The Mathematics Department and year 8 pupils were delighted to support the NSPCC by taking part in NSPCC Number Day.
This proved to be a great way to make Maths fun! During lessons in the week 1st– 5th December, pupils attempted fun Maths challenges and we also ran lunchtime activities to mark the event. Parents didn’t escape either as the year 8s brought home a few Maths teasers to try with their families!
Pupil feedback was great and we hope to make Number Day an annual event!
Comments from year 8 pupils:
- “Although I didn’t win, I really enjoyed trying”
- “I really enjoyed NSPCC Number Day…you got to move around the classroom and work in pairs”
- “The questions really made us think”
- “I hope we do it again next year”
- ” I rate the day 11/10″
