We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day on Friday 7th May 2021.
Everything the NSPCC does protects children today and prevents abuse tomorrow.
The NSPCC needs our support more than ever. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern.
On average, a child contacts Childline every 25 seconds
Making maths meaningful
Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.
- We are taking part in a friendly competition involving schools around the UK for NSPCC Number Day and it’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.
- For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
- All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7AM and 7PM on Friday 7th May – this includes time in school and at home.
- There will be certificates for the most valuable players in the competition.
- In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less
- We’ve set up a payment link on Parent Pay so please donate if you can so we can support the NSPCC.
It all adds up
We’re really looking forward to all the fun of Number Day, and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise at Heron Park Primary Academy will make an enormous difference to children across the UK.,
