Our Sale Sharks Community Trust coaches have been out across the North West teaching the Tackling Numbers Programme to schools. One school which was just finished is Manley Park Primary School in Manchester!
Over six weeks, our coaches went to the school to deliver the programme which introduces tag rugby to students and helps deliver mathematics with the context of Sale Sharks involved.
After the programme, the teacher said: "The children were excited to take part in the session and they particularly enjoyed the physical aspect. The Maths sessions were useful for engaging children by linking the curriculum to a context that they could relate to."
