NSPCC Number Day

Avon Valley College joined schools across the UK to take part in the NSPCC’s Number Day today - February 3rd

The aim of NSPCC’s Number Day is to make maths fun and generate a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards the subject, whilst raising funds and awareness of the NSPCC’s valuable work. 

Students were encouraged to take part in a range of sponsored mathematical activities, which included a cake sale, and a special quiz where students got to set the teachers mathematical class work. The activities ran across all departments throughout the day.

Acting principal, Juliette Baldwin said: “Number Day is a great way to help a very worthy charity and encourage our students’ enjoyment of maths.

“At AVC we are very proud to be able to use our knowledge of numeracy and maths skills to make a difference to children’s lives.”

Jack Beardsley, a Year 8 student at AVC, part of Salisbury Plain Academies said: “I enjoyed being the teacher for a short while, it was good fun and it’s for a great cause.”
