This is the third year that the Leeds Rugby Foundation have run the Tackling Numbers numeracy and tag rugby programme. The project is an interactive numeracy programme for young children, 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 the Leeds Rugby Foundation, through both classroom sessions and practical number-based rugby games. This innovative and engaging programme makes learning about numbers fun, exciting and rewarding. It inspires children to both improve their numeracy skills and their physical health.
The MBNA Tackling Numbers Programme 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."
