We’re counting down to Number Day 2019!
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 1 February 2019. You will have seen a brief parentmail earlier today, please see below for detailed information about what will be happening on that day. There will be lots of exciting activities taking place.
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.
Making maths meaningful and non-uniform!
Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.
On 1 February we will be using fun curriculum-based maths challenges, to help raise money for the NSPCC. Pupils will be invited to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). We are asking for a suggested donation of £1, and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event
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 for the NSPCC will make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate in contacting myself or the school.
Assistant Head and Maths Leader
