Our Mathematics Curriculum
At Barnwell Academy mathematics is given high priority as a core subject. We aim to deliver a high-quality mathematics curriculum that provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, the opportunity to solve problems and apply mathematics and develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
At Barnwell Academy children develop the skills, confidence and competence with numbers and measures. They cultivate an understanding of the number system, a range of computational skills and the ability to solve number problems in a variety of contexts. Mathematics also demands practical understanding of measurement and graphs, diagrams, charts and tables. At the heart of our mathematics is the ability to calculate mentally.
Children are given regular opportunity to apply their mathematical knowledge to other subjects across the curriculum as we believe acquiring basic mathematic skills equips children for life long learning.
