Home Learning Timetable Week 2

Hi Year 6!


I hope you are all well, I have missed you this week, it is far too quiet without you all heart


This week I have added new activities for you to complete, I have extended on learning from last week and there are links on your timetable to additional learning sites too. Below you will find some video tutorials, some links to BBC Learning to help you and also a rubric and example for writing the final draft of your newspaper report. Don't forget to use the word sheets I sent home to help you and also the writing exemplification sheets, these will help you to assess your own writing and see if there is more you can add. Your SATs guide is also a great place to find examples and help in Maths and English blush


I have regularly logged on to Purple Mash and Education City and can see who has been on to challenge themselves with the additional learning activities and games so well done to you all. On Purple Mash, I have created a class blog for you to leave comments to let me know what you are up to. I have added an ICT activity about blogs on this weeks timetable.


I hope you are all keeping busy and helping out at home too. This is the perfect opportunity for you to show our 7 values at home, to work together to make this time as easy as possible for everyone you love. 


Take care and look after one another.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year  1

What a fantastic Autumn term we have had! The children have worked incredibly hard and have worked together beautifully. I hope you all have a fantastic Christmas and a good break! See you in 2020!

Design and Technology Project

In D&T this term, the children designed a bridge to enable Queen Victoria to cross the River Dee so she can get to Balmoral. The children worked together in groups to design and build their bridges. 

Burghley House Trip

The children had a wonderful time at Burghley House on Wednesday 4th December. The children learnt all about the history of the house and visited the Hall and the kitchen, seeing first hand the equipment used to cater for huge feasts!

In the Hall, where Queen Victoria herself once dined, the children played parlour games and sang traditional Christmas songs as they were told about how the Victorian's would spend their Christmas and also where some of the traditions we still have today originated. The children were also able to make salt dough decorations to take home. 

Fencing with MSP


The children have completed a full term of fencing with our MSP coach. The children have become confident in their use of the equipment and also one to one matches and the rules of the game. 

Basketball Coaching


We have been fortunate this term to have received excellent  basketball coaching from Neil Atkins. The children have been able to improve their throwing and catching skills, excel at shooting and marking and become more confident in the rules of the game. Well done, team. 

Children in Need Fundraising Success!

Children in Need Fundraising Success!  1
The House Captains successfully organised a Dance-a-thon and a Cake sale to raise money for Children in Need and with the help of Gift Aid the total raised was £1340! What a fantastic start to their year leading their houses and what a brilliant example they are when following our core values - to Learn, Encourage, Aspire, Respect and Nurture! 

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.




Rounding Investigation

                                  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.

Friction Investigation

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.
