House Captains

House Captains  1 House Captains for Romans
House Captains  2 House Captains for Vikings
House Captains  3 House Captains for Saxons
I am looking forward to working with this years new House Captains and their Vice Captains, raising money for a variety of charities, promoting 'Synergising' within their Houses and encouraging the younger children here at Harlaxton. The House Captains assist in all sporting activities and House competitions in school, emphasising our value 'Sharpening the Saw'. They are there to aid and guide all members of their Houses and be a model example of what a Viking, Roman or Saxon member should be.Carefully selected from the applications received by Mrs Edwards, the children wrote outstanding letters explaining how they would be an asset and a true leader. Congratulations, House Captains! I am proud to be part of your team and look forward to an excellent year!

Rounding Investigation


In Mathematics we have learned how to round numbers to a required degree of accuracy. We have looked at the purpose of rounding in real life and how the amounts can change drastically depending if we round up and down. We worked in mixed groups, explaining and reasoning our methods and the answers we came to. Well done, Year 6.

                                  Forces in Action 


This term we will be investigating forces and learning about how they affect us. So far, we have looked at friction as a force and investigated how the different shoes we wear create different amounts of friction. We also questioned why our shoes for school might be designed to create more friction and if there were no friction how would we be affected.

Welcome to Year 6!


With every new academic year comes a new Year 6 class ready to set a fantastic example to the rest of the school. I am looking forward to working with all of the children this year and can't wait to share all of their successes and experiences here on our class page.

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.
