The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) has announced 1st February 2019 as ‘Number Day 2019’, saying:
It’s Maths, but not as you know it.
Join thousands of schools for a mega Maths-inspired fundraising day and raise money for the NSPCC.
Whether you dedicate a day or an hour to being a Maths maverick, every pound you raise counts towards our fight for every childhood.
We joined thousands of other schools enjoying a full day of Maths and raising money for the NSPCC at the same time - we raised £86.
We invited our parents/grandparents/carers to join us in some fun activities in the afternoon. Everyone had a great time, here is just some of the wonderful feedback we received:
"Enjoyed the Math's screen, lots of competition and pupils wanting to get involved."
"Watching how good my daughter is getting at times tables. (better than her mummy.)"
"I learnt how the children learn Math's in different ways - making cakes."
"I learnt how to make vegetable cous cous."
"Loved seeing all the activities and displays. The castle work looked brilliant. Thank you for inviting me."
"I learnt how to make play dough. My son and I really enjoyed it."
"Seeing my son so enthusiastic about his learning."
"We learnt how to make play dough and different ways to make 10."

"I saw lots of children having lots of fun with lots of number activities."
"It was great to see the children playing, learning and enjoying the food they had made. Watching my child enjoy the activities was lovely."
