On Friday 2nd February, the school took part in the ‘NSPCC Number Day’. The day was all about having fun with numbers, so the children enjoyed a fun packed day of maths games and quizzes to raise money to help the NSPCC.
The NSPCC believes that all children deserve a childhood free from harm. They need our support, by raising money, to help fund vital such as ChildLine.
‘Number Day’ is a great way to promote a positive “can-do” attitude towards maths. The Reception children did maths based activities, Year 4 made 3d structures out of cocktail sticks and midget gems following their Buildings Topic, Year 2 did ‘Robot Monsters’ where they had to add up different body parts to find their robots height, Year 1 measured how far a car travelled using cubes, Year 5 measured and looked at the comparisons between the size of their fist and their heart and Year 6 made maths board games.
The children also had the opportunity to wear non-uniform with a number theme. There were lots of football shirts!
We raised a total of £151.75 for the NSPCC, which will go towards making a difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
Well done Henley !!
