Last week, pupils at James Knott took part in the NSPCC’s ‘Number Day’ – a maths-inspired fundraising event to support the charity’s ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ initiative.

Pupils were encouraged to come into school wearing an item of clothing with a number on it and during the day, each class solved maths puzzles and took part in problem solving, reasoning and number games.

Pupil Voice, our school council, tells us that Numeracy is a favourite subject at James Knott. The children love to be challenged and like that there is always a right answer, so Number Day was a huge success and we helped to raise £163 for the NSPCC.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part and donated and to our super creative families for making such fantastic number-themed t-shirts and clothing!
