Acton CE Primary Academy is taking part in Let's Count! an exciting new schools programme about Census 2021.
The aim is to teach children about the importance of the census, which next takes place on Sunday 21 March 2021.
On our special "Let's Count day" on Tues 16th March, the children will count things around their school or local area and collect data on any subject that matters to them. They will then use the information gathered to make a display to enter the Let's Count! competition. Prizes will go to the best entries, with the winning school getting £1,000 worth of equipment. The winning school will also announce the Census 2021 population of England and Wales for the first time.
We think it will be a really fun and informative day for the children! Watch this space to see some of the data we collect in our classes this week....
