We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 7 February 2020.

Children deserve an equal start in life

The NSPCC believes that all children deserve a childhood free from harm but, sadly, that’s not the case for many children. That’s why the NSPCC is fighting for every childhood and working to help keep children safe from abuse.

The NSPCC needs our support. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern and the NSPCC Speak out Stay safe Programme which aims to equip a generation of children with the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect through delivery of assemblies and workshops in schools.

Making maths meaningful

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.

We will be having lots of maths and number fun at school to raise money to support the NSPCC and the Year Group Teachers are all planning lots of exciting activities.

We will be taking part in Dress up for Digits and pupils will be invited to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £2, and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event. We will also be taking part in Class Penny Wars! From Monday 3rd February each class will have a jar in their classroom where children can deposit 1ps and 2ps. At the end of the week the totals will be counted and the Penny Wars Class Winner revealed!

It all adds up

We’re looking forward to all the fun of Number Day, and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise will make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.

Thank you.

 

Best wishes,

Rachel Mustoe

Maths Lead.
