Dress Up for Number Day

Making maths meaningful


We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day which is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.




We are having a fun day of maths activities and we will be taking part in


‘Dress up for Digits’ on Friday 2nd February 2024


 Children are asked to wear an item of clothing with a number on it

(football shirt, cap, netball shirt or even a onesie!) or get creative by dressing in a maths or numbers theme. You can even wear something with spots or stars on and everyone can count them.


To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking for donations, and we’d love everyone in the school to take part in this special event

 Please hand any donations to Mrs Wilson on the school gate



The NSPCC need our support more than ever. By raising money, we can help to fund their
vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young
people whatever their problem or concern.

On average, a child contacts Childline every 45 seconds

Everything the NSPCC does protects children today and prevents
children tomorrow.


If you’re a bit stuck on what to wear, here are some ideas:

  • Mathematical equipment: things like calculators, dice, dominos, clocks, playing cards
  • Characters from books work well and can be doubled up for World Book Day as a cost-effective idea: Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat, Tock or The Mathemagician from The Phantom Tollbooth for example.
  • Characters from TV or films: The Numberjacks, The Numberblocks, Thomas the Tank Engine & friends with their numbers on.
  • No-fuss ideas include wearing a football strip with a number, or simply drawing numbers or calculations on a white t-shirt!

It all adds up
