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 and Mrs Deegan. 

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.

Exploring Forest School

The children enjoyed exploring the site and spotting new additions from our Forest School shed and mud painting wall to another mud area with pretend fire and marshmallows to spark imaginations.  The children drew with blackberry ink, sawed and drilled cookies, played on the drums and loved creating in the mud kitchen.  

Welcome back to the Hercules class!!

What a great first day back we all had.  It was so lovely to get all the year 3 children back together, and to welcome some years 2's too!

We did a lot of work all abut ourselves, got our fantastic maths heads back on and started our new science topic of looking at materials.

And the most important thing is that we had smiles all round!

Year 1 & 2 Balloon Buggies

Here are our final, completed buggies. 

Art / DT days

To end the term we have had two art / DT days.

We had the exciting task of making a moving toy using pneumatics.  We based the toy design on our recent ancient Egypt topic.  We used air power to make things move, by using tubing and syringes.

Throughout the whole project the children needed to have perseverance and be prepared to change their thoughts and designs along the way to make sure it worked.  We had smiles all round in the end!

Year 1 & 2 Design and Technology Balloon Buggies Day 2 Part 1

The first job of the day was to paint the base of our buggies, using the designs created yesterday. Some children chose to adapt and improve their designs, everyone thought carefully and they all looked spectacular. 

We left the hot classroom and went to enjoy our snack and story outside whilst the painted buggies dried in the sunshine.
