NSPCC can count on support from Bishop's Stortford primary school Avanti Meadows
Pupils at Bishop’s Stortford’s newest primary school used maths to make money for the NSPCC.
The 62 pupils at Avanti Meadows took part in a special Numbers Day and raised £80 for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to children.
Head Cimone Brown said: “It was fantastic to see the children so enthusiastic about maths – there was a real buzz around the school. Avanti Meadows is committed to making the world a better place and supporting a worthwhile charity such as NSPCC is just one way we can do this.”
Hazel class had fun exploring shapes outdoors, Maple class enjoyed baking biscuits using estimating, measuring and calculating skills, Oak class used problem-solving and the reception youngsters investigated numbers in the outdoor area and recorded their findings using iPads and cameras.
The St Michael’s Hurst school, built primarily to accommodate families on the Countryside estate and Stortford Fields, opened last September for all year groups. Eventually it will be able to accommodate an annual intake of 90 children, but while it grows it currently has four classes: reception, Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6.
