Mathematics

Miss Harris 

At Barnwood Primary School Mathematics is recognised as a vital and essential part of the curriculum. We believe that Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand, change and explain the world in which they live. We teach Mathematics to encourage pupils to have a positive attitude towards the subject and to be confident when using and applying their knowledge and skills.

National Numeracy Strategy (NNS)

In order to teach the requirements of the NNS we teach Mathematics through a carefully planned structure based upon four key principles:

  • a dedicated Mathematics lesson each day for every class;
  • direct teaching and interactive oral work with the whole class and in groups;
  • an emphasis on mental calculations;
  • controlled differentiation during group work, with all children doing work linked to a common mathematical topic.

The National Numeracy Strategy can be seen here
