The Prep School celebrated the 20th Anniversary of NSPCC Number Day by dressing-as-digits and bringing in £1 to support this brilliant charity. Over the past 20 years, 3,500 schools have taken part and nearly two million pounds has been raised to help children have a safe and happy childhood.
Following a parade to showcase their wonderful, imaginative costumes, prizes were awarded for each class as follows:
Reception: Eleanor who came as a beautiful Queen of Hearts
Year 1: Lilia who came as a human iPhone
Year 2: The whole class who came in brilliant home-made domino outfits (matching the entire staff team who also dressed as dominoes!)
Year 3: Edward and Alfie dressed cleverly as ‘Astro-noughts’!
Year 4: Daisy who was completely coordinated as a Queen of Hearts card
Year 5: Felix for his imaginative Platform 9 ¾ from Harry Potter and Siobhan who came as an After Eight mint!
Year 6: Gaia who came dressed with all the number facts for Number 6 and Bethanie, who dressed as a mini-Mrs Ross!
In House groups, the children disappeared into four ‘Number Rooms’ under timed conditions, to see which House could generate the most facts related to the numbers 1, 4, 6 and 12. Much brain power was expended and the results are eagerly awaited!
In spite of the wind and rain (and mud), we finally managed to head outside to create a ‘human 2020’ in House groups. A huge thank you to Jack from Year 11 who kindly took an aerial photo of us, with splendid results!
Lastly, a big thank you to all our parents for their support and congratulations to our winners and to all the children for their wonderful number inspired outfits!
