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.

Children In Need 2017
Just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for your support with Children in Need this year. We managed to raise £152, which is amazing! We also managed to fill Pudsey with all of the coins.
It lovely it was to see the children dressed in their spotty costumes. Lauren in Curie class won the KS2 prize and Ruby in Kennedy class won the KS1 prize.
Thank you again for your donations, it all goes to a great cause!!
Class full of Scientists!
Today we had a mini celebration because most of Hawking Class completed the Crest Superstar Award. They received a certificate and a badge for all their hard work during Science Week. Our happy, proud faces shows how much hard work and effort we put into all our work. It really pays off too!
Hampton Court for Hawking, Curie and Tu-Tu
Here are the pictures from our fabulous Hampton Court trip! Apologies for the quality of some, the lighting was a little dim and the technology a little lacking! Included are some pictures of the place itself, taken by the children.
We all had a fantastic day, and thoroughly recommend Hampton Court for a family day out.
We've got some marvellous mathematicians in Hawking class. Every week we try to see how many addition and multiplication questions we can answer in 90 seconds. We all try really hard to answer as many questions that we know.
These children in particular have worked really hard and have beaten their last score - Scarlett also got a certificate but missed being in the photo.
I'm so pleased with everyone for their hard work and can do attitude. Keep it up and hopefully soon we will have everyone in the photo.
Start of Science Week
We had a really great start to Science Week! The first activity that the children did was try to build the most stable bridge using 5 pieces of paper and 20cm of sellotape. We looked at bridges like the Ironbridge and tried to use these structures to help us. Once we had built the bridges we tried to test them out to see if they were strong enough. (Thank you to Mrs Johnson for letting us borrow her meerkat). We then went outside onto the field to see the different creatures that could be living under our feet everyday. We used classification keys to identify the creatures and plants that we found.
The children really enjoyed the activities today and can't wait to see what it's store next week!
