Let's Count! Census 2021 (ONS)

Welcome to "Let’s Count!", the census primary school programme for ONS

We are proud to be working with the Office for National Statistics (ONS) on Let’s Count!, the education programme which teaches children all about the census.

Census 2021 is the next national census, in which everyone in England and Wales will take part. In October 2019, four select areas took part in the census rehearsal (Carlisle, Ceredigtion, Hackney and Tower Hamlets).

Let's Count! is led by a team of Counter Cats: Digit (who loves maths), Doc (who loves history), Scribble (who loves English), Scout (who loves geography) and Splotch (who loves art). They make the learning even more fun for the chldren!

Let's Count! is offered it in both the English and Welsh curriculum, as well as in the Welsh language. Please see the downloadable lesson plans below.

To find out more, access the PowerPoint assembly presentation and lessons, plus watch the video, visit the official Let’s Count! website.
