Welcome to the 41st issue of the Primary Magazine. In this issue we feature the artist Giotto di Bondone. We look at the mathematical possibilities of the topic 'Britain since 1945'. Focus on... features rainwater, and Maths to share explores the latest Ofsted report, Mathematics: made to measure.


Editor's extras
In this issue we have details of the latest Ofsted report, and an introduction to the author of some of our future Focus on... articles. We also have information about two important professional development opportunities funded by the NCETM.
The Art of Mathematics
We explore the art of Giotto di Bondone, known simply as Giotto. He is considered by some to be the second greatest artist of all time after Pablo Picasso. One reason for this is that he was the first artist to add emotion to his work.
Focus on...
During the next few issues of the Primary Magazine we will be featuring some articles written by Steven Pratchett. See Editor’s Extras for more information about Steve. Our first article describes a project entitled ‘What happens to rainwater?' Great for cross-curricular mathematics!
A little bit of history
In this issue we look at some dates and events that affected Britain since 1945. This is part one of a two-part series looking at the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, and was written as a result of a request from a reader. If you have any history topics that you would like us to make mathematical links to, please let us know.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
This is the first of a two-part article which looks at the key findings of the recent Ofsted report, Mathematics: made to measure. You might be interested in sharing the findings with your colleagues, and lead discussions on its relevance to your school.
