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 Miss Glenister, Mrs Deegan and 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.

Testing more of our senses!

We tested two senses today. Our sense of touch and the long awaited sense of taste!


We thought hard about how best to describe the objects we tested and some even took a challenge to taste the hot chilli sauce!!

We love reading!

We are really been enjoying reading our Dragon book.  A great time to get comfortable and enjoy!

What can we hear?

We are continuing with our senses topic by testing our hearing. What could we hear? What was loud and what was quiet?

Happy Holi from Hurricanes and Hercules 

Children from Hercules treated us to a short play of the story of Holika and Prahlad before watching a bbc video clip about how Holi is celebrated. We all then went outside to take part in our own festival of colours, lots of fun! 

Holi Celebration: additional information

Following a parent enquiry we would like to clarify to all families - we will not be using water, water guns or water balloons of any kind so children should not get wet (and cold). We will only be using (washable) powder paints. 

If you collect your child by car at the end of the day it may be sensible to bring a towel for them to sit on to prevent paint transferring on to car seats.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.
