NSPCC Number Day
Jan 18 all-day
On Tuesday 18th January 2022 we are celebrating NSPCC number day by holding a Maths and Art day in school.  There will be a virtual live quiz, Y5 vs Y6 with each class contributing by finding clues by answering Maths questions.  There will be lots of work happening across school looking at Maths in Art or Art in Maths.  There is also an optional homework task to draw Poppy Hellings – see the powerpoint for details.
