NumSkills is an exciting programme helping children improve their mental maths and calculation skills while having fun with numbers and playing games, using everyday items such as dice, cards and clocks.
NumSkills Money is designed specifically to improve financial literacy; tackling everything from basic coin recognition to how to work out best value supermarket offers.
Activities are flexible and our tutors adapt them to meet the needs of children from Year 2 to Year 6.
NumSkill sessions are delivered in schools across Oxfordshire in small groups of children by our specially trained tutors.
After taking part in NumSkills, children are more confident, able to use the language of maths, and show far more willingness to engage in classroom maths activities. They also talk about teaching the games to their parents and siblings at home.
NumSkills can be delivered in schools either by our trained tutors or by school staff who have been trained to use the resources. The NumSkills and NumSkills Money activities are also available to buy. To find out more, drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org.

“She tells me it’s a fun way of doing maths which makes her learn. It is a great highlight of her week.”
“Playing games helped me with my maths.”
"I wanted NumSkills in my school as I could see the impact it had on struggling pupils. It's simple, the activities can be used by all staff and it works. Children love playing the games and begin to really engage with number work."
