Editor's Entrée
Find out how to adopt a word for a year and take a look at what is new on the portal.

Focus on...Communication
We return to this important area and take a look at some current initiatives, including ‘Talk to Your Baby’ and ‘Every Child a Talker’.

R4U - Research for You
Ian has withdrawn his article on place value so that he can take account of the current discussion on a new mathematics curriculum. Instead, we bring you Miss Count, who loves counting but needs a bit of help from a willing group of children.

There’s some good news from NRICH and a super snowman activity for you this month.

Case study
A student at Birmingham City University compares the mathematical experiences of children in a nursery with others cared for by a childminder. This thought-provoking study offers some very interesting observations, but you will have to decide which approach provides the firmer foundation for future mathematical progress for yourself.

Maths to share - CPD for you and your colleagues
We introduce Shonette Bason from Teachers TV and use two of her four programmes to consider the obstacles to going outdoors.

Contributors to this issue include Cherri Moseley, Pat Shoolbred and Ian Thompson.
