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.

Whittling and creativity

Lots of ‘making’ in our session - from shelters and bird nesting dispensers (we need to keep their nests cosy) to whittling pencils from Elder and finding pretty Autumnal leaves to keep in keyrings.  

The rainy weather made some parts of forest school quite wet which brought the worms to the surface - and caused some children to come up with a new version of ‘stuck in the mud’!!


Today was party time!  To celebrate a successful few weeks we had a party.  Sweet treats and lots of great dancing!  The perfect way to end the week.  Fun had by all!

A very special new teacher.

Today we were so lucky to have a new teacher.  Miss Dix helped us with our expanded noun phrases!

Apple cake recipe

Our apple cake on Tuesday was a hit and we promised we’d share it with the kids.  with Storm Alex sweeping in at the weekend, it’s the perfect time to spend some time in the kitchen with the kids 😉

9oz sunflower oil

8oz golden caster sugar

3 eggs

8oz SR flour

9oz coarsely grated apples

1 tsp cinnamon 

Cinnamon and Demerara sugar to sprinkle on top of the mixture before it goes into the oven 

Mix oil and caster sugar together and then add all of the other ingredients.  Pour mixture into a lined tin and bake at 180 for 35 - 40 minutes.  Enjoy! 😋🍎🍏

Music making

Today we made music!  The children had a great time exploring the garage band app.  Future musicians!
