Get involved with Number Day – 31 Jan & 1 Feb 2019

23rd January, 2019

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day over two days, Thursday 31st January and Friday 1st February 2019.

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.

Making maths meaningful

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.

On 31st January 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 (football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!). To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1 at least, and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event.

On 1st February we will be running number activities throughout the school, including Teacher Sums, Numeracy Quizzes, Who wants to be Mathionnaire, Get in Shape, Be the Boss and many, many more.

Pupils are invited to take part in sponsored activities such as 5 a-day which involves eating their 5 a day over a week and be sponsored to do so, if your child would like to take part they can pick up sponsor sheets from the Maths office on 28th January.

Parents are invited to take part in Delicious Digits Bake and contribute to this by baking number theme cakes to help raise money.  If you would like to send cakes in, please drop them off in the morning of 1st February.


It all adds up

We’re looking forward to all the fun of Number Day(s), and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise at Skinners’ Academy will make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
