Welcome to Hercules Class!

Hello and welcome to the Hercules Home Page! We have lots of lovely Year 3 and 4 children in our class this year. Some of the pupils join Voyagers during the mornings and then rejoin us after lunch. The wonderful Mrs Williams and Mrs Edmunds (TAs) and Mr Drake (volunteer) support us in class. 

I am a firm believer in hard work and putting 100% effort into each and every task. If your child comes home and tells you that 'the work is tricky or difficult,' please don't panic; it is meant to be challenging so that they have the opportunity to build on previous knowledge and develop new skills. I do not give my students work which they can access with ease as this will slow their progress and limit their capabilities. Learning is meant to be a whole of host of things- 'easy' is not one of them. 

I am a huge fan of Prof Carol Dweck and her work on teaching children to have 'growth mindsets.' Over the next few weeks, I am hoping you will begin to hear your child say phrases such as, "I can't do it... yet," or "I have made a fantastic mistake which I can learn from." Promoting a growth mindset within the school and home reassures children that it is 'ok' to get things wrong. This in turn will help them to take more risks with their learning and feel less intimated by challenge. 

If there is anything you would like to discuss with me about your child's wellbeing or education, my door is always open. Please make an appointment to see me after school so that we can chat in-depth. I look forward to the year ahead and working in close partnership. You are the experts on 'your child' and I would really value your input or any suggestions you may have. 

 Thank you, Mrs Kerry Mills

Super Science Year 3 and 4!

Hello my little lovelies! How are you all? Hope you are staying safe and keeping well- I really do miss all of you very much! I know lots of you absolutely love science so here is the planning and resources for the week ahead. We are moving on from Light and Reflection to Plants and their Requirements. Please don't forget to email me pictures of your work as I love seeing what you have been getting up to. I know lots of the resources say they are for Year 3 but please ignore this bit- they are for both Year 3 and 4 as we run a two year rolling programme due to have mixed age groups. If there is anything else you need, please don't hesitate to email me. Happy Friday! Have a lovely weekend. Mrs M x

Hello everyone, how are you all? Hope you are keeping well and having fun with your learning at home. This week you will be looking at fractions and decimals so I have posted some planning, links to useful websites and additional resources. As always, please feel free to dip in and out of the suggested tasks- I know lots of you also like to use your PowerMaths books and the online learning apps too. There is no expectation to do everything- this is just food for thought. If there is anything else that you need, please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help.

Miss you all very, very much. Mrs M x
