NSPCC Numbers Day 2022

On Friday 4th February, the staff and children of Aston Lodge took part in the NSPCC Numbers Day 2022. NSPCC Number Day is a maths-inspired fundraising event where schools across the UK raise money for the NSPCC.

We started the day with an assembly where we learned about the important work the NSPCC does and launched the NSPCC Rocks TTRockstar times table competition. Each class also had the opportunity to admire each other’s fabulous ‘maths-related’ outfits which ranged from favourite football tops to dressing as one of the Numberblocks!

During the day, each class had an amazing time exploring maths whether it be through outdoor learning, looking at Fibonacci numbers and Fibonacci spirals found in nature, or playing a range of maths games including ‘Code-breaking’ and ‘Escape Room Maths Investigations’.

This year all classes from Ash to Sycamore ( year 1-6) took part in the time’s tables competition. Many children from Ash class played on TTRockstars for the very first time and absolutely loved it. The enthusiasm for maths in our school is truly fantastic and we are so proud of all the children’s achievements. More news on the top winners from each class coming soon.

Thank you to all our amazing parents and carers for their support with costumes and their kind donations to the NSPCC.
