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.

A very special visitor!

The class were disrupted through a very muddy forest school session to go and meet a very special visitor!  

So much excitement and received some great gifts!!!!

Last festive sessions with Hercules

It’s been so lovely to work with Hercules this year; they are natural Forest Schoolers.  They work together, persevere, show initiative and imagination. It was nice for them to have Mrs Hunter join them for one of their sessions and see what they got up to on Tuesday afternoon; she was blown away with their whittling and sawing skills - and how creative we could be outdoors 😊

It's a Party!

What an amazing performance from Hurricanes and Hercules! Well done to all the children and staff, and thank you to everyone who came to join in the fun. Happy Christmas everybody!

Science investigation fun!

Today we had special visitors to help us with our science investigation.  We needed to check the length of our femur compared to the length of our jump.  So we needed some smaller helpers and some bigger helpers!


We discovered that if your femur is longer, you can jump further!


After our investigation we started to look more closely at our skeleton!

Snowy fun!

We had fun in the crispy crunchy snow today.  Very cold, but a lot of fun!
