Number Fun

“Music has an amazing power to engage children and to activate the brain. Songs are a wonderfully creative way of teaching maths - one that the children love!” (Dave Godfrey, author of Number Fun)

On nearly all of Anthony’s training days, you’re likely to hear him start singing(!), exploring a range of mathematical concepts through some of the most energising maths songs ever committed to CD! These musical interludes are the result of an excellent range of materials called Number Fun.

Number Fun creatively uses songs as a fun-filled and interactive tool in the teaching of Primary Mathematics! It is the idea of maths consultant, and former Primary teacher, Dave Godfrey (BSc, PGCE, MA), and is both a powerful and creative tool for the teaching of Primary Mathematics.

Dave's songs are being used in schools and homes across the UK, and increasingly around the world! Dave now spends some of his time continuing to develop new materials and a significant amount of time is spent travelling to train teachers in the use of Number Fun, and in visiting schools to present Number Fun to teachers and children.

To find out more about the many Number Fun resources, and to hear clippets and snippets of songs, head to the website at

Catch it while it still exists! The NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics) is the one-stop website for all things mathematical. National training courses, articles, teaching support, answers to all you mathematical questions – whatever your mathematical query you’ll probably find the anser at the NCETM’s website. Most useful of all is the highly regarded subject knowledge self evaluation tool, used by teachers and co-ordinators to assess their own level of maths expertise and teaching methods.

Recent rumours are hinting that the site may be closed down in the near future, so click on the link while yopu can and make use of its wealth of support!
