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 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.

Egyptian cooking

For our history project of Egyptians we have been looking at how they lived and what their lives were like.

We enjoyed making Egyptian Honey Cakes.  But the taste of them wasn't quite to everyones liking!!

More Science fun!!!

Science Fun!!

Wow, what a day.  Today we went to the Science Museum in Oxford and had such a fantastic day!

We had a chance to explore, investigate and question scientific concepts.  We tested heat, electric circuits, floating and sinking, gravity, weight and forces to name but a few!!

We have come away with so many amazing memories and many things to think about to develop our scientific minds.


Today we continued with our work on fractions.  We played a game of dominoes matching the the number fractions with the picture fractions.

After we had completed the game we made our own!

This was a great challenge for everyone!

Science investigation

Hercules class have been real scientists recently.  The topic in science at the moment is plants.  We have set up an experiment looking at how the coloured water effects the flowers.

Flowers have been put into coloured water and left in different places with different temperatures.  We are doing daily observations to see how the flowers are changing.
