Dear Parents/ Carers,
On Wednesday 23rd March, we are planning to celebrate 'World Maths Day' and enrich our curriculum by promoting number and times tables with our children. Children will be able to take part in the World Maths Day competition on Mathletics - at home and at school. There is no cost involved to take part in this day.
To make the day more special, we would like children from Nursery to Yr 6,to dress up in a 'mathematical way'. This could be wearing a t-shirt with numbers on, dressing up as a famous mathematician, coming as a TT Rock Star with a cool outfit and rock star hair styling and air guitar, or even coming as a calculator or clock! There are many photos on the internet from other schools who have hosted similar maths days previously if you are looking for some inspiration for an outfit choice. Unfortunately, Year 6 will be travelling to Condover on the same day, so they won't be able to join in this time if they are attending the residential trip. If your child does not want to dress up mathematically, then they should attend in their school uniform.
Thank you for your support in preparing the children with an outfit for this day, which we hope will be enriching and exciting for all our children.
