Putting the fun into fundraising with the NSPCC’s Number Day
On 5 February 2016, school children across the UK can get their thinking caps on and take part in Number Day for the NSPCC.
Number Day encourages a ‘can-do’ attitude amongst school children by making maths a fun and engaging topic. Created in partnership with Oxford University Press, curriculum-based activities such as ‘Who Wants to be a Mathionnaire?’ and ‘Be the Boss’ enable teachers to deliver inspiring and interactive maths lessons, all whilst raising money for the NSPCC.
Number Day is for pupils of all ages and abilities – whether they’re super-quick at reciting times tables or are champion problem-solvers, they can show off their skills and learn something new at the same time.
Pupils could also come to school wearing their favourite football shirt as part of ‘Dress Up for Digits’ – any item of clothing with a number on it will do.
NSPCC Head of Schools Fundraising, Denise Derbyshire, said: “Number Day is the perfect opportunity to have fun with maths, with the added bonus of raising money for the NSPCC. This year teachers can challenge their pupils with new activities such as ‘Get in Shape’ and ‘Be the Boss’, as well as old favourites like ‘Who Wants to be a Mathionnaire?’, so don’t miss out!”
Sign your school up for Number Day today and give your pupils the opportunity to learn new skills and help the NSPCC continue to fight for every childhood through services such as ChildLine – the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people.
It would be great to get as many schools in Aberdeen involved as possible and see how much we can raise for the NSPCC.
