We’re taking part in NSPCC Number Day!
Dear Parent Carer
We are excited to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 7th February 2020. 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 7th February, 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 chance to compete in a ‘Teacher Number Hunt’ competition during break and lunch – where they will have to answer questions and find teaching staff wearing various numbers! (Vouchers for top three student with the correct answer – £25/£15/£10),
- All students will have the opportunity to take place in a non-uniform day and students will need to pay £1 to their form teacher on the Friday.
- Cake Sale
- Samosa and Kebab sale,
- Raffles for two hampers (girl/boy) full of goodies worth over £30 each.
- How many sweets in the jar – student will need to guess how many sweets are in the jar by entering the competition and the one with the most accurate answer will win the jar of sweets,
- Memorising as many digits of pi and the winner will receive a prize (£20 voucher)
To support their involvement in Number Day and to help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking students to collect sponsorship or donations using the sponsorship form below. 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).
Sponsorship forms and money should be returned to your child’s mathematics teacher no later than Thursday 13th February.
We hope your child enjoys Number Day and that, together, we can raise as much money as possible for the NSPCC.
Thank you in advance for your support.
