We’re counting down to Number Day 2017!

Dear Parents/Carers

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 3 February 2017.

Children deserve an equal start in life

The NSPCC believes that all children deserve a childhood free from harm but, sadly, that’s not the case for many children. That’s why the NSPCC is fighting for every childhood and working to help keep children safe from abuse.

The NSPCC needs our support. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services like ChildLine – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern.

Making maths meaningful

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.

On 3 February we will be taking part in The Great Earlsmead Number Challenges!! Pupils will be learning number facts and times table facts to complete their year groups timed tests. To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for families and friends to support and sponsor children to complete their number challenges. Please complete the sponsor form on the back of this letter and return it with any sponsor money in an envelope to your child’s class teacher.

Also on that day, we’ll be taking part in Dress up for Digits and pupils will be invited to wear number themed fancy dress or an item of clothing with numbers, shapes and patterns on it. To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for a suggested donation of £1, we’d love everyone in the school to take part!

It all adds up

We’re looking forward to all the fun of Number Day, and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise will make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
