Welcome to Issue 55 of the Primary Magazine. We hope that you have had a great summer and are feeling refreshed for the new academic year. In this issue, The Art of Mathematics features the artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. A Little Bit of History continues its series on inventions: this time, we look at pencils. Focus on... explores another mathematics trail, and Maths to Share looks at some more research by a Mathematics Specialist Teacher.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s Extras we have details of new dates for the NCETM PD Lead Support events, and the growing suite of NCETM videos to support the implementation of the new Primary Curriculum. We also have a link to some fascinating research using colour rods, which mathematics subject leader Caroline Ainsworth undertook.
The Art of Mathematics
In this issue, we explore the life and works of the French artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec who, along with Cézanne, van Gogh, and Gaugin, is numbered among the greatest painters of the Post-Impressionist period. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
We have the third in our short series of articles about mathematics trails outside the classroom as designed by students at Kingston University. This trail takes us around Waterloo Station.
A little bit of history
This is the sixth in our series about inventions. In this issue we look at another important category of classroom equipment – pencils! 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 Maths to Share we look at some research carried out by Mathematics Specialist Teacher Peter Jones, which focused on using structured shapes to teach division to a group of lower attaining Year 5 pupils. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
