The Phoenix Primary School & Nursery, Leinster Rd, Basildon, SS15 5NQ
What a fantastic day we have had for the NSPCC Number Day! All of the children in Nursery, Reception and Key Stage One have had fun filled maths activities throughout the day. We started off the fun in assembly – all wearing our fantastic headwear, filled with a variety of maths related fun on. One child from each class won best dressed and a tuck voucher. The children really did make an effort for the occasion so thank you to the parents/carers for all of the effort you put in to the costumes. It was hard to choose just one from each class! Key Stage One then thoroughly enjoyed having different teachers throughout the morning. The Year 1 and Year 2 teachers hosted a variety of maths activities, with the children rotating around the school; from shape making on geo-boards to playing shops with money. Maths is fundamental to children’s lives and therefore, raising awareness for the subject today has been excellent. We thought about maths in our everyday lives, as well as jobs for when we grow older. Many of us could not believe footballers use maths - counting goals and keeping time! We look forward to seeing how much money we have raised for such a great cause. Bring on Number Day 2024!
