Young pupils at Skinners’ Kent Primary School joined with other schools across the UK for a national fundraising maths bonanza today in aid of the NSPCC. NSPCC Number Day is a fun, nationwide maths event for children of all ages that helps raise money to support the work of the NSPCC.Skinners’ Kent Primary School pupils took part at school in a fun Maths Workshop and parents and carers joined a ‘Maths in the Early Years Foundation Stage’ Workshop in the Reception Class. At the end of the school day, pupils held a cake sale for siblings, family members and staff raising £216 for NSPCC.
Says Gemma Faircloth, Acting Head Teacher: “We chose to join in because Number Day provides a fun opportunity to get children engaged with maths and the NSPCC is such a worthwhile cause. All our pupils were involved and we invited parents and carers to take part too by joining a special Maths Workshop in the Reception Class. It was a great way to share learning together. Feedback from those who attended was extremely positive and they felt empowered by their involvement with their child’s learning. At the end of the school day, we held a cake sale which everyone enjoyed. Who knew we had such excellent cake bakers in our school?!”
NSPCC believes that every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. By taking part in Number Day, money raised helps protect children in danger and prevent abuse from shaping a child’s future.
