By translating number facts into engaging stories, children are motivated to listen, to think, to remember and to learn. These stories explain counting, addition, subtraction, sequence, time, shapes, movement and simple multiplication quickly developing the building blocks of early years mathematics.

Using number characters like Sally Seven the Sports Star or Policeman Ernie Eight and actions to teach numeracy is supported by scientific research. The Number Town approach is also in-line with research on memory techniques and the way we learn. (mnemonics) Each Number Town character has a recognisable personality living in a realistic environment where math is used in every day life.
