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.

Year 3/4 tennis tournament

Well done to everyone who took part in our tennis tournament at Carterton Community College. Fantastic effort and enthusiasm all round!

Science

We have begun to experiment with our bean plants and we have been working very hard to ensure that we are carefully measuring and controlling our plants' conditions. 

The plants that are in very little light in our classroom cupboard are particularly interesting- the leaves near the door are growing and the leaves in the dark are withering away.

We think that this is because plants use light as energy to make food in the leaves.

Photos to follow soon!

Welcome back!

It's great to be back and I hope that everyone had a good break from routine.

Please find attached a letter from the staff explaining our learning topics this term and our timetable. We hope this will be useful.

Visit from Robert Courts MP

Our new MP, Robert Courts, came to school on 6th April to meet our Key Stage 2 children and explain who he is, what he does, and how they too can become an MP or even Prime Minister one day. He answered all their questions and ended with a photo with our school council (who he described as the equivalent of Parliament). 

Red Nose Disco

Our school captains wanted to organise a disco to support Comic Relief. It was organised almost entirely by these four children and they did a great job with their music choices and DJing. Well done!
