Welcome to Issue 49 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue we feature the English artist L S Lowry. A little bit of history looks begins a series on inventions, starting with the television. Focus on... looks at the adventures of Sir Ranulph Fiennes, and Maths to share explores the research of Alison Borthwick and Micky Harcourt-Heath.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s extras we have information about the new draft National Curriculum for mathematics, reminders of various events that are happening this term, and news of an open call to become a committee member of ACME.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the well-known British artist L S Lowry. He is famous for his drawings and paintings of industrial landscapes of the north of England with ‘matchstick men’ people. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...Sir Ranulph Fiennes and The Coldest Journey
As you may know, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has had to pull out of the expedition to Antarctica, The Coldest Journey, due to frostbite. However, the expedition is still continuing, so this article is still a good starting point for exploring the maths behind the expedition and, of course, Antarctica, a land of snow and ice, freezing blizzards and -70° temperatures.
A little bit of history
This is the first in a new series about inventions. We begin with one of the most treasured items in many people’s homes, the television. 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
In this issue we explore the research by Alison Borthwick and Micky Harcourt-Heath about what children in Year 5 can do in calculation. It makes interesting reading and has implications for your teaching throughout the school. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
