Dear Parent / Carer
We are excited to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 18th June. Number Day is a fun-packed nation-wide event, where schools take part in a range of exciting maths activities to raise money and make a real difference to the lives of vulnerable children across the UK.
This year, on Friday 18th June, your child will be taking part in:
- Tutor time activities that involve mathematics challenges and an exploration into the work of the NSPCC and ChildLine,
- A ‘Who Wants to be a Mathionaire’ competition during one of their mathematics lessons (years 7-10),
- All students will have the opportunity to take part in a non-uniform day and students will need to pay £1 to their form teacher on Friday 18th June,
- Raffles for two hampers (girl/boy) full of goodies worth over £40 each,
- Memorising as many digits of pi and the winner will receive a prize (voucher)
Students will be able to purchase raffle tickets during the week leading up to the draw on Friday 18th June.
To support their involvement in Number Day and to help raise money for the NSPCC, please ensure your child brings in the correct money for activities they would like to be involved in. The NSPCC urgently needs funds to protect even more children from abuse and neglect. With your help and by your child taking part in Number Day, we can raise awareness about the NSPCC and ensure that they can continue to be there through its projects and services (including ChildLine – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people in distress or danger, as well as the NSPCC’s helpline for adults who are concerned about a child).
Thank you in advance for your support.
