Friday 7th May was an incredibly exciting day at Rosecliffe Spencer Academy. The whole school took part in Number Day – a day that celebrates Math and raises money for the NSPCC. We are incredibly proud to have raised £138.64 on this day thanks to the contributions of our parents/ careers.
On the day, the children arrived at school in their best Math themed outfits. An array of math problems were visible and the children took on each other’s challenges. Each class selected a child who came to school best dressed. The lucky winner received a Math theme prize which they took home to enjoy. We hope parents enjoyed seeing all the fantastic outfits on our Class Dojo stories.
Throughout the afternoon, the children took on a series of Math themed challenges. ‘Buddy’s Challenge’ was a particular activity organised by the NSPCC and the children hunted around their classroom for missing parts of a key. Having solved problems and cracked codes, the identity of their locations was then revealed.
As well as all this fun, the children were asked to bring in as many 1p coins as they could. A series of math themed activities were completed with these coins leading up to a penny race in our school corridors. Each class lined up their pennies and the children measured their lengths. The winning class was Buttercup Class with a whopping length of 17 metres and 15 centimetres! Thank you to everyone for your contributions.
Number day was most definitely a day to remember and thanks to your support at home, we have not only enhanced our love of Math at Rosecliffe, but raised a generous amount of money for a very worthwhile cause.
