Welcome to Issue 42 of the Primary Magazine (incorporating Early Years). In this issue we feature the artist Salvador Dalí. We have part two of the mathematical possibilities of the topic Britain since 1945Focus on... features Air/Sea search and rescue, and Maths to share continues our exploration of the latest Ofsted report.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s extras we have details of the draft Primary Curriculum, and we've got reminders of two important professional development opportunities funded by the NCETM.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the art of Salvador Dalí. Dalí is well known for his striking and bizarre paintings and also his work in film, sculpture, photography and books. He was a highly imaginative and quite eccentric man. Dalí was requested by a primary school teacher. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
This is the second article based on the project work Steve Pratchett carried out in some of his local primary schools. In this article, we focus on the mathematical opportunities of the Air/Sea search and rescue services.
A little bit of history
In this issue we look at more dates and events that have affected Britain since 1945. This is the second part of a two-part series, and looks at the Eighties, Nineties, Noughties, and briefly at this decade. This feature 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 second of a two-part series which looks at the key findings of the recent Ofsted report, Mathematics: made to measure. You might be interested in sharing the final findings with your colleagues, and leading discussions on its relevance to your school.
