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 like ChildLine – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern.
Dress up for Digits Non uniform Day
On 5 February 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 (e.g. football shirt, cap, sports shirt or even a onesie!) and we will be using fun curriculum-based maths challenges. 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. Please don’t buy any items of clothing specifically for the event. You can stick on cut out numbers or dots/ dice patterns.
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 help to make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
Making maths meaningful
Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, “can-do” attitude towards it.
Parents can get involved too!
In order to make maths more meaningful to our learners in ‘real life’ we would like to invite parents/carers who could commit to a visit on Friday 5th February to support Number Day/Dress Up for Digits.
Can you spare an hour to visit to tell our children how you use numbers in the course of your job/work? Bring an example of measurement, money etc. if you can but otherwise please just share the importance of numbers in real life and the world of work.
We anticipate 2 time slots for our parent visitors; 9.30am and 1.30pm.We would be looking for you to talk for about 5-10 minutes per group and answer a few questions. If you feel you can help, please get in touch with Mrs Logan or send a note /speak to Mrs Stirling by Wednesday 3rd February.
