Look at what Chris’ Class have been doing this week!

We have had a great deal of fun over the last few weeks. We have enjoyed the weather (when it hasn’t rained!) and have been exploring outdoor learning. Last week we were able to visit Guisborough Walkway and loved seeing the wooden carvings, the pond area and enjoyed a play in the play area too! We enjoyed National Numeracy Day this week and are looking forward to the Queens Jubilee Celebrations next week!  

Numeracy Day

Thursday was National Numeracy Day. Children at Discovery did lots of activities including watching the Times Tables Rockstars attempting to break a times tables world record. In the afternoon, classes came together to take part in a circuit of fun maths activities out in the sunshine. Amongst other challenges they searched for hidden numbers in the Forest School area, played number games with bean bags, dug out numbers frozen in ice and found out how many children could fit inside a hula hoop. Even the staff got involved by taking part in the big Number Natter during a staff meeting.

Walk to school Week

This week is Walk to School week. We have been talking about the importance of walking for our physical and mental health and have done some walking in school everyday. Whilst walking we had challenges such as how many times can you walk around the track? What can you see whilst walking? What can you hear whilst walking? The children have been great! 

Explorer of the Week!

Louise’s Class- Harrison, for doing good sharing with adults

Cheryl’s Class- Natan, using words more frequently

Leanne’s Class- Toby, fantastic joining in and communication

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

In RE we have been learning that religions have different stories that teach us different things. We looked at the story of giving a smile and how it teaches us that sharing our smiles can make our friends happy. The children had gave smile cards which they gave to their friends to make them happy. They then all showed me their beautiful smiles. In PE we have been working with a partner to practice our throwing and catching skills using a big ball. The children have been enjoying sharing the text Peace at Last, and doing literacy activities linked to the story.

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

Hanna’s class enjoyed a trip to Saltburn this week as part of our History and Geography topics. We observed the Victorian buildings, cliff lifts and pier. The children enjoyed taking a walk along the promenade and pier before exploring the beach. We enjoyed digging in the sand and making sandcastles. This children also enjoyed an ice-cream. We were amazing when crossing roads and followed adult instructions well to keep ourselves safe while out in the community. This linked to previous learning about road safety in PSHERE. We hope you enjoy looking at our photos from the trip.

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!
