Number Day 2018

Students vs. staff in a Maths battle for charity

Students at Leeds East Academy have taken part in Number Day 2018, raising money and awareness for the NSPCC.

The day was packed with activities and games including Jenga, cards and four-in-a-row. Throughout the day the students challenged their teachers with some maths questions and jotted down their answers on piece of card.  

Students then gathered in the hall after school to watch a panel of pupils take on teachers in a ‘Numbers Battle’, hosted by Ms Steel, featuring games such as ‘Eggheads’ and ‘The Chase’.

After some difficult head-to-head rounds, the students beat the teachers in the final chase round and were presented with medals by Mr Stokes. 

Ms Steel said: "It was so wonderful to see pupils engaged in maths whilst they were challenging all their teachers during with cross-curricular maths problems.

‘The Chase’ style battle after school is still creating a buzz amongst teachers and pupils. The day helped show pupils that maths is fun as well as learning about the charity and the vital work they carry out".
