Aviva Tackling Numbers is an innovative and engaging programme for Key Stage 2 children, which makes learning about numbers fun, exciting and rewarding. The rugby themed programme integrates interactive classroom maths sessions with practical, number-based rugby games and Bath Rugby is proud to be delivering this project for its 4th year.
Using rugby themed content that connects with real life experiences, Aviva Tackling Numbers puts in place foundations for financial literacy in later life. Aviva Tackling Numbers offers a new way to achieve the National Curriculum’s maths and Physical Education, citizenship and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) outcomes.
The course covers:
- A five-week programme of numeracy using all things rugby to help increase children’s understanding of and confidence in number skills.
- A practical and theory course for teachers to learn the basics of tag rugby to help kids learn in an exciting, innovative way.
- Rugby festivals and showcases to bring it all together.
In our first term we had the delight of working with St Mary’s Church of England Primary School, Timsbury, Newbridge Primary School and St John’s CE VA First School.
Our Community Schools Coordinator, Lewis Palmer, says: “Aviva Tackling Numbers is a brilliant opportunity for children to develop their numeracy and tag rugby skills through a fun environment, the feedback from the students and teachers we’ve worked with so far this season has been amazing.”
