Key Features of our Mathematics Curriculum

At Whinmoor St Paul’s our children learn important concepts and can make connections within mathematics. They develop a range of skills in using and applying mathematics. They are able to work independently and cooperatively and take the initiative in solving problems. Children think for themselves and are willing to try when faced with challenges. They love to learn from mistakes and false starts.

When investigating mathematically, most of our children are able to reason, generalise and make sense of solutions. They are generally fluent in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques. They use mathematical language and symbols accurately in their work and in discussing their work with others.

Most importantly children at WSP enjoy the subject and develop a lifelong love of mathematics!
