Welcome to the 32nd issue of the Primary Magazine. Our history article focuses on the Romans, we look at the art of Gaudí and focus on buildings. Our CPD opportunity explores the use of the counting stick to support mathematical thinking and our ICT article looks at the use of video and animation. It’s in the News! features the Roman remains found in Hounslow. 


Editor's extras
In this issue we have some facts to play with, and information about a couple of conferences that are going on over the Easter holidays.
It's in the News!
Following the discovery of a Roman settlement complete with skeletons, swords and other Roman artefacts (and to link in to ‘A little bit of history’), It’s in the News! features the remains of a settlement discovered late last year at the site of a hotel development in Syon Park, Hounslow.
The Art of Mathematics
We feature the life and art of the artist Gaudí. He was actually an architect working in the ‘Art Nouveau’ period and was well known for designing some of the most amazing architectural masterpieces ever created. Gaudí is one of history’s most original architects.
Focus on...
We focus on the use of buildings to aid the development of children’s mathematical understanding. Areas of mathematics covered in this article are shape, counting, calculating, estimating and measuring.
A little bit of history
We are going cross-curricular once again and looking at some of the ways that you can link mathematics into a topic on the Romans. If you are looking at this period of history, you might like to try out some of the ideas.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
We look at the counting stick. This resource first became popular at the advent of the National Numeracy Strategy in 1999. Is it still in use in your school? If not, this CPD opportunity might be just for you. 
ICT in the classroom
We consider how the use of video and animation can add an exciting dimension to mathematics lessons and enable children to be creative and take ownership of their learning through producing films that are a product of their mathematical understanding.
