Bennerley Fields School

Nurture. Support. Aspire. Achieve.


Welcome to Hardwick’s class page! We are a Key Stage 2 and 3 class supported by Jonathan (class teacher), Lisa, Wendi and Chris (teaching assistants). We have a wealth of experience between us and looking forward to having lots of fun and learning all about the world around us.

A busy three weeks in Hardwick class!


Hello everyone! The children have been hard at work over the past few weeks, alongside making friends and enjoying new experiences. It has been lovely to spend time with the children and seeing them blossom, both in lessons and during social time.

In English we have been reading the wonderful story by Maurice Sendak, "Where the Wild Things Are", exploring the language being used to describe the Wild Things, to help us before we create our own sentences to describe our own Wild Things. We have a lot of fun reading the story and creating our own Wild Things by going on a Wild Thing treasure hunt! 

In Maths we have been exploring the concept of length and height - as you can imagine we have been very hands on in these lessons, using cubes, footsteps, rulers, metre rulers and trundle wheels to measure, well, everything! Lots of fun and learning - its been brilliant to see the children getting involved and using their Maths skills practically.

In topic we have been learning about the life and discoveries of Mary Anning (the original fossil finder!), what fossils are and where they come from, as well as finding out about reptiles - even handling some real snake skin!

Alongside all of this hard work we have been taking on the 5 for 50 challenge! We have been dancing, rowing, bouncing, running and exercising our way to raise money for our new minibus! The children have definitely met the challenge head on and have smashed it out of the park. We are so proud of them - proud of their hard work, their enthusiasm and their achievements.


Well done Hardwick!


Jonathan and the Hardwick class team

In the Hardwick class we will be following our Bennerley Attitudes to help us learn, be safe and stay happy! We will be learning all of the skills needed to progress in Maths and English, as well as exploring the world in Science and our other topic lessons. The lessons themselves will be a mixture of practical and paper based activities, with lots of visual support and objects of reference to help support learning!
