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.

World  Book Day

After an exciting dance session based around either Where the Wild Things Are or The BFG, we enjoyed a week of work around these themes, culminating in dressing up as book characters. The costumes were simply amazing!

Well done to everyone (including adults) for all of your thought and hard work.

We all thoroughly enjoyed this week.

Sewing Workshop

We had great fun making cushions in our sewing machine workshop.

Book Week Dance Workshops

We all had great fun in our dance workshops based on "Where the Wild Things Are" and "The BFG". Thank you very much to the School Association for paying for them!

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow

It has been a pleasure to have Class 3 at Forest School so far this year; to watch them learn, grow in confidence, solve problems together and come up with new ideas from week to week.

Every week, they go off in separate ways, knowing what it is that they want to achieve; whether it is going down to the pond to see if anything has changed, using every bit of rope to create a seat in a tree, building a den with mates, starting small fires or using the tools.  The other week, a small group of children decided to make a zip wire; they found the resources they needed, and worked together to make it. However, they decided that it was too loose.  This week, they used some different knots and a stronger rope - but there was too much friction for anything to slide along!  So much team work, language, communicating and problem solving; I wonder what they'll do next week!!  

Year 3 Multi Skills morning

Today (Tuesday 7th February) all of the Year 3 children visited Buford Secondary School to participate in a multi skills activity morning with our partnership primary schools.

Everybody really enjoyed the games and races that were organised and we also caught up with some old friends, current friends from Brownies and made some new friends too.

Well done to everybody who participated with enthusiasm. The Buford PE teacher even singled out one of our children as a model of initiative and helpfulness!
