Welcome to our page dedicated to the Daily Rigour, your FREE numeracy newspaper. We provide a new edition every week where we focus on stories in the news from the past week and the numbers behind them!
The aims of our newspaper are;
1. To enable young people to develop their numeracy skills and to apply them in new and unfamiliar contexts
2. To aid the development of literacy skills
3. To encourage young people to take an interest in the news
4. To provide a starting point for all teachers to promote the importance of numeracy within the context of their own subject.
