Today - 13th May is World Numeracy Day

What does Numeracy have to do with the School Games you ask? We can look at Numeracy through PE and School Sport in so many ways - whether it is measuring the distance of a jump for personal challenge, whether it is the time to complete a race in Athletics, young leaders scoring a basketball match or the trajectory that a discus is thrown, to name just a few! On Thursday 13th it is World Numeracy Day - a graet time to make a link and talk about the great Teach Active online resource.
