Self Isolation Planning w/c 20th September

Welcome to home learning. I am sorry to hear some of you are at home, but here is what we are doing this week. If you can manage some of the tasks, it will help when you return. If you are too poorly, then get better soon and we will catch up when you return. 


Please email the office should you need any help and I can arrange to contact you as soon as I can.

What wonders lie in the

enchanted woods?  

What a fun term we have planned! We will begin looking at the Gruffalo and character descriptions before creating a Wanted poster for a creature that may be found lurking in the woods. We will investigate and learn names of trees and classifications, knowing which trees are evergreen and deciduous. As well as this, in DT we will be conducting market research to find out the most popular sandwich filling in Harlaxton school. We might even get chance to make one!



Weekly Timetable - Here is a guide of our activities set out throughout the week


Here are some resources should you wish to further support your child with finding the special  friends in words. We are recapping Set 2 and Set 3 sounds following RWI.

Online stories - Daily stories are vital to support a child's development. We love audio books so we can drift into an imaginative land. Enjoy using the link below. 




You have your logins for Purple Mash and Education City (in your homework books) which you can use as you require. There are a range of subjects that can be explored and learning enhanced or consolidated with. Sometimes I will set 2Dos and Cities for your homework task.


Purple Mash - Don't forget to comment on the blog



Education City - lots of games and activities to use



Our School Values - 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. 


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


Growth Mindset and Well being 


We are continuing to use Growth Mindset to encourage resilience and perseverance for all our children to support and further their learning. Our Collective Worship this term will support this by focusing on mental wellbeing, healthy life-style and positive relationships which links our seventh value of Sharpen the Saw. Further information can be found by following the link below. There is a story and activity below that can be used to support children that are worried and suffer anxiety as a result of Covid-19.
