"You are fun, kind and always have my back. If it wasn’t for you my dinner times would be so boring. A big thanks to the staff for making sure all the kids were safe at all times and the children always made sure I wasn’t being boring by telling me what to play. Through discovery we grow."

Look at what Leanne’s Class have been doing this week!

The Academy has been having two Therapy Dogs visit each class for a number of months now and this week they came to Leanne’s Class to meet the children. This is just their third visit to Leanne’s Class and the progress seen in the children has just been amazing. Some children were a little unsure at first but they very quickly became confident around Molly and Kayleigh the wonderful therapy dogs: approaching them, stroking them, taking them for a walk around the playground on their lead, and even playing fetch by throwing them the ball to catch. We look forward to more visits from Molly and Kayleigh this Summer term.

TVED Book Awards 2022

These are the shortlisted picture books for the TVED Book of the Year 2022. We will be reading these in the academy with the children and voting for our favourite. We will share videos of these on the website for you to watch and listen to at home. They will also be available for children to choose in our library.

Butterflies Blog!

Children from across the Academy gathered together on the last day of term to watch the release of some of our butterflies.

Several weeks ago, each class received a small dish with some tiny caterpillars as part of our learning in Science Week. We watched the caterpillars grow and eventually build cocoons around themselves. It was exciting to see the butterflies finally emerge within their nets.

There was lots more excitement as the butterflies were released. Some of them settled briefly on outdoor furniture, trees and even staff fingers before finally fluttering away.

Look at what Michelle’s Class have been doing this week!

Year 5/6 had the privilege of working with an Astronomer and an Artist this week. We created art work to recognise the significance of the James Webb Telescope which is currently in space preparing for scientific observations.   As always, children worked incredibly hard and created some amazing space related art work. 

Many thanks to our visiting artist, Helen Schell and Astronomer, Carole Haswell for making our day out of this world!       

On Wednesday, Y5/6 performed another successful song with signs. The Easter service was held at St. Cuthbert’s Church in Guisborough and was another memorable occasion for our pupils where hundreds of parents and visitors were entertained for an hour. The performance followed months of rehearsals with children from other academies within the trust. 

Well done Year 5/6!
