Celebrating National Numeracy Day!

Published: 15 May, 2024

Wednesday 22nd  May is National Numeracy Day – the UK’s only day dedicated to everyday maths. It’s a day that celebrates the importance of numbers for children and adults alike, building brighter futures through confidence with numbers and inspiring everyone to improve their numeracy skills.  

The charity National Numeracy has teamed up with celebrities and experts to create fun and engaging activities that will get children feeling good about numbers so together, we can dance, bake and rap our way to number confidence! We have lots of free, fun activities planned for your children to take part in at school, as well as resources they can use at home.

Number Heroes Competition: We’ll be sparking imagination and conversations about using numbers and maths in our future dream jobs or hobbies by creating our entries for the Number Heroes Competition. See below for more details. 

The lucky winners will receive a £50 voucher for themselves, as well as a £1,000 prize bundle for Wickhambrook Primary Academy.  

One of the best ways to support children to feel positive about numbers is to feel confident yourself. National Numeracy has lots of free resources to help adults, so you can support your children with numbers and maths, and boost your own numeracy skills too! You can access a range of free resources for adults on the National Numeracy Day website. Together, we can get the whole nation feeling good about numbers.
