Celebrating NSPCC Numbers Day

NSPCC numbers day: The school took part in NSPCC numbers day to raise money for the NSPCC and be inspired by maths at the same time. The children completed maths activities in their classes as well as having a variety of maths activities to visit during lunch, led by our year 6s. The children dressed up in imaginative costumes. We had fun exploring number and completing investigations. We played maths games and went on number hunts. We also worked collaboratively with our buddies from other year groups and played maths games that we had made. At lunchtime, we took part in maths 10p challenges. A great day was had by all and we raised £170 for the NSPCC. {gallery:NSPCC Number's Day 2023}
