Primary Magazine Issue 23bird illustration in the style of Inuit art

Welcome to the 23rd issue of the Primary Magazine. Our famous historian is Sir Isaac Newton, our focus is on postage stamps and our CPD opportunity aims to develop subject knowledge in the area of addition. We are also pleased to introduce a new series of articles on the use of ICT in the classroom. 


Editor's extras
In this issue, we tell you about the Numbers Count strategy from a Numbers Count teacher, give some taster information about a couple of transition projects and tell you about some of the great workshops at the BCME conference.
It's in the News!
The feature ‘Up2d8’ has been replaced with ‘It's in the News!’ In this issue, as it is fast approaching, we feature the World Cup. The slides provide opportunities for work with such mathematical concepts as time and calculation.
The Art of Mathematics
The art of the Inuits: a culturally similar indigenous people who live in the Arctic regions of the United States, Canada, Russia and Denmark. 
Focus on...
This year will mark the 170th anniversary of the release of the Penny Black, the world’s first adhesive postage stamp. So, our focus is on…stamps!
A little bit of history
In this issue, we look at a potted history of Sir Isaac Newton, mathematician, physicist, astronomer, alchemist, philosopher and theologian, who is considered by many to be one of the most influential men in history.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We continue our series on mathematics subject knowledge by exploring addition. For this session you may find it helpful to make the NCETM Self-evaluation Tools available for staff to use. 
ICT in the classroom
In our first article featuring the use of ICT in the classroom we explore the use of the interactive whiteboard. Taking inspiration from archaeology, we suggest activities which involve measures, data handling and co-ordinates and make links to literacy and history.
