tricky or difficult,' please don't panic; it is meant to be challenging so that they have the opportunity to build on previous knowledge and develop new skills. I do not give my students work which they can access with ease as this will slow their progress and limit their capabilities. Learning is meant to be a whole of host of things- 'easy' is not one of them. 

I am a huge fan of Prof Carol Dweck and her work on teaching children to have 'growth mindsets.' Over the next few weeks, I am hoping you will begin to hear your child say phrases such as, "I can't do it... yet," or "I have made a fantastic mistake which I can learn from." Promoting a growth mindset within the school and home reassures children that it is 'ok' to get things wrong. This in turn will help them to take more risks with their learning and feel less intimated by challenge. 

If there is anything you would like to discuss with me about your child's wellbeing or education, my door is always open. Please make an appointment to see me after school so that we can chat in-depth. I look forward to the year ahead and working in close partnership. You are the experts on 'your child' and I would really value your input or any suggestions you may have. 

 Thank you, Mrs Kerry Mills

Literacy WB 04.05.20

Hey folks, it is time to practise those tricky spelling rules again today! Make sure you know the meaning of each word so that you can use them in your own writing. Have fun, Mrs M x

Times Table Game!

Thursday 30/04/20 Don't forget to keep those times tables skills ticking over while you are home. For those of you who fancy something a bit different today, why not give this Mathopoly board game a go? Who knows, it may even inspire you to make your own maths board game. How exciting! Good luck- don't forget to let me know who wins! As an alternative, I have set work on the apps and you still of course have the option to work in your Power Maths books... the choice is yours!

PSHE Planning

Hello everyone, hope you are all keeping safe and well. This is obviously a really tricky time for us all so I have decided to upload the Personal Social Health Education planning in case anyone would like to have a look at it.  Hope you and your children find it useful. Stay safe and take care, Kerry Mills
