  • Jubilee Celebrations - Thursday 26th May

    Published 23/05/22

    Dear Parents/ Guardians,

     

    On Thursday 26th May, Danesholme Junior Academy will be celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. We have planned an exciting, fun filled day for all the children in the academy. Children can wear red, white and blue instead of uniform.

     

    As part of our special day, we are carrying out several competitions. There is an art competition for each year group to do at home, where the winning design will be sent to Buckingham Palace.

     

    There will be a bake off held after lunch, for which we are asking children to bake a jubilee cake(s) at home and bring it in. The cakes will be judged, and the winner will get a baking book to take home with them.

     

    In the afternoon, we will be having a whole school picnic on the field, where children can enjoy their cakes. Please send your child with an extra drink for the picnic and another snack (if you would like to).

     

     

    Yours sincerely.

    Miss Woolley and Miss Watson

  • TT Rockstars dress up day - Friday 1st April

    Published 10/03/22

    On Friday 1st April 2022 we will be launching Times Tables Rock Stars at Danesholme Infant & Junior Academy. To engage the children and celebrate the launch, we would like the children to come to school dressed as a Rock Star.

     

     

    Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables! When it comes to times tables, speed and accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations.

     

    The children will practice their time tables three time a week following the Times Tables Rock Stars scheme and carryout an assessment every six weeks. Each week we will celebrate the children’s improvements and add their photo to the Rock Stars Hall of fame.

     

    The children will be issued with a user name and password so that they are able to visit play.ttrockstars.com and play time tables games and practice answering times tables at speed.

     

    Yours sincerely

     

    Mr M York

    Maths Lead
