NSPCC Number Day

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 7th May 2021.

 

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.

 

Dressing up

We will be taking part in Dress up for Digits and we would like to encourage ALL pupils and adults at school to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt, onesie or even a number themed fancy-dress costume). To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1, and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event. Watch this short video for further dressing up ideas: NSPCC number day ideas video

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,

Nicola Butter

Maths Subject Lead
