Primary Magazine Issue 56Hampton Court Palace by Harshil Shah, some rights reserved
Welcome to Issue 56 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue, The Art of Mathematics features the artist Dame Laura Knight. A Little Bit of History continues its series on inventions: in this issue we look at pencil sharpeners. Focus On... explores another mathematics trail, and Maths to Share looks at the Singapore ‘bar model’.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s Extras we have a reminder of the NCETM PD Lead Support events and the growing NCETM suite of videos to support the implementation of the new primary curriculum. We also have an interesting video to watch – it is about monster prime numbers!
The Art of Mathematics
In this issue, we explore the life and works of the artist Dame Laura Knight. She was an English Impressionist painter known for painting the world of London's theatre, ballet, and circus. She was also a war artist during the Second World War. She is considered to be the foremost female artist of her generation. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
We have the last in our short series of articles about mathematics trails outside the classroom as designed by students at Kingston University. This trail takes us around the Weapons Room at Hampton Court Palace.
A little bit of history
This is the seventh in our series about inventions. In this issue we look at another important piece of classroom equipment – the pencil sharpener! 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 an excellent way to make sense of word problems – the 'Singapore bar'. If you have any other areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
