Live with Baz

Rocking, Rolling, and Records!

For National Numeracy Day on 18th May we, along with thousands of school children and home learners, set a Guinness World Records title for the "Most viewers of a rolling numbers live stream on YouTube!" Not bad for a Wednesday morning!

National Numeracy Day is a national campaign that aims to boost children’s and adult’s confidence when it comes to numbers. It is a day to be extra enthusiastic about maths and nothing says 'enthusiasm' like an enormous LIVE number roll!

Rolling numbers is a high-octane, call-and-response times tables chant that gets everyone excited and passionate about numbers.

Led by Katya Jones and Bobby Seagull, the National Numeracy ambassadors, we went live from King Solomon Primary Academy. All across the UK, thousands of children joined in live to rock and roll their five times table - chosen specifically for National Numeracy Day’s fifth birthday! We were joined by Nadhim Zahawi, the Secretary of State for Education, who delivered the children a positive message - "Numbers are for everybody, take part, you are on a roll and you are rock stars!"

The minimum requirement set by Guinness World Records was 1,500 views, which was completely torn to shreds by children at school and at home. With peak viewing figures of a mind-boggling 5,494, the Guinness World Records representative awarded the official certificate. Cue the celebrations!

Thank you to everyone who joined us live to help beat the record!
