Home Learning


Welcome to our home learning section of our class page. Here you will find a timetable of activities that will be updated weekly. Included each day are activities to reflect what we complete in school. The first is a daily  fine motor skills activity which are designed to help build the muscles in your child's hands which assist in the development and control for writing. There is also an English activity, a Maths activity and another activity. 


Try and give your child some outdoor time too when you can as your child is used to having access to outdoors for a majority of the day. There are a number of links that you can access to support your child's learning or as additional activities if you so wish.


Please keep in touch with Tapestry as a method of letting us know some of the activities you have been up to as we would love to see you all still. We will also be regularly adding story time told by Mrs. Payne, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Whitworth so keep connected.


Keep safe.

Welcome to our class page! 


Hello Reception! Welcome to Harlaxton School.

We are your class teachers Mrs. Payne and Mrs. Harris. We are a job share and teach half of the week each. Mrs Whitworth is our class teaching assistant who is with us full time. We will be using this space to showcase some of the fabulous things that we are experiencing and creating throughout our school year. Please come and see us if you have any suggestions for things you would like to see on here or just use it as an opportunity to see what we have been up to. We are really looking forward to a fun filled year!


Leader in Me

On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)

Growth Mindset


This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.

What have we been doing?



Our topic this term is what wonders lie in the enchanted woods. We have enjoyed activities associated with the Gruffalo, such as making biscuits. We have been on our first trip to Great Wood Farm where the children experienced a tractor ride around the farm exploring different habitats. We indulged in a delicious meal that was cooked on an open camp fire! In the mud kitchen we have used a variety of different items to create a witches’ potion! For our teddy bear picnic, we invited our families in to explore our learning environment, we did lots of fun different activities ending with a new song we learnt.
