Welcome to Issue 51 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue The Art of Mathematics features the artist Damien Hirst. A little bit of history continues its series on inventions: in this issue we look at the Post-it Note. Focus on... looks at Spring, and Maths to share continues to explore the changes to mathematics in the new National Curriculum.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s extras we have a reminder of the NCETM PD Lead Support events and news of a suite of NCETM videos to support the implementation of the new primary curriculum.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores well-known British artist Damien Hirst. He is famous for his rather macabre artwork, as well as some lovely paintings that have a real mathematical feel about them. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
We have finally had a little glimpse of spring so that is this issue’s Focus. We explore facts about the season and give some mathematical ideas to try out.
A little bit of history
This is the third in our series about inventions: in this issue, we look at the Post-it Note. 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
We continue our three-part series in which we explore the changes to mathematics in the latest draft of the National Curriculum. These highlight implications for our teaching throughout the school. In this issue we look at the changes in lower KS2. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
