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 Mrs Edmonds. And on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon the lovely Mrs Rae will be taking the class for Forest School and PE.

I 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 myself too!) and this is OK! We need to learn from our mistakes and develop our knowledge to a greater depth.

I encourage the children of my class to speak out. If there are any concerns or successes, I want to know! And this is the same for parents. Please feel free to talk to me 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 I will always make time for you. We are in a partnership to help develop your child’s independence, learning and happiness. 

I look forward to what lies ahead this coming year. We have many exciting things planned and I am looking forward to the Hercules class growing together.

KS2 trip to Chedworth Roman Villa

On Monday 10th July the whole of Key Stage 2 visited Chedworth Roman Villa to help bring our Romans topic to life. It was a really magical day.

We all experienced being archaeologists by working out what the Romans would have eaten and drunk by studying real artefacts, such as bones, rocks, metalware and earthenware.

We also had an amazing tour of the excavated site and could imagine what it would have been like to take a bath (a lot of oil and scraping), dine, make offerings to the gods, walk along the beautiful and intricate mosaics and use the 'lavatorium'!

In one workshop we dressed up as Roman slaves and were allocated jobs. We had to wear tags around our necks and sacks as tunics. We also ground up herbs and spices that the Romans would have used to cure illnesses or help people sleep.

A lot of fun was had and a lot of learning was done by all!
