Merry Christmas, a decent rest and all the best for 2024!

2024 marks 20 years advocating for maths through the eyes of children!! We will celebrate throughout the year, but not until January 8th.

PS My son drew this Numberland Christmas tree 19 years ago … Numberland had turned him into a vigorous little artist 🙂
