STUDENTS at Fairfield High School in Bristol, will be number crunching on 3 December 2013 to celebrate the NSPCC’s annual sponsored maths challenge – Number Day.
Pupils and teachers at the school will be taking part in activities such as ‘Dress Up For Digits Day’ where pupils make a small donation to wear an item of clothing with a number on it, or take part in quizzes such as ‘Who Wants to be a Mathionnaire?’.
Schools taking part in Number Day, which is sponsored by Vosene Kids, will receive downloadable teaching and fundraising materials, including comprehensive, curriculum-based resources. Materials have been created with Oxford University Press to help teachers deliver fun, interactive and engaging maths lessons, while raising money for vulnerable children and young people.
Pierre Gerrard, head of mathematical and scientific concepts at Fairfield High School, said: “We are always looking to inspire our learners and this seems another opportunity to do so.”
Karen Robinson, NSPCC schools fundraising manager, said: “By being part of Number Day 2013, Fairfield High School is helping the NSPCC to protect children all year round 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.
“There’s still time to sign up if other schools want to get involved. It’s a fantastic, fun way to get children of all ages engaged in maths.”
Angela Buglass, VP Marketing for LF Beauty, owner of Vosene Kids, said: “We’re delighted to be part of this fantastic event again. Families remain close to our hearts at Vosene Kids and we know that the funds raised by Number Day enable the NSPCC to deliver more services to vulnerable children in the UK.”
