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.

Sharing our writing

Hurricane class have been learning to write non-chronological reports. Our topic was ‘Wolves’ (following on from our wolf themed fiction), our audience - other children and our purpose - to inform. 

Today we shared our completed reports with children from Hercules class, with Hurricanes children reading their work to a partner or group. Children from Hercules then shared facts they had learned from listening to their partner's report. This gave value to the children's work and supported understanding of the purpose for writing. 

Hurricanes are looking forward to Hercules children reading their stories to them when we return to school after half term break. 


Today tasted our crumbles and tarts! Yummy! 


The last two days we have been using local ingredients and making tarts and crumbles!

Parachute jump!

You may have heard already that I have crazily agreed to jump out of a plane!  Please sponsor me to help raise some money for our school.  

I will be jumping on Saturday 30th October.  Wish me luck!!!  


Thank you!

Autumn explorers!

This afternoon we decided to go for a lovely Autumn walk to help complete our weather books.

We enjoyed kicking around in the leaves, and we noticed the colours and sound all around us!
