Primary Magazine Issue 14bucket and spade

Welcome to the 14th issue of the Primary Magazine – and the beginning of another school year!
In Maths to share – CPD for your school, we look at beginning the new school year by refreshing our approach to mental calculation.
Our Up2d8 Maths provides opportunities for work on measures, calculation and estimation within the context of landlocked, city-centre beaches. 


From the editor
In this issue, we consider life without the Primary Strategy, flag up a great little series of video clips and give you some important dates for your diary.
Up2d8 maths
This issue of Up2d8 is based around landlocked town and city beaches. It provides opportunities to explore, among other concepts, measures, estimation and calculation. 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 the French artist Auguste Herbin. His work was initially influenced by Impressionism and Post-Impressionism but these influences gradually gave way to an involvement with Cubism, for which he is best known. 
Focus on...
In this issue, as many begin to get back into the classroom, we consider the start of the new school year by looking back to see how, where and when it all began.
Starter of the month
Our starter suggestions are based around some fascinating facts relating to the population of the world and of the UK.
A little bit of history
For the next few issues, our series on a little bit of history looks at famous mathematicians of the past. In this issue, we look at a potted history of Carl Friedrich Gauss, a child prodigy and reputedly one of the greatest mathematical and scientific minds in history.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
The beginning of the new school year is a great time to think about those elements of our practice that underpin children’s learning in mathematics. We are, of course, talking about mental calculation strategies. If you wish to follow the CPD idea in this issue, you will need to ask your colleagues to read Thompson, I. (1999) Mental Calculation Strategies for Addition and Subtraction. Mathematics in School, Vol. 28, Issue no.5.
