Tackling Numbers

Tackling Numbers

Tackling Numbers is an award winning interactive numeracy programme for young children. The programme is developed and delivered by Premiership Rugby in partnership with MBNA. This five week programme aims to teach 8-9 year olds the importance of number skills in everyday life.

The rugby-themed programme is delivered in schools by representatives from all 12 Premiership Rugby clubs, through both classroom sessions and practical number-based rugby games. This innovative and engaging programme makes learning about numbers fun, exciting and rewarding, inspiring children to both improve their numeracy skills and their physical health.

Wayne Morris, Head of Community at Premiership Rugby, said: "Rugby has long been seen as a social game that unites and brings people from all over the world together. In more recent years rugby's ability to engage with children is being used to transcend into the classroom.

"The Tackling Numbers Programme in partnership with MBNA utilises the power of rugby to promote the understanding and learning of numeracy in a fun and enjoyable way. The classroom sessions are supported by practical PE sessions that unite an active mind with an active body."

John Greaves, Director of Communications for MBNA said "Tackling Numbers complements the efforts of teachers in schools to provide the foundations for good numeracy skills and is giving children memorable experiences that will last them a lifetime.

"Together with Premiership Rugby, we have created a programme that is equipping young people with the knowledge and tools to help them manage their money in the future - and how better to do that than to engage them in mathematics in a practical and enjoyable way, with some of the stars of English rugby."
