Primary Magazine Issue 10

Welcome to the tenth issue of the Primary Magazine.
In Maths to share – CPD for your school, we are focussing on subject knowledge, particularly data handling. If you find this helpful and would like more CPD opportunities for teachers' subject knowledge, please let us know by commenting in the Primary Forum.
Our Up2d8 maths focuses on the opportunities for position, direction and angles within the context of the launch of Google Street View. 


From the editor
In this issue, we consider learning mathematics outside the classroom. There is also a link to the latest Ofsted report Mathematics: understanding the score which is well worth a read.
Up2d8 maths
This issue of Up2d8 is based around the launch of Google Street View in March. It provides opportunities to explore position, direction and angles. With some careful planning, the suggestions given can be adapted for EYFS, KS1 and KS2.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Pablo Picasso, who is thought by many to be one of the greatest artists of modern times. Picasso was a child prodigy who produced complex artwork at an early age. He was well known for his cubist style where things were painted as if seen from different angles. There are several suggestions for mathematical cubist art activities which would make great displays for your classroom. 
Focus on...healthy eating
As Friday 15 May 2009 is Fruity Friday, an annual awareness and fundraising day organised by the World Cancer Research Fund, healthy eating makes an ideal theme for this issue. It offers a wealth of suggestions for mathematical activities for you to develop into a series of lessons to work on with your class.
Starter of the month
Our starter of the month follows the theme of healthy eating, with some fruity suggestions for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. When delivering these activities it would be helpful to have collections of fruit available to enhance the children’s learning experiences.
A little bit of history
In the next few issues, this article will look at the development of our systems for measuring. In this issue, we look back in time to the origins of our measurement of length.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
Following the recent Williams Review, which stated the importance of improving teachers’ subject knowledge, we are including a subject knowledge focus in this issue. Our focus is data handling. For this CPD opportunity, you will find it useful to ask colleagues to access the Self-evaluation Tool on the NCETM portal, and complete the questions related to data handling for the phase in which they teach. Full details of the links can be found in the article.
