National Numeracy Day- Wednesday 22nd May

Wednesday 22 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 that can be used at home to celebrate this fantastic day!

We want to spread the word at SMFR the importance of numbers and we see this is as fantastic opportunity to get children thinking about why numbers are important and where we use them in everyday life! We would like everyone to try and get involved by completing an activity from the National Numeracy Charity and complete it over half term! 

You can:

  • Get dancing with Katya Jones and CBeebies Numberblocks (for 3-6 years)
  • Complete the National Numeracy Day Competition entry
  • Make maths fun by creating your own rap with Harry Baker
  • Bake tasty treats with Peter Sawkins
  • Check out Rachel Riley’s number confidence tips
