Sums and Scrums

Sums and Scrums is a 6-week Rugby themed mathematics programme that uses the sport of Rugby and the power of the Bristol Bears Rugby Club brand to make learning about numbers, fun, exciting, and rewarding.

By integrating interactive classroom maths sessions with practical number-based Rugby games the programme develops the numeracy skills of all children taking part, but particularly targets those who may have become disengaged with learning maths in a conventional setting.

The children will explore a number of problem-solving activities that demonstrate how maths is used in everyday situations and in particular by professional Rugby players. Targeted at Year 4 pupils but with differentiations suitable to meet Year 3 objectives, all lessons are built around the National Curriculum and include prepared resources.
