The NSPCC is encouraging schools across the UK to take part in ‘Number Day’ on Friday 7th February. Number Day is a maths-inspired fundraising day for children in nursery right through to secondary school and pupils are encouraged to ‘Dress Up For Digits’ and make a £1.00 donation to wear an item of clothing with a number on it. Alternatively, they can wear something green (the recognised colour of the NSPCC charity.)
Funds raised from Number Day will help support vital NSPCC services such as ‘Speak out. Stay Safe‚’ which visits primary schools across the UK to teach children about the dangers of abuse and what they can do if they need help.
The day also allows us to raise the profile of maths for our children, by doing practical, engaging activities and providing opportunities for them to see why maths is so important for them in everyday life.
Please pop the date in your diary and support us in making the day a success and raising money for a worthy cause.
