Nottingham Building Society Tag Rugby Maths Challenge

The Tigers Community is looking to continue support of primary school children and their families throughout Leicestershire thanks to club partners at The Nottingham Building Society.

The NBS TAG Rugby programme has been running in schools, offering a mixture of practical TAG rugby fun delivery and classroom numeracy skills to primary education Years 3 and 4, and even during this period where we cannot attend in person, we have come up with some plans to maintain interaction. 

Each week, we will be sending out some rugby-themed Maths activities to try at home so you can take up NBS Tag Rugby Maths Challenge each week.

These are meant to be fun, they are not a test, so go on, give them a go!

Working in the Leicestershire schools, Tigers’ NBS development officers bring a high-intensity fun and physical activity programme which introduces young people to the game of rugby in a safe and easily managed format.

At a challenging time, the input from Tigers has been there to support the great work of schools and their teachers. The programme is designed to deliver 4-5 weeks of rugby activity and finish with a Tigers rugby-themed numeracy lesson to use the enthusiasm for the game to assist schools in bringing numbers to life.

The national lockdown has hit hard and schools closed after New Year, but we are still determined to do what we can to support remote learning and give parents and young children some different challenges to help continue their personal development at home.

With that in mind, the Tigers team are launching a weekly NBS Numeracy Challenge for primary school children who want to do a bit of research and have a go at the problems set by our own NBS education manager, David McDonald.

Don’t worry if you can’t answer all the questions, or want to double-check your answers, you can always grab a parent and talk them through it!

Give it a go and take up the NBS Tag Rugby Maths Challenge.

Future plans

Although we are currently unable to go into the schools, the community team are still keen to book and confirm as many schools as possible for the summer term where we hope everyone will be able to join in the fun and challenge of NBS TAG Rugby.
