Spring Term - Year 3


Hello  and welcome back to school Year 3,


We hope that you have had a lovely Christmas holiday and enjoyed time with your family.


Our topic this term is Planet Earth and our essential question is - How does weather change?


Please remember to bring a water bottle to school each day, a coat and your PE kit at the beginning of each week. Our PE afternoon will still be on a Thursday. 


You will find our Curriculum overview for Spring Term below and key vocabulary.


We are looking forward to seeing you all.

Self-Isolation Planning


Below is a weeks worth of planning should your child be isolating due to a positive Covid-19 result.  We will aim to call at least once, but if you need to speak further please email through to the office: enquires@harlaxton.lincs.sch.uk and I will call at my earliest convenience. 


If your child is unwell, please do not feel pressured to complete all of the learning. 


Take care, 

Mrs Coupland & Mrs Middleton

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.
