We’re taking part in NSPCC Number Day!

Dear Parent/Carer,

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

Everything the NSPCC does protects children today and prevents abuse tomorrow.

The NSPCC needs our support more than ever. 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.

On average, a child contacts Childline every 25 seconds

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 taking part in Dress up for Digits. Pupils are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it (football shirt, cap, netball shirt), or get even more creative by dressing in a Maths or numbers theme. To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1+. If your child prefers to wear their school uniform for the event, that will be absolutely fine.
  • Pupils are invited to take part in a week-long TT RockStars battle between classes in their year group. They will also get some time during their Maths lesson on 7 th May to compete.
  • There will be other Maths based activities going on during the day, such as a Number Day Quiz and Kahoot Quizzes.
  • Other departments will be supporting Number Day in their lessons with activities linking their subject and Maths.

It all adds up

We’re really looking forward to all the fun of Number Day, and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise at Scissett Middle School will make an enormous difference to children today and help the NSPCC prevent abuse.

Thank you.

Kind regards

N Robinson
