Bundles of creativity Welcome! to our March 2021 edition of Bundles of Creativity. Who would have thought we would still be struggling through this pandemic when we started almost a year ago? This numerical feast of fun is the result of partnership working between Artworks Creative Communities, the Anti-Poverty Events Group and Bradford District Credit Union, with great contributions from the Science and Media Museum and Bradford Citizen Coin. A big shout out as well goes to the Stronger Communities Service delivering the Bradford for Everyone Programme for funding this edition. Our special Numbers edition flags up and explores the importance of participating in Census 2021. Everyone Matters – Everyone Counts is a rallying call to all you Bradfordians out there – don’t ignore the Census! The anonymous information that is gathered in and number crunched is what determines how much money comes to Bradford to pay for our services. Plus, it helps understanding of changes and needs in our communities. Enjoy the puzzles, activities and get creative whatever your age, it will do you good! This edition will bring us up to 46,000 Bundles distributed throughout the District by amazing volunteers and organisations. We welcome your feedback, so do get in touch and let us know what you think of it: info@artworkscreative.org.uk

The only prime number that ends with a 2 is... 2! 2 is the smallest and first prime number!

JOKE Knock Knock Who's there? One plus one One plus one who? Yes, one plus one is two!

JOKE There are three kinds of people in this world... Those who can count and those who can’t!

3: Your next party trick… Take any number, and multiply it by three. Then, take the digits of that new number and add them all together. Whatever number that equals will always be divisible by three, no matter what number you started with. For example: (3 x 4 = 12)… (1 + 2 = 3)… (3 ÷ 3 = 1)

JOKE Why did the two 4’s skip lunch? Because they already 8! Four, the only number that is spelt with the same number of letters as itself!


(meaning body of water)

A DIY two-player strategy game, similar to Tic-Tac-Toe, from Kenya 1. Colour in the lake

2. Cut out octagon and stick-on cardboard

The counters represent impalavali – fast-moving water bugs

3. Find/make game pieces

Setting Up: Each player has three game pieces. You could use coins or Lego, as long as you can tell who’s who. The players pieces are then set on three consecutive points of the octagon, across from each other, as shown by the blue circles and green triangles. To Play: Players take turns moving their game pieces one space. A move must be to the next corner, or to the centre (shisima). No two pieces can be on the same space and no jumping! The Aim: To win the game, a player must get three of their pieces in a row, including one piece on the shisima… HINT: There are four possible ways to win the game.


Tally of 5: These counting marks have been discovered on animal bones dating back 30,000 years to the Late Stone Age!

Knock… Who's there? Knock… Who's there? Knock Knock… Who's there? Knock Knock Knock… Who's there? Knock Knock Knock Knock Knock… Fibonacci, is that you again?!

6, 7, 8, 9, 10, then I let it go again… …don’t get reeled in! Never give out bank details, your pin or any personal info over the phone or online

JOKES How do fish always know how much they weigh? Because they have their own scales! What do you call a fish with no legs? A fish!

EVERYONE MATTERS CENSUS PURPOSE: WHAT’S IT FOR? The Census is a compulsory survey of all households in England & Wales every 10 years. Everyone needs to be included whatever your status or circumstances. That’s every 10 years since 1801 (apart from 1941) and the data informs planning for future services and meeting needs. The Census helps when unravelling the past – historians and people researching their heritage and roots use information from past censuses. Census 2021 is organized and delivered by The Office for National Statistics and is independent from the Government.

CENSUS PROCESS: WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? All households (including residential and care homes, hostels and refuges) will receive a letter with information on Census 2021 and your unique code number. You will have got this by now You can fill in your form online or on paper from 1st March. Most people will fill it in online www.census.gov.uk and many in Bradford will have paper-copies delivered. Census 2021 Day is Sunday 21st March – that day becomes a snapshot of society. Census data is the basis of funding for local councils and planning for community needs such as schools and transport. Remember, the census data that you submit is anonymous (names are released after 100 years). You must fill in your household census, but you do not need to answer all of the questions. You can also request a paper copy. You can also get a separate form from the rest of your household if you want to keep any personal information about yourself private Starting on the 22nd March a team of 220 people will be working across the entire Bradford District, they will be knocking on doors and offering to help anyone who has not yet completed Census 2021. This work will continue until the 28th April when Census 2021 closes.

Fill in your Census form at www.census.gov.uk Call 0800 141 2021 to find out when your local Support Centres are open, tell the Census people you want a paper copy, or to get one privately (they will send it to you in a plain envelope). Language Helpline: 0800 587 2021 Text Relay Service: (08001) 0800 141 2021



1. What religion had 6,242 followers in 2011? 2. What’s to stop them selling all my family information? 3. When did the Census first ask people about their race and ethnicity? 4. A friend of mine needs HELP & SUPPORT to fill in their form – Can they speak with a real person? 5. How many females were born overseas in the 1861 Census? 5. 26,564. 4. Yes, Bradford has four Census 21 Support Centres. 3. 1911. 2. Names are separated from the used data and all data is anonymous. The sharing of this personal data is a crime.

NEW QUESTIONS... NEW TIMES Each Census reflects changes in our society, these were all new questions in: 1841 – What is your name?

Census 2021 Day is the 21st March, which is also the first day of Spring. A time of renewal and looking forward.

1971 – Is there a car or van in the household? 2001 – What is your religion? 2021 – What is your sexual orientation? What is your gender identity?

JOKES Have you heard the one about the statistician? Probably! What did Zero say to Eight? Nice belt!


Find these words!

9 is the highest single number in our decimal system. The symbol ‘9’ first came into use over 5000 years ago in India.

Roman Numerals are another counting system that are still used today. In Roman Numerals ‘X’ = 10.

JOKE What do you call numbers that don’t stay in place? Roamin’ Numerals!

The number formed by reversing the digits of a multiple of 11 is also a multiple of 11. For example: 123,456 × 11 = 1,358,016 6,108,531 ÷ 11 = 555,321
