Welcome to Issue 52 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue The Art of Mathematics features the artist Johannes Vermeer. A Little Bit of History continues its series on inventions: in this issue we look at Blu-Tack. Focus on... looks at mathematics trails, and Maths to Share completes the exploration of the proposed changes to mathematics in the draft National Curriculum.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s extras we have a reminder of the NCETM PD Lead Support events, news of a suite of NCETM videos to support the implementation of the new primary curriculum, details of the latest round of funding for our Collaborative Teacher Projects programme, and an interesting video to watch.
The Art of Mathematics
This issue explores the Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer. He is famous for his realistic paintings that have an almost photographic quality. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
Now the weather is warmer and (generally!) drier, we begin a short series of articles about mathematics trails outside the classroom as designed by mathematics specialist students at Kingston University. Our first trail takes us around Legoland.
A little bit of history
This is the fourth in our series about inventions. In this issue we look at one of the teacher’s most coveted pieces of equipment – Blu-Tack! 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 last in our series of explorations of the changes to mathematics in the recent draft of the National Curriculum. These highlight implications for our teaching throughout the school. In this issue we look at the changes in upper KS2. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
