A marvellous mathematical day was enjoyed by all on NSPCC Number Day. Prep School children raised a fabulous £144.90 for this important charity by bringing in £1 and ‘Dressing in Digits’. Following a parade to showcase their creative and imaginative costumes, prizes were awarded for each class as follows:
|Reception||The whole class for coming as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs|
|Year 1||Devon in a rainbow coloured Number 1|
|Year 2||Eva as a black domino|
|Year 3||Ana Clara wearing velcro Maths games|
Teigan as a strawberry (one of your five a day!) and Thomas as a 118 character
Joshua for his amusing binary t-shirt and Luke for his homemade sports strip
Maddison for her superb human calculator
The children had great fun creating a ‘human 2019’ in their House groups and then disappeared into ‘Number Rooms’ under timed conditions to see which house could generate the most ideas linked to a particular number. Much brain power was expended and the results are eagerly awaited.
A big thank you to our parents for their support and congratulations to our winners and to all the children for their wonderful number inspired outfits.
