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.

Human shapes

To extend our exploration of making irregular pentagons with right angles, we decided to go outside and see if we could make them using our own bodies!!

How well do you think we did??

Positioning and turning

Today we took our maths work outside.  We were looking at turning and angles.  We gave instructions to follow so our partner could move.  

We used the vocabulary of left, right, anti-clockwise, clockwise, right angle, forward and backwards.

New teachers!

Today we were so lucky to have some new teachers to hep us through our fraction work.

Thank you to Mr Leroux (sorry no photos of this visiting teacher!), Miss Dix, Miss Cooper and Mr Baker.  What a great job they did!


We have  done a lot of work on fractions these past few weeks.  There has been a lot of talk about sharing food, like cutting up pizza and sharing sweets.

So today we used cake to look at our fraction work.  Miss King made sure that everyone had an equal share of cake after we had worked hard.  We all deserved a sweet treat!
