The pupils and staff at Marykirk Primary School held a numeracy day to help support the NSPCC. All the children went to school dressed as a digit and the entire day was spent doing maths activities, including baking, board games, using computer technology and a variety of other active maths activities both indoors and outside.

Lorna Simpson, administrator at Marykirk Primary School, said: “Number days is a fantastic way to make maths fun and bring about a positive “can-do” attitude towards it.

“As a Rights Respecting school, it’s also a chance for us to show support for ending cruelty to children, as all children have the right to feel safe and be protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment.”
