It’s maths, but not as you know it! With fun, free maths resources for all age groups, Number Day is the perfect way to get your school or nursery involved with fundraising and celebrate maths while helping to protect more children from abuse.
The NSPCC is encouraging schools across the UK to take part in Number Day‚ on Friday 3 February 2023.
Number Day is an inclusive maths-inspired fundraising day for children in nursery right through to secondary school, with free downloadable activities suitable for all ages and abilities.
These fun curriculum-based activities take inspiration from famous gameshows, current trends, exciting tasks, and teamwork. Pupils are also encouraged to Dress Up For Digits and make a donation to wear an item of clothing with a number on it.
Funds raised from Number Day will help support vital NSPCC services such as Speak out Stay Safe which visits primary schools across the UK to teach children about the dangers of abuse and what they can do if they need help.
Katie Fudge, Schools Fundraising Development Manager from the NSPCC said: We are hoping for lots of schools and nurseries to sign-up to what can be a great day of learning and play. By getting children involved in our numbers-based activities you can also help us be there for children when they need us most.
There are lots of resources and materials to ensure everyone can join in the fun even if maths isn’t their favourite subject.
The NSPCC is encouraging schools to sign-up to Number Day 2023 by visiting www.nspcc.org.uk/numberday.
