Aviva Tackling Numbers

Making maths fun for kids        

If you think maths is never fun, this is where the fun starts!

We’re joining forces with Premiership Rugby sponsors Aviva to help children develop their numeracy skills through rugby.

 

Numbers matter

Numbers matter

Shockingly, research shows that 8.5 million British adults have the numeracy skills of a 10-year-old.

Maths isn’t just about long division, algebra and trigonometry. It’s about checking your change in the shop, making sure you can afford something, and balancing your budget. That’s why it’s so important for our kids to be comfortable with sums.

As a financial services company, Aviva knows how important it is to give children a good grounding in personal finance.

Learning through rugby

Learning through rugby

Making learning fun is a great way to help children absorb lessons that will stay with them and that’s where Wasps can help. We’ll be continuing to deliver Aviva Tackling Numbers, the rugby-themed, numeracy programme for eight to nine year olds funded by Aviva.

The course aims to make learning numbers fun using touch rugby to:

  • Increase children’s understanding of number skills
  • Boost their confidence in dealing with numbers
  • Help them become physically fitter.

Aviva Tackling Numbers also marks the first time rugby stars of the future encounter the game. After year two, a whopping 88% of teachers are now more confident in coaching rugby, thanks to this training.
