Plan your Number Day

We know that Number Day 2021 might be enjoyed by children in small groups or class bubbles, so we’ve thought of ways to help support you in ensuring your event can be enjoyed by everyone in school.  After you register, we will provide you with everything you need on our Number Day resources site to make your event a success.

You'll get:

  • resources you can use in class including new games, activities and updated quizzes for 2021
  • ideas you can do in class bubbles and small groups
  • fundraising tips and ideas to help pupils raise money
  • resources to help you promote your event across the school
  • access to teacher resources to keep children safe from harm, supporting your school's safeguarding including a class lesson plan and online safety quizzes for all ages.

Please note: Schools who register after 19 April may not receive their welcome letter and posters before Number Day on 7 May, but you can access everything online. If you have previously registered for Number Day 2021, which was due to take place in February but rescheduled for May, you do not need to register again.

How your fundraising makes a difference

This has been a difficult time for everyone, but many children have been experiencing abuse and neglect at home, increased risk online and further pressures on their mental health. It’s also had an effect on younger children, with an increase in children under 11 turning to our Childline service for help with mental health issues.

“I really want to get out of the house and be somewhere safe and happy. I’m scared that my parents will get angry and hurt me more if I tell someone.”*

"The pupils love it, and it builds motivational attitudes towards mathematics while ensuring all pupils know how to contact Childline if they need it. Thank you."
