Where could an adventure take you?
This term we will discover some famous explorers who have travelled around the world. We will look at the continents, equator and location to the North and South Pole. Robert Falcon Scott is a British explorer that we will study of his adventures to Antarctica.
Before the end of term, we will go for a hike, like these famous explorers. We will need to be prepared for the weather and what we might need to take. What fun we will have!

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!

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.
Growth Mindset and Well being

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.
