Colourful costumes, activities and games added up to fun at a Dereham school which celebrated a themed 'number day'.

Youngsters at Dereham Church Infant and Nursery School in St Withburga Lane dressed up as number-related characters including a calculator, grandfather clock, number blocks, number fairies and money spiders.

Chloe Cole, assistant headteacher, said the number day was a big success.

She said: "At our school, we aim for all of our children to develop a love of number and become confident and resilient mathematicians. We believe it is important to celebrate maths and recognise how it is used in everyday life."

"The day consisted of children completing a number hunt where they were timed to find one hundred numbers hidden in the school grounds and then place them in order, participate in beat the headteacher maths challenges and apply their maths skills to bake treats.
