Number Day 6th May 2021

Number Day was amazing! The children were given an Escape Room challenge. The aim was to find all the pieces of a key, which unlocked the clue to find Buddy. (Buddy is the NSPCC’s mascot.) They had to solve different Maths problems to unlock the clues about where the key was. The children were very engaged and really enjoyed the Escape Room. All the classes timed how long it took them. The winner was the class with the fastest time. The winner was Year 2, with a time of 21 minutes and 49 seconds. As the prize, they got an inflatable buddy. 

Thank you to everyone for their donations. We raised £147 for NSPCC
