Aviva Tackling Numbers
Aviva Tackling Numbers is an innovative and engaging programme for Key Stage 2 children, which makes learning about numbers fun, exciting and rewarding.
Delivered by the 12 Premiership Rugby Clubs across England and available online, this rugby themed programme integrates interactive classroom maths sessions with practical, number-based rugby games. Moreover, by 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, physical education, citizenship and personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) outcomes. Enabling children to progress at their own rate, the programme resources contain differentiated task levels and opportunities for assessment throughout. Aviva Tackling Numbers has been awarded the PFEG (Personal Finance Education Group) Quality Mark after being independently assessed by the UK’s leading financial education charity.
The key aims of the project are to:
- Improve children’s confidence in their numeracy skills
- Increase children’s appreciation of the importance of number skills
- Enhance children’s uptake and enjoyment of physical activity
“Piloted between 2009 and 2011 in schools, Tackling Numbers is proven to catalyse improved numeracy skills and increased activity. With our partners Aviva, Premiership Rugby is excited to take Aviva Tackling Numbers into a new era.
“Aviva Tackling Numbers equips children with the confidence and skills to use maths in a practical way. It provides the foundations for children to manage their money well, now and in the future. Recognising this contribution to increasing financial literacy in the UK, Aviva Tackling Numbers has been awarded the Personal Finance Education Group (PFEG) Quality Mark. We are proud to receive this seal of approval from the UK’s leading independent authority on financial education.”
