Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Our essential question this term:


Should equality include everyone and everything?

Spring Term One


Welcome to Week 3 of your home learning smiley


There are a few changes from this week. Please read below carefully so you know what you need to do. 

1. As well as the welcome message and register on Purple Mash, there will be a message from me linked on the class plan - Click on the day of the week.

2. The timetable has new links added now that will take you straight to your pre-recorded lessons AND the worksheet you will be answering questions from. This is so you are opening the right lesson on the right day. Always watch the lesson before accessing the task.

3. You all have a Purple Mash work folder. On the timetable I have highlighted the pieces of work that you need to upload each day so I can see your work and give feedback. You do not have to upload the fluency activities such as handwriting etc unless you need help but these do need completing and keeping for when you return to school. All work needs to have a title and a date that is underlined please.

4. If you are unsure how to upload to your work folder, please watch the video below.

5. Under each day of the week you will find any worksheets you need and they are also linked in the planning. These do not need printing. You can complete them on paper and where answers are provided you can mark them yourself with an adult to check your understanding. 

6. In Purple Mash there are extension activities each day. These are not compulsory. You may complete these AFTER you have finished your timetabled work for the day if you would like to.

7. Under each day of the week you will find a link to an end of day story for you to enjoy. Click on 'Class Story' on the plan


You MUST watch the pre-recorded lesson where provided BEFORE you attempt any of the work set. This will give you the opportunity to hear extra instructions, see real examples and for you to go at your own pace through them so you can re-watch or pause. The pre-recorded videos are added to the plan as a hyperlink, the text will appear blue on the planning page and when you right-click on it it will take you to the correct webpage. 


If you or the adult at home assisting you in your learning are finding anything tricky you can contact me in a number of ways. Firstly, you can leave me a note on the Blog asking questions that I can answer. If you would prefer you can email the office at enquiries@harlaxton.lincs.sch.uk and I will reply as soon as I can. 

Have a great week smiley

Greek Day 15th December 2020

Year 6 enjoyed our Greek Day activities on Tuesday 15th December. They were able to learn more about what life was life was like in Sparta and Athens and enjoy making some of the traditional Greek tile mosaics, pottery jewellery and laurel wreaths. We also had a live teaching experience from the workshop organisers, History off the Page, and were able to ask questions to find out more.

Keeping Active 

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.
