Primary Magazine Issue 21string and nail construction

Welcome to the 21st issue of the Primary Magazine. Our famous historian is Mary Boole, our artist is Barbara Hepworth and our CPD opportunity aims to develop subject knowledge in the area of mass. 


Editor's extras
In this issue we tell you about an exciting maths week project in the South East region and give you the latest on the new primary curriculum.
Up2d8 maths
In Up2d8 we look at the problems posed by terrapins in our local environment. The spreads provide opportunities for work with such mathematical concepts as counting, place value, money, measurement and data handling.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Barbara Hepworth, one of Britain's most important 20th Century artists and probably the most famous female sculptor. 
Focus on...
Our focus is on structures, through the structural expertise of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. You will find information about his famous bridges, railway lines and tunnels with plenty of activities for the children to get their teeth into!
Starter of the month
Starter of the month is now part of Focus on, instead of being a separate section in the magazine. The focus will include shorter and longer tasks that can be adapted for any part of your lesson. We hope you like this change!
A little bit of history
We look at a potted history of Mary Boole, the 19th Century mathematician who, widowed for 50 years, raised her five daughters on her own and also managed to make countless contributions towards the mathematical education of many girls and boys which can be seen in the modern classroom today.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We continue our series on mathematics subject knowledge. This time we concentrate on the teaching of mass. It is necessary, before the session, to ask teachers (anonymously) to write down and bring one ‘concern’, ‘anxiety’, or ‘area for development’ relating to the teaching of mass.
