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.

Slime!

During Science lessons, year 3 and 4 have been learning about states of matter and categorising objects into solids, liquids and gases. Here we are making slime, which is a Non-newtonian fluid as it is niether a liquid or a solid. It can be picked up (like a solid) but it also oozes (like a liquid). A super and very messy afternoon! 

Key Stage 2 Concert

Royal International Air Tattoo

All of Years 3 to 6 had a great day at the Air Tattoo. We watched aerobatic displays from around the world and explored planes new and old. 

Enterprise Project

Hawking class have worked hard to create their own companies. The children could make their own product to sell and their profit would either be donated to a charity of the children's choice or buy something for the school.

I'm really proud of how the children have worked and how well they sold their products after school on Friday.

Science Day!

We had lots of fun at Burford today! We did 4 different activities. We learnt about Ultraviolet lights, reflecting and refractive lights, made kaleidoscopes and pin hole cameras.

It was great fun and hope to go again soon!
