Counting down to Number Day 2013
Join schools across the UK on Tuesday 3 December 2013 for a fundraising maths bonanza
NSPCC Number Day is a national schools fundraising event for children and young people of all ages.
Since it was launched in 2000, NSPCC Number Day has raised over £1.1 million for our work with vulnerable children across the UK, and we thank everyone who has supported us.
The aim of Number Day is to:
- Make maths fun and instigate a positive 'can do' attitude towards it
- Raise money to protect children who need our help
- Raise awareness about the work of the NSPCC
Everything you need to celebrate sums and fundraise
Your school can either take part in one of our popular fundraising activities like 'Who wants to be a Mathionnaire' and 'Musical Numbers', get everyone to 'Dress up for Digits' on the Tuesday 3 December or come up with your own fundraising event to celebrate numbers on Number Day.
Whatever you do, register now now to get your fundraising pack and a link to all the downloadable resources in October 2013. Register your school today .
Curriculum-linked fundraising activities
We are delighted to announce that Oxford University Press are supporting NSPCC Number Day this year and are working with us to develop some excellent maths based fundraising resources for your school.
These will be designed to suit children and young people, have clear links to maths curriculum and to help teachers choose activities that best suit the needs of their class.
Dress up for Digits day
Pupils can dress up to celebrate sums and bring in a suggested donation of £2. They could wear an item of clothing with a number on it like a football shirt, netball shirt or even make a hat with a number on it to wear on Number Day. We have some fabulous fundraising ideas for 'Looking Gr8 for our number date'!
These will be available to download to help you tell everyone about Number Day and the work of the NSPCC, along with celebrity posters, stickers, press releases, certificates will all be available to download to add a sprinkle of mathemagic to your fundraising event
