Maths @ MHPS
Here at Muswell Hill Primary School our mathematics teaching and learning is supported by a scheme called Power Maths. Power Maths adopts a ‘Teaching for Mastery’ approach and is based around child-centred learning. It provides a wealth of interactive and practical resources to sure that each child masters each maths concept securely and deeply.
As a team of experienced practitioners, we use Power Maths as a starting point to ensure progression but we adapt the content to the needs of our children.
We ensure that throughout their time at Muswell Hill, we enable children to develop their conceptual understanding, numerical fluency, problem- solving skills and mathematical confidence as young mathematicians.
To gain a clearer understanding of what teaching strategies are being used here at Muswell Hill for each year group, please have a look at our Calculation Policy:

To consolidate and reinforce the maths learning carried out in school, teachers are now able to allocate online activities via the Topmarks online homework resource IXL. The children have been given their individual log in details and once logged in can access and complete their maths homework each week.
Staying Safe Online
DLC and the Internet have become integral to teaching and learning within schools, providing pupils and staff with opportunities to improve understanding. However, whilst this technology has many benefits for Muswell Hill Primary School, we recognise that clear procedures for appropriate use and the education of staff and pupils about online behaviour and potential risks are essential.
