Fairmead School

Making memories

NSPCC Number Day

Dear parents and carers

On Friday the 3rd February, we are excited to be joining schools across the UK taking part in NSPCC's Number Day. It’s a day for the whole school to get stuck into some brilliant maths activities and fundraise for an excellent cause. Here are just some of the things that will be happening:

Dress-up for digits

Non-school uniform with a twist! Bring in a donation (we suggest 50p) and get imaginative with your outfit. Come to school dressed as a number, something to do with maths, or even just an item of clothing with a number on. Make sure you can move, though, because each class will have the chance to dance at the maths disco!

Maths art competition

Have a go at creating your very own maths masterpiece at home. Hand it in to your teachers at any point over the next week and, on Number Day, the best piece from each class will win a prize. They’ll all be displayed on the day to show off to the parents.

Parents/carers – get involved!

We’re opening up the school from 2.30pm on the day so that parents and carers can come and share what we’ve been up to. You’ll get to admire the artwork, taste the products we've made and witness a Fairmead first…

Gunge the teacher

From next week, children, parents/carers and even other teachers will be able to vote for the teacher they want most to be publicly gunged. Votes (lego bricks) will be 20p each, or 6 for £1, and the children can post their vote into the jar with the teacher's face on it. Voting will close on the morning of Friday 3rd and at 2.45pm the teacher with the tallest lego tower will be getting very messy indeed!

We can't wait to see the outfits and artwork and we look forward to welcoming you to school in the afternoon of Friday 3rd February.

Mr. Pinney and Mrs. Manton-Steer
