THE number was up for a Keighley-district school – and it was delighted.

Pupils at Long Lee Primary took part in a range of activities as part of NSPCC Number Day, which is aimed at making maths fun and raising funds for the charity.

Inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore, the children set out to walk a total of 2,021 laps of the tennis courts.

Pupils from all year groups were sponsored by family and friends to take part.

“We added-up everyone’s total and managed to smash our target,” said a school spokesman.

“As a school we managed to complete 4,205 laps.”

The children were also challenged to score as many goals – netball or football – as possible in a minute, guess the number of sweets in a jar and match-up numbers with films.

Pupils also worked in their class bubbles to solve maths puzzles against the clock.

And everyone wore an item of clothing, from football shirts to onesies, with a number on it.

The activities together raised over £1,600.
