Tucana Class won the Number Quiz on NSPCC Number Day.
Pilgrim Academy pupils raised £232.01 for NSPCC Number Day through a variety of Maths-inspired activities.
Tucana were overjoyed to have won the Number Quiz hosted by Academy Principal Mr Clark. They faced tough competition from all the participating classes, but to achieve victory a tie-break question had to be answered. Fortunately, Tucana managed to correctly solve it to clinch victory (and three boxes of chocolates kindly gifted by Mr Clark).
NSPCC Number Day is a Maths-inspired fundraising event where schools across the UK raise money for the NSPCC. Children take part in a number of Maths activities and are encouraged to make a donation and wear an item of clothing with a number on it. The funds raised from Number Day support vital NSPCC services such as 'Speak Out. Stay Safe', which visits primary schools across the UK to teach pupils all about the dangers of abuse and what they can do to help.
Indus took part in a day of team games, all number related. This included a number poem, Scrabble, and Connect 4. During break, the teams played bean bag throw and active dice.
Cygnus enjoyed Number Day in teams, supporting each other to solve Maths puzzles in quizzes, follow directions along a maze with their eyes closed and they even got in a game of bingo!
Pilgrim Academy Principal, Andy Clark, said: “It was fantastic to see the children communicating, working in teams and supporting each other on Number Day. We had a wide range of number-based activities on the go throughout the day and the children raised an admirable amount of money for the cause. Thank you to everyone.”
